Watch the New Trailer for “Once I Was Engaged”

In 2015, “Once I Was a Beehive” told the story of a young woman who attends a Latter-day Saint Girl’s Camp, learning about faith, healing, and friendship. Now, the much-anticipated sequel is set to hit theaters.

Written and directed by Maclain Nelson, “Once I Was Engaged” brings back all the original film’s favorite cast of characters, including Bree (Clare Niederpruem), Holly (Hailey Smith), Lane (Paris Warner), and of course, Carrie Carrington (Lisa Valentine Clark). And this film introduces a couple key new characters, including Curt Carrington; Carrie’s husband and Bree’s father, played by High School Musical’s Bart Johnson; and Thys Chesterfield, played by Studio C’s Tanner Gillman. 

“Fans have been screaming for a sequel ever since we released the first film,” said Nelson. “And we are beyond excited for everyone to get back to the movie theatre and experience the next chapter in the lives of their favorite campers.” 

The story takes place about two years after the original. The young women and their leaders have grown up (some more than others), and Bree’s surprise engagement and the whirlwind of wedding planning brings them all back together – with hilarious and touching results. 

Even though the story is a sequel to the first film, audiences will also get to see the original girls as their much younger selves for the first time. “I won’t give away too much, but old and new fans alike get to learn so much more history of the girls,” explained Clare Niederpruem, who plays Bree. “Audiences will absolutely adore them, and who knows, maybe there’s a prequel story to BEEHIVE that needs to be told.” 

“Once I Was Engaged” opens exclusively in Utah theaters on Friday, July 21, before expanding to Arizona, Idaho, and Nevada on August 6 and nationally on August 13.
