Odyssey Channel to Repeat 'Voyage of the Unicorn'

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Odyssey channel will give an encore presentation of "The Voyage of the Unicorn" on Saturday, March 10th at 2 pm EST. The four hour film is an adaptation of LDS artist and BYU professor James C. Christensen's classic children's book "The Voyage of the Basset." The Hallmark Entertainment production premiered last Friday and Saturday evenings on Odyssey.

Both the book and the film tell the story of widowed mythology scholar Alan Aisling and his two daughters as they struggle to deal with the death of their mother and wife. In the process, they find themselves in a fantasy world of trolls, dwarves and fairies in an attempt to save the fairy kingdom from the trolls. Their journey also teaches them that the only constant of life is change, and, led by a simple and engaging message, the ship's motto, "Credendo Vides" - by believing, one sees, the family goes through a transformation to a more serene reality.

Like all the content on the Odyssey channel, "The Voyage of the Unicorn" is billed as suitable for families.
