The King of Kings is based on a Charles Dickens story about the life of Jesus. Branagh and Thurman voice Charles and Catherine Dickens.

In The King of Kings, Charles tells the story of Jesus to his son. The animated medium allows Charles and his son to interact with Jesus and the other characters in the Bible.

The Dickens family cat, Willa, is also a character in the film. Seong-ho "Jay" Jang directs and co-wrote with Rob Edwards.

MoFac says The King of Kings is in the final stages of production and voice recording. They are seeking distribution.
