Religion has always been something that either brings people together or divides them. Centuries have gone by and the fight for and against religion continues to be a part of our society even today. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if everyone just came together, keeping all their differences aside, wouldn’t that be revolutionary? The movie, Jesus Revolution, follows this premise and brings us something new!
Jesus Revolution is an upcoming American movie that will be directed by Jon Erwin and Brent McCorkle. This movie follows the concept of spiritual awakening and is based on true events that took place in the early 1970s. Although the release of this movie is still a few months away, people can’t stop raving about the concept and are eager to learn more about it. So here’s everything you need to know about Jesus Revolution, from the plot to the case, to the release date and more:

What Is The Plot of Jesus Revolution?
The movie takes place in the year 1969, in Southern California. As most of us know, the Southern part of California is predominantly Catholic, with other religions sprinkled across as a minority. Things were similar back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but back then people were more rigid and less welcoming. However, things take a turn in the movie Jesus Revolution when a whole bunch of young hippies make their way to Southern California with the sole purpose of reconsidering the truth through the means of liberation.
Pastor Chuck Smith, who the movie is based on, opens the door of his church for these young hippies. While not everyone agrees with the integration of these hippies into the church, Pastor Chuck Smith makes sure they are welcome, and this marks the beginning of the greatest spiritual awakening in the history of the United States of America. Jesus Revolution is all about leaving your judgment at the door and welcoming anyone and everyone with open arms and loving one another despite what they do and where they came from. There’s no doubt that Jesus Revolution will be a beautiful movie and a journey you’d definitely want to be a part of.
The Cast of Jesus Revolution
The cast of Jesus Revolution will be a huge one since there are several parts in play. Some of these faces might be familiar while others might be new, nevertheless, it will be a pool of some incredibly talented people. Joel Courtney will be playing the role of Greg Laurie. You might recognize Courtney from his work in the famous movie series, The Kissing Booth. It wasn’t long before this 26-year-old actor became a fan favorite and it will be exciting to see him in a different role. One of the most important characters is Pastor Chuck Smith, who will be played by Allen Kelsey Grammer, who is best known for his work in shows like Fraiser, Cheers, and Boss.
Apart from Grammer and Courtney, the other cast members include Anna Grace Barlow, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Nicholas Cirillo, Julia Campbell, Jonathan Roumie, Nic Bishop, and many more. It will be interesting for their characters to work together and be a part of the Jesus Revolution!
