In an interview S David Acuff asked Bill Muir what went wrong with the 2011 "director's cut" version of the film that kept it from succeeding. The short version of Bill Muir's answer is that it lacked a brand sufficient to attract enough film-goers to make the movie financially feasible to distribute. Earlier in the interview Bill Muir had mentioned that, at the end of editing, the movie was clearly targeting 6- to 13-year-olds. The biggest brand for that age group is Disney, but Disney shuns Christian themes. An alternative to eliminating Christian references was to incorporate a wrap around and elevate some of the movie's themes. Alex Kendrick had been successful in getting some Christian movies distributed, so Muir asked Kendrick to appear in the wrap around, essentially making Kendrick the brand.

After being unable to arrange for a release of The Lost Medallion in 2010, Bill Muir took the 2011 version of the film on the U.S./Canada film festival circuit in 2011 to try to build buzz for the film. Film Festival screenings included the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival (March 5, 6 and 13 listing a 90 minute runtime in San Luis Obispo, California), the Orlando Film Festival (September 29 in Orlando, Florida), and the Heartland Film Festival (October 16, in Indianapolis, Indiana).

(at around 12 mins) Billy swims to the shore where Allie is sitting, and uses a towel to dry his hair and wrap around his shoulders while they talk. He starts to walk off, still shirtless, but moments later he is wearing a shirt, carrying a pack with its strap across his shoulder, and with no towel in sight.

(at around 14 mins) As Billy and Allie ride up to the orphanage on his scooter and pass the orphanage sign a dark brown pack is in Billy's lap with a narrow tan strap running from his right shoulder to his left hip. The shot cuts to one of the scooter stopping where Billy's lap is empty and a wide, dark canvas strap of a different pack runs from his right shoulder to his left hip.

(at around 28 mins) When Billy makes his wish in his father's house, the neck of his shirt is buttoned up and the medallion strap is around his neck on top of his shirt. After Billy makes his wish, the neck of his shirt is open and the strap of the medallion is around Billy's neck inside his shirt.
