It has been a long time coming, but The Unbreakable Boy is now scheduled to release in theaters in February of 2025, according to Deadline. The film, which is based on a true story about a boy with brittle-bone syndrome and autism, was originally set to roll out in March of 2022, only to be shelved by Lionsgate studio and Kingdom Story Company with no public explanation as to why.

That latter outfit, set up in 2018 by the Christian brother duo of Jon and Andrew Erwin in partnership with Lionsgate, shot the movie, with the brothers serving as producers. Another leading Christian filmmaker, Jon Gunn, wrote and directed the film, in which child actor Jacob Laval plays said boy, who despite those aforementioned health challenges inspires those around him with "his joyous, funny, life-affirming world view," as the movie's synopsis puts it.


Zachary Levi, who starred in the Erwins' American Underdog back in 2021, plays his father in the picture, which also features Patricia Heaton; she is another top talent who has worked with the Alabama brothers before, having played a role in their 2014 faith-based comedy, Moms' Night Out.


The Unbreakable Boy is set to release on February 21, 2025, and Christian Film Blog will keep you up to date on developments. In the meantime, you can catch the next picture from Kingdom Story Company and the Erwins, Ordinary Angels, in about a month. The film, which we reported on here, rolls out in theaters starting on February 23rd of this year and the trailer below will give you a feel for what to expect.
