  • Billy and Blaze movie release date????

    Does anyone know? The projected date was coming summer of 2019, then in August. Now nothing. I know production and financing stalled a while but I thought it was back on track. Zero mention of the movie on our local theater's calendar. Or of the release on the movie FB page.
    I have a Grandma day I'd like to plan and a few lady friends who want to share in the fun.

    I dunno but I'll be there! LOVED those books and the trailer looks terrific!

      I found a notice on their FB site from June indicating they'd finished a rough cut. Not sure they have a distributor, which would make it unlikely that it'd show up anytime real soon at your local cineplex.

      Maybe you could reach out to them via FB?

        . Currently in post-production, the artistic and heartwarming film is expected to be released this fall.

            my guess is the release will be at one of the arts fairs/ film festivals .... not saying it is happening with Billy and Blaze but often movies such as Billy and Blaze, the way it was produced lends itself to boarder exposure in such fairs and festivals

                I can't wait!

                For anyone else who hasn't seen the trailer, it's here:

                  After final cut and post-production completes, it will play at a round of smaller film festivals - probably Middleburg's will be the first public showing of the final cut, given the time-frame between completion and intended release and the obvious Equestrian angle at the festival's location - until someone scoops it up for distribution, if it's even put up for distribution. They may simply choose to do it themselves, which is entirely possible these days. Given how these things usually go, I'd say DVD release next year on WalMart racks - WalMart actually buys these sorts of family/childrens films and sells them exclusively in their retail stores - or direct sale via Amazon and maybe VOD via the usual players. Given the lack of broadband in most of Horse Country USA and it's obvious status as a legendary children's story, a DVD release is very much likely, though I wouldn't bet on it being available on Blu-Ray or Ultra High-Definition Blu-Ray, which is a shame because the film was shot using cinema-grade cameras that give very good image quality that lends itself to being shown in the highest quality possible and they obviously put effort and money into achieving shots that clearly show how beautiful the rolling countryside of Old Virginia is.
