The first film, which started making waves after its online release in early March, advocated for the arrest of Ugandan warlord and LRA leader Joseph Kony.

It received widespread criticism for oversimplifying a more complex issue, and even prompted a response video from Ugandan president Yoweri Museven.

The new film will provide more details and context about the campaign against Joseph Kony and an update about the organization’s nationwide “Cover the Night” event scheduled for April 20, Invisible Children officials said.

The follow-up film has been made without the say of Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell, who suffered a mental breakdown following public backlash to the film.
