Back in May 2015, the LDS community learned that Saturday’s Warrior was officially coming to the big screen. The story follows the Flinders family on Earth after they make promises to each other in the pre-mortal life; it was first presented as a college project from Lex de Azevedo and Douglas Stewart in 1973. It quickly turned in a Mormon cult classic, with sold-out stage shows and a 1989 video version.
Now, we’ve finally got the first look at the completed film, set to hit select theaters on April 1, 2016. It stars Kenny Holland as Jimmy Flinders, Anna Daines as Pam Flinders, Monica Moore Smith as Julie Flinders, Mason Davis as Todd Richards, and Alex Boye as the Heavenly Host.

The classical musical now has digitally enhanced picture quality, improved sound, “The making of” documentary, bloopers and out-takes. The minute “making of the video” is an inspirational look at the cast and crew 10 years after the Saturday’s Warrior video was made and how that experience together has touched their lives over the years. It is funny and fun at times and very tender and spiritual at other times. The bloopers and out-takes are just plain fun. Shop now! The soundtrack is also available here.
