“Louie Zamperini’s story has been an inspiration to tens of millions of people of faith, and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is responding to this outpouring of support by creating a special bonus disc that celebrates his life and his testimony,” said Matthew Faraci, spokesman for Universal Home Entertainment’s faith outreach.
The company released exclusive new footage from its March 24th release of Unbroken on Blu-Ray and DVD, with a special Legacy of Faith bonus disc available on the DVD. Unbroken is one of only two faith films nominated for an Academy Award this year, and has received overwhelming support from faith leaders and audiences alike. The Legacy of Faith bonus disc features 90 minutes of content from Louie Zamperini, Billy Graham, Greg Laurie, and others.
Adapted from author Laura Hillenbrand’s popular book, Unbroken tells the true story about the resilient power of the human spirit. Olympian and war hero Louie Zamperini survived on a raft for 47 days along with two other crewmen after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII. They were caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a series of prisoner of war camps.
