Candace Cameron Bure Says ‘Massive Audience’ Wants Faith-Based Movies – ‘They Feel Like Their Voice Isn’t Heard’

Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame is speaking out to defend faith-based movies, saying that there is a “major audience” for them despite what some in Hollywood may say.

Cameron Bure Defends Faith-Based Movies

“There’s a lot of people in the country that we call ‘the flyover states,’ [so] not on the coast, and they feel like their voice isn’t heard. And yet, these are the movies that they wanna see,” Cameron Bure, 48, told Yahoo Entertainment.

“Listen, I live in [California], I’m on one of the coasts and I want to see these movies; there’s a massive audience for them,” she continued. “And I think that networks and studios have recognized it over the years because these movies do very, very well. They do. And people come out and they support them. So I think it’s only gaining traction [and] getting better, whether it’s on television or in the theaters.”

Cameron Bure’s New Faith-Based Movie

Cameron Bure is currently promoting her new Great American Family movie “Unsung Hero,” which tells the true story of the Smallbone family, who are two of the biggest acts in the world of Christian rock. The Smallbone family moved with their seven children from Australia to the United States with nothing but their suitcases and their strong Christian faith, and they managed to build new lives here through their Godly musical talents.

“I’ve been a longtime fan of their music and having known them for so long, I didn’t actually know their origin story,” admitted Cameron Bure, whose production company Candy Rock Entertainment produced the film. “I read the script and I was blown away and I was like, I absolutely wanna be a part of this project. Not only because they are friends, but it is such an uplifting and encouraging movie and these are the types of projects that Candy Rock is doing: providing really good family entertainment.”

Cameron Bure went on to say that the film’s family-first message “resonates with me in every aspect.”

“As much as I’ve got going on within my career and as much as I work, you know, my family’s always No. 1 and that’s my first priority,” she explained. “Just as a mom, when you think the world is chaotic or you just are too busy and you’re overwhelmed, it’s like the big pause is — it’s just about my family. Is my family safe? Is my family healthy? Do I love my husband and love my children? Do they know that I love them? It’s what it all boils down to.”

Cameron Bure Loves Making These Movies

This is exactly the type of content that Cameron Bure wanted to produce when she shocked the world when she left the Hallmark Channel in April of 2022 and made the move to Great American Family.

“I’m very excited to develop heartwarming family and faith-filled programming and make the kind of stories my family and I love to watch,” Cameron Bure told Variety at the time. “I am constantly looking for ways that I can inspire people to live life with purpose.”

“GAC fits my brand perfectly; we share a vision of creating compelling wholesome content for an audience who wants to watch programming for and with the whole family,” she added. “Great, quality entertainment with a positive message is what my partnership with GAC is all about.”

It’s clear that Unsung Hero is just the kind of movie that Cameron Bure wants to be making right now, and given how popular Christian movies are these days, it’s sure to be a huge success. Be sure to check out Unsung Hero when it hits theaters this Friday!

James Conrad

James Conrad’s passion for politics is only overshadowed by his longstanding interest in Hollywood. His unique perspective as a gay conservative fuels him to challenge celebrity views and those who think they have a right to tell anyone how to think or vote. James proudly wields his minority point of view to combat identity politics and cut through his typecast. Fun fact: James’ guilty pleasure is the British royal family.
