On March 5, 2024, the official trailer of the exciting series Testament: The Story Of Moses dropped on the internet and was well received. The trailer has a duration of two minutes and five seconds and it consists of some of the most exciting moments and dialogues from the series.

It opens with a man with folded hands on a water body, saying: ‘I had a dream. A shadow of a man. Surrounded by darkness.’ As these words are heard, we see glimpses of the Egyptian empire along with quick shots of a man walking towards the camera. A lady is then heard saying, ‘My son has returned. It’s Moses.’ Subsequently, the face of Moses is revealed.

He is introduced to everyone as someone whom God has commanded to lead everyone out of bondage. As the trailer moves forward, we see Moses struggling to help the Hebrews and his people against the oppressive empire.

There are also interviews of experts on the subject who talk about Moses. One of them says, ‘So much of the Judeo-Christian religion rides on Moses. He’s a founding father.’ While another expert says, ‘He’s special. He’s gods chosen prophet.’

Later on, we see the Egyptian kings tightening their grip on the civilians and harassing them. Moses then transforms into a leader and leads his people to save them.

One person, during the interview, says: ‘Everything about his life speaks to us to this day.’ Another one talks about the importance of freedom and states, ‘What it takes to get free is different from what it takes to stay free.’ The trailer further showcases several iconic shots mentioned in the Bible like the swarm of insects and the parting of water. It is well-edited and filled with exciting shots from the overall series.

Conclusion

Moses is one of the most influential prophets in several religions including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Rastafari, Baháʼí Faith, Druze Faith, and Samaritanism. Hence, it’s a tall task to put and tell his story on the screen.

So it is commendable that the makers decided to tackle this subject since most people avoid it because religion is a very tricky and sensitive topic. Years ago, the world witnessed the iconic story of Moses through The Ten Commandments movie. The film was a major success and is considered a milestone of cinema.

However, a lot of years have passed since then and the world needs more inspirational stories of the like of Moses. So 2024 seems like the right time to release this film. Moses life is filled with ups and downs and he remains a big figure in history.

Looking at the trailer, it seems that people who don’t know much about him will also be able to relate and connect with his journey through Testament: The Story of Moses. Apart from being a religious figure, he was also a person who had high moral values. His life story works as a source of inspiration for many and will continue to increase.

The miniseries will be able to resonate well with religious groups as well as people who aren’t into such stories. The trailer is a testament that the series has been made well and handed with care and a lot of thought. Every frame looks beautiful and exciting. Fans cannot wait for the day the series will drop on Netflix.
