In an Instagram post, actor Chris Pratt announced he started a new film production company intended to bring Americans together all while providing entertaining content that everyone can enjoy.
In the unexpected announcement, Pratt wrote “so grateful for each step of this wonderful journey.” He added, “I’ve started a company. Indivisible Productions. One nation. Under God. Indivisible.”
Pratt wrote, “our mission statement is to create entertaining content, focusing on themes which will help to bridge the growing divide in our country and world.”
The company is designed to “make the world a better place.”
Pratt, who’s famous for movies such as the Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, teased the release in the video he posted as well by sharing the name of his new company after a mini tour of posters from all the movies and TV shows he’s starred in over the years.
So far, Pratt hasn’t indicated which, if any films the company is working on, but religion will likely be an underlying theme in future films.
In a tweet, Pratt said the Pledge of Allegiance inspired the name of his new company. “Hearing the pledge of allegiance at my kid’s cub scout meeting the name hit me. INDIVISIBLE “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” He added, “It’s the perfect name for a company intent on creating content which aims to sew the growing divide in this country.”
A progressive political activist organization named Indivisible Guide tried claiming ownership over Pratt’s trademarked production name, but the Christian actor quickly and respectfully shut them down.
“See movie, stow phone, laugh beside somebody you’ve been told you hate,” is what Pratt wants to inspire others to do.
Pratt is well known for sharing his Christian faith publicly an unapologetically. At the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, for example, Pratt told the crowd, “I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my lord and savior, Jesus Christ.”
The exact projects of the production company are unknown, but it seems Pratt will avoid any overt political messages, instead focusing on common values shared among Americans are entertaining the people from all walks of life.
