Disney has announced that “Like Mike” and its sequel, will be coming to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 7th January 2022.
In the first film, fourteen-year-old, hoops-loving Calvin Cambridge has a dream: to be a famous basketball player and mix it up with the NBA’s greatest. In a game dominated by giants with unparalleled athletic abilities, Calvin’s diminutive stature and limited skills make this a far-off fantasy… or is it?
While in the sequel, get those sneakers on tight, because the action’s moving out of the Arena and onto the Street! In this slam-dunk sequel to the hit film Like Mike, those legendary, magical high-tops find their way into the eager young hands of a pint-sized basketballer who dreams of rising to the top of the fast, fun and no-holds-barred world of high-stakes “Streetball!” Die-hard hoops fan Jerome Jenkins Junior gets no respect at the local court, because he’s too young, too slow, and worst of all – too short. But when he puts on a mysterious pair of sneakers, he’s suddenly able to dribble, drive, and dunk like a champ! Jerome’s rise to streetball fame seems unstoppable! But when it threatens to alienate his family and friends, Jerome realizes there’s a high price to pay to be crowned the King of Concrete!
