El Burrito Cowboy saves Douglas, Arizona will feature the main characters from the show. Join El Burrito Cowboy, Amiga Sue, La Paquita Vaquita and friends as they save Douglas from the evil Phantom before it becomes a ghost town. 

 “My goal with this movie is to get people talking about Douglas in a fun and positive way,” Sahagun said. “The idea is that people will watch the movie and want to visit.” This past fall, the film director set up a campaign to fund the movie which raised $2,700 of his $10,000 goal.

 “We need to raise money to make this movie that will be fun for the whole family,” said Sahagun. “Our budget will allow the cast and crew to film in Douglas for 10 days. Once the movie is in distribution we will donate a portion of profits to revitalizing our precious G Avenue.

” According to Sahagun, the movie will show the beauty of Douglas, but also the fact that it needs help. A portion of the money earned from the movie sales will benefit beautification projects around the community. “It's amazing what a coat of paint will do,” Sahagun said.

“For example, the money could be used to pay a muralist to put artwork across town, and plant trees and flowers or any other ideas the community has. We want to include the community to help Douglas shine again!” 

 The cast and crew will film in town Jan. 12 and 13, 19 through 21, and 26 through 28. Donations for pre and post-production expenses are still greatly needed.
