The videos’ main purpose is to help both Latter-day Saints and individuals of other faiths increase their understanding of the Book of Mormon as a second witness of Jesus Christ (the first being the Bible).
“As I’m directing the scene … I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’m so thankful that I’m seeing this.’ I’ve read the book many times, but just to see it come to life is awesome, and I think people all over the world are going to respond to that,” said Adam Anderegg, one of the series’ directors. “It’s not necessarily a dramatization of the scriptures — it’s a visualization of the scriptures.”

I'm particularly looking forward to the "visualization" of 2 Nephi 5:21
"And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them."
As production for season three wraps and post-production begins, new videos and images from the first and second seasons, covering Book of Mormon chapters 1 Nephi 1 through Enos 1, will be released each Friday from September 20 to December 27, 2019.
Additional videos, including seasons three and four, will be released in 2020 and 2021.
