Last week, the Church announced the release of a new live-action video series titled “Book of Mormon Videos.” That same day, they released a video trailer for the first season.
Today, the Church released a new 9-minute behind-the-scenes video showing how the series was made.
The first video of the series will be available next Friday, September 20. A new video will be published every week through the end of the year. (See the schedule below.)
The videos will be available on the Book of Mormon Videos YouTube channel, at ChurchofJesusChrist.org, on the Mormon Channel platforms, and in the Gospel Library app. Subscribe to the YouTube channel to be notified when new videos are published.
The purpose of the video series is to help us increase our understanding of the Book of Mormon as a second witness of Jesus Christ (the first being the Bible). The video series can also be used as supplementary material for “Come, Follow Me,” the Church’s personal scripture study program.
The Book of Mormon Video Library will be available initially in 15 languages: Cantonese, Cebuano, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, Tagalog, and Tongan.
