Chris Pratt’s Uniting the Country with Indivisible Productions

Chris Pratt has invited us all on a journey, allowing us a brief glimpse into what his future holds.

In a video on Instagram, Pratt took us through a tour of his new office, serenading us with theme songs from the shows and movies he’s been a part of through the years. This built to the unveiling of his own production company, Indivisible Productions.

“One nation. Under God. Indivisible,” Pratt wrote on his Instagram post to describe his company, quoting lines from the Pledge of Allegiance and drawing upon his own patriotism. A cursory glance through Pratt’s Instagram page shows you the sort of person he is. Very true to his faith and very grounded in deeply rooted values.

The mission statement of his new venture is clear. The goal will be to produce content which bridges the growing divide in our country while creating entertaining content.

“You know, make the world a better place,” Pratt wrote at the end of his post. “No biggie, you’re welcome, but it’s whatever.”

Pratt, known for his Christian faith, seems to be pulling from his spiritual background as the basis for his company, though we don’t yet know about any films he’s planning. Furthermore, Pratt stated in a separate post earlier this year how his brother, and other veterans, positively influenced his life, so we can safely assume this will be part of his vision.

Pratt’s religious and patriotic alignment have sometimes been called into question. In recent years, Pratt has come under fire for his association with Hillsong Church—with members who include celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner. Ellen Page called out Pratt in a public tweet, asking him why he’d attend a church notorious for being anti-LGBTQ.

Pratt fought back, defending his church as a tolerant organization and reaffirming his love for all. He wrote about his stance on faith versus his own identity, providing further insight into what we may see with his film production company.

“My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life,” Pratt wrote in response to the issues surrounding Hillsong Church and Page’s message. “My values define who I am. We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgement of their fellow man.”

The verbiage in Pratt’s announcement regarding his production company suggests his film projects may support an underlying message of faith while accepting and welcoming people’s different belief systems. There is a tone full of patriotism in not just this announcement, but many of Pratt’s posts, and perhaps we’re going to see more of a classic American feel to his films reminiscent of American Graffiti or maybe more along the lines of movies like Saving Private Ryan which highlight real American heroes.

As Pratt said at the end of his video announcing Indivisible Productions, “Boom. Get ready.”

And, oh, we are totally there. We’ve got a ton more to look forward to from Pratt, who recently remarried, served as an executive producer for the film Ghostdraft, and has been involved with countless charities and events. 2020 is shaping up to be his year.
