The Queen of Persia

The Animated Purim Story


The Queen of Persia: The Animated Purim Story

A virtuous heroine. A wicked villain. It’s the ancient, true story of Queen Esther, brought vividly to life in a delightfully educational way.

Hi Arthur,

It looks like the website is down, but I do see the DVD available on Amazon. You can also contact the producers directly via their website, shazak.com. I hope that helps. Reply

Thank you for this excellent Purim education The music and simple story telling and graphics kept my (religious)uneducated five year old granddaughter interested and delighted throughout the whole story, it was a better version than one I read to her that totally bored her. At the end of your animated video she said"now I know".
Than you Chabad!😇 Reply

Watched it for school project. Was recommended by school Rabbi. * * *
Yes, the story is fun and meant for kids - but kids don't like it if that is too obvious. I think that this was put together a bit childish-ly. If there was a more adult-ty version of it, without the "shopping at midnight wine sale" nonsense, I would rate it "* * * * *".
This is coming from an 11 year old, an inside view from a kid.

Thank you for reading! Reply

I'm 14, and I still love watching/reading the books and videos. They are always fun, and still teach me things that I missed. They also get me thinking. It would be cool to have a version for the more "mature but still a kid at heart" people. I like your view, about how it is meant for kids. It also has some parts that I think are pretty accurate. Especially the "Headache after 100+ days of wine". I'm surprised that Achashvarosh wasn't dead. Either way, I hope you have a good life, and that you lie a long time.

From the Producer of Shazak This is absolutely my favorite Shazak Production! I love it and can't get enough of it. Such a wonderful blend of humor and history. It is ten chapters and it follows the ten chapters of Megillas Esther.

This was our first production and it has a special mesmerizing magic to it. SPLENDIFOROUS!

BTW: My favorite part is when Esther is chosen as queen.

We, at Shazak are busy now working on a Shazak Parsha of the entire 54 parshiyos of the Torah. Reply

I love your works! Thank you, Shazak!

Could Shazak make a video about David Hamelech? It would be awesome!
