According to a Kickstarter campaign for the film, “Saturday’s Warrior” is a musical written by Douglas Stewart and Executive Producer Lex de Azevedo based on the idea that we existed before this life. The live stage production began showing in 1974 and a staged film version came out in 1989. This “reboot” will be the first full-length feature film version and is said to be for the next generation of Mormons.
It will be set in 1970s San Francisco and features the talents of social media sensation Kenny Holland in the lead role of Jimmy Flinders, and Mormon Tabernacle choir member and YouTube star Alex Boye as the heavenly guide. Mason Davis plays Tod Richards, with Monica Smith as Julie Flinders. Michael Buster, known for “17 Miracles,” “God’s Army” and “Saints and Soldiers,” is directing. “High School Musical” choreographer Bonnie Story is doing the choreography.
The movie was filmed in various locations around Utah, including at Ogden’s Union Station.
“Saturday’s Warrior” hits the big screen in select Utah movie theaters on April 1.
