I want to just drop a quick note and say thanks so much for going for this!! After a lot of encouragement from friends, I finally read The Wingfeather Saga this summer, and have absolutely fallen in love with the story! So of course when I found out that an animated series was in the works, I was insanely excited! This is such a great story, and I totally love all the amazing messages and Biblical connections that help to remind and encourage me in my faith. I really cannot wait for all you guys’ hard work out for the world to see. 😊

I know this has been a lot of work and I’m sure this week is really stressful, but you are ALMOST THERE! This is a story worth telling and we can’t wait to see what you have done with it.

Yes, thank you everyone! I’ve dabbled a bit in animation and taken some filmmaking lessons and I know how ridiculously long these animations take to make, and how hard everyone has to work. Thanks for doing it! I can’t wait to see my favorite book series come to the screen. It’s going to be amazing, I’m sure!

So excited to see the pilot! Our small group leader just picked up the first book to read and we’re headed over family friends (who haven’t read the books) to watch the premiere on the big screen. We’re sharing this beautiful story with as many families as we can. Thanks for doing kingdom work with all your labors!

Dear Andrew, Chris, and everyone –
Thank you so much for all the hard work you are doing and have done for the animated series. The Wingfeather Saga, combined with Andrew’s songs, have been a major inspiration and a life-changing message for me, and I can’t imagine what I’d be like without them. I am so excited to see the pilot in a couple of days, and will continue to support you through this journey. Thank you again – I don’t know how to properly thank you, but I have tried.
P.S. Andrew, I don’t know if you remember, but I met you at a BLG concert in Illinois last year and you signed a book for me – “For Kayla – and Lily!” So thanks again for doing that, and I’ve solved Safiki’s riddle now. – M

From my kids (8 and 6) to the animation team (we have read all the books):
“Thank you for making this awesome video!! It is the best ever! We are so excited to see the rest some day. Thank you again for all your hard work!! :-)”
And thank you again from me as well! The characters, scenes and music are phenomenal! My mom used to say never watch a movie before you read the book version, you will just be disappointed. This is just the opposite- I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to read the books after seeing it or being disappointed in this depiction if they had already read them all!
