ABC will have their annual airing of the movie The Ten Commandments the Saturday evening before Easter, with Charlton Heston as Moses. I am in awe every time I watch it and see the water part. On Easter night, ABC will have the Peanuts Gang in "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown".
The network UP has two weeks of Religious Themed Movies in their Greatest Stories of the Bible Series, including The Passion of the Christ. For me, it is one of the most meaningful movies of the crucifixion. I love that we get to see a Jesus as a Baby, a young Boy, and as a Man... as He preaches and teaches, leads His disciples, is crucified on the cross, and then, as He is raised from the dead three days later. (Please note: due to violence, this movie is not suitable for young children.)
The Hallmark Channel and INSP will show special Easter Episodes of "The Waltons".
TBN will also have Religious Themed Easter Movies.
ABC Family will have the adorable Easter Bunny themed movie HOP.
Disney will have Easter Cartoons.
TCM will have Religious Themed Easter Movies and be sure to get out your Easter Bonnet and Dancing Shoes... for the classic Easter Movie, Easter Parade, with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire!
Be sure to visit the Family TV Schedule for times airing for these Easter Specials and More!
Have a Blessed Easter, Everyone!
