“I had the same reaction to the trailer as I did when we first blended The Shepherd and The Messengers together. Tears,” said The Chosen’s creator, Dallas Jenkins. “This Special captures the joy and meaning of the Jesus story more than anything we’ve done:”
“Beginning in 2021 with CHRISTMAS WITH THE CHOSEN: THE MESSENGERS, the collaboration between Fathom Events and The Chosen has been both ground-breaking and record-breaking,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “The first event in this collaboration brought more than 1.1M+ fans out to theaters – at the time, an all-time record for Fathom Events. With this success, it became clear that there is a huge audience for The Chosen and the desire to share this content with a community. After two additional releases, which saw another 1.5M+ fans go to theaters! We are really looking forward to this new holiday event for 2023.”
