The film was never finished because Tom Laughlin could not secure funding to finishing it, an amazing thing given that it is estimated 'Billy Jack' made upwards of 300 million dollars and 'Trial of Billy Jack' made 89 million. Even today (December of 2020), I'd give anything just to see what they had shot, not even the full finished film. Perhaps someday someone will realize how many true fans there are out here who would love to see what they had. Shame on Warners and Paramount et al. who were all so shortsighted when Mr. Laughlin was alive. God speed.
