Netflix Releases Trailer for New Christian Musical, ‘’A Week Away’’

Earlier this week, Netflix released the trailer for its forthcoming film, A Week Away. This movie is set at a Christian summer camp and it has a family-friendly musical theme. It features songs from some renowned gospel music artists.

According to Netflix, the film is about the story of a troubled teen named Will Hawkins (acted by Kevin Quinn) who “has a run-in with the law that puts him at an important crossroad: go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp. At first a fish-out-of-water, Will opens his heart, discovers love with a camp regular (Bailee Madison), and sense of belonging in the last place he expected to find it.


The musical happens in "Camp Aweekaway". It was given that name because of the reason that was said in the camp trailer by the camp owner. 

“Every once in a while, somebody’s just a week away from experiencing something that changed everything for them.”

The trailer showed scenes of activities of summer camps. The activities include a lot of High School Musical-esque dance moves. Also, it pictured the growing relationship between Will and Avery.

The co-writer and producer of A Week Away - Alan Powell – was active in the Christian-based film, The Reason. While speaking to The Christian Post about the movie, he said that that he felt that the faith-based movie industry was missing a good musical. Hence, he decided to create one himself.

"I love musicals in general, as I'm sure you can probably speculate, loving film and loving music. Musicals are my favorite, and I just remember thinking, 'I don't know why there's nothing in the faith-based space. There's never been a musical in a faith-based space. It doesn't make any sense to me, seeing as how music is probably, and arguably, the biggest business within the Christian culture, quite honestly,” he said.

The movie has a few Christian references in its trailer. However, there are expectations of songs from gospel music stars such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, For King and Country, Steve Curtis Chapman, and more. The release date for A Week Away is set for March 26.
