With several professional sports now in full swing, there is a lot of content surrounding the games. When it comes to coverage of sports and sporting events, Disney+ has you covered. From ice skating to soccer, there are plenty of titles for your sports fix.
Here are some of our favourites:
An all-time favorite is “Remember the Titans”. This is much more than just a football movie. It tells the story of a high school football team that must learn to work together in a time of segregation and political unrest. Despite their differences, the teammates can come together for an unforgettable football season and a truly heartwarming story. Big names like Denzel Washington and Ryan Gosling star in this movie.
“The Game Plan” stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and centers on a selfish, self-absorbed professional football player who learns he has a daughter. It follows the ups and downs of both a football season and the process of learning to become parents. The film is a fun watch and provides some comic relief as both the child and the father get to know each other. This is just one of the films featuring Johnson. He can also be seen on Disney+ lending his voice to MoanaRace To Witch Mountainand recently Jungle cruise.
‘Big Shot’ stars John Stamos and is an episodic original offering on the Disney+ platform. There are now two seasons, with the second season premiering last month, October 2022. The story tells the audience about a private high school girls’ basketball team as they learn to work together and build trust.
‘Miracle’ tells the story of the 1980 US Olympic hockey team. In that era of the Olympics, the players were not professional athletes, but more recreational enthusiasts. It is heartwarming to relive the Winter Games through the young players on the team and how they learn to work together to win the coveted gold medal from the heavily favored Soviet team.
‘Ice Princess’ Michelle Trachtenberg stars as she learns about the art and craft of skating. What starts as a project for her turns into a true passion for the sport and an immersive journey to compete. It’s also a coming-of-age story as the main character discovers what makes her happy even if it’s not what her mother thinks should make her happy.
