Animating Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’


Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet,” the 2014 animated feature by Roger Allers (of “The Lion King” fame), represents a concerted effort to bring Gibran’s work to an even wider audience.

 Like Tarn’s adaptation, Allers’ film doesn’t attempt to be utterly faithful to Gibran’s text, but samples and excerpts eight chapters from the work. Each of these vignettes is drawn by a different animator, most well-known figures in animation circles.
