Joseph Smith Movie to Reach a Wider Audience Online

A new version of Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration is now available online at mormonchannel.org/Joseph.

The original 2005 film focuses on the role that Joseph Smith played in restoring the Church of Jesus Christ.

The new version stays true to that purpose, using both reedited footage from the original film and new footage to create a product that is more easily shared with a wider audience, including nonmembers. About 40 percent of the film is new.
