Reality television star Sadie Robertson joined fellow cast members Monday for the movie premiere of "God's Not Dead 2" in Los Angeles. God's Not Dead 2 is scheduled to open in theaters April 1.

"It was a wonderful premiere (for a) truly amazing film," said Robertson on her Facebook page this week. "I am so honored that got to be a part of this God's Not Dead Movement. It will encourage, and inspire all people!"

God's Not Dead 2 is a Christian drama film directed by Harold Cronk. It is the sequel to the 2014 film God's Not Dead. Its plot focuses on a high school teacher (Melissa Joan Hart) who faces an epic court case that could end her career after answering a student's (Hayley Orrantia) question about the similarities of the teachings of Jesus to those of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.

Isaac Drummer Mc Conkey on social media posted he can't wait to see the movie in theaters:  "The first one (God's Not Dead movie) changed my life, I know the second one will change my life again. I'm so excited about it."

Robertson, 18, plays the character "Marlene" in the upcoming movie. It will be her movie debut.

Fan Annette Roberts thanked Robertson online for "speaking to the world about God and His grace. I love your family for doing this and so PROUD of you. You make the South look good!"
