News and Notes for Journey of My Heart
- This film was originally called Love on the Wings of Eagles.
- Journey of My Heart was filmed in and around Vancouver.
- According to Deck the Hallmark podcast, Journey of My Heart was produced by the same company that produced Chasing Waterfalls.
Have We Watched this Movie Before?
The storylines of Journey of My Heart and Chasing Waterfalls are so similar that Wendy texted Megan “This is Chasing Waterfalls with eagles.”
Why on Earth would Hallmark green light two movies within the same year that have almost identical stories? Sure, we can accept that almost all Hallmark movies follow the same formula but the same story? Instead of searching for secret waterfalls, our lead searches for a secret spot for eagles. Same landscape, same hunky tour guide, same geo-tag snafu.
Spoiler: Journey of My Heart was probably the worst Hallmark movie of the year.
