The Wingfeather Saga is a popular book and animated series that has garnered a lot of attention from Christian audiences. 

The Wingfeather Saga is known for promoting themes such as faith, hope, sacrifice, redemption, and courage. These themes are common in Christian teachings, and they are also central to the storyline. The beloved free kids' show follows a family's journey through a magical land as they discover their true identities, fight against evil forces, and ultimately find redemption.

The Wingfeather Saga Summarized

The Wingfeather Saga is a four-book fantasy series written by Andrew Peterson.  It tells the story of the Igiby family, who live in a world called Aerwiar, where sea dragons, toothy cows, and other strange creatures exist. The Igiby siblings, Janner, Tink, and Leeli, find themselves at the center of a great mystery which sends them on a perilous journey. Along the way they discover their true identities, fight against evil, and attempt to save their world from destruction.

Throughout their journey, the siblings encounter various allies and enemies, including the wicked Fangs of Dang, led by the fearsome Gnag the Nameless. They also learn about the Shining Isle of Anniera, a faraway kingdom with a rich history that holds the key to their destiny.

Is The Wingfeather Saga a Christian Show?

It’s not an overtly Christian story—it’s a deeply Christian story. Andrew Peterson, the author of the book series and an executive producer of the show, is a Christian, and his agenda was simply to tell the best adventure story he could. His faith is therefore naturally embedded in his storytelling. The main characters believe in a Maker who is good, they confront evil within and without, and the story demonstrates the power of sacrificial love. The hope, however, is that viewers of all backgrounds can enjoy the show.
