Disney has released a new behind-the-scenes feature from the upcoming Searchlight Pictures film, “Next Goal Win”, which follows the American Samoa soccer team, infamous for their brutal 31-0 FIFA loss in 2001. With the World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around in this heartfelt underdog comedy.
Check out the featurette below:
“Next Goal Wins” is directed by Academy Award Winner Taika Waititi, who has previously worked on “Jojo Rabbit”, and “Thor: Ragnarok”. It stars Michael Fassbender, Elisabeth Moss, Oscar Kightley, Uli Latukefu, Rachel House, Kaimana, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Chris Alosio, Taika Waititi, Will Arnett, and Rhys Darby.
The film is out now in cinemas in the US and Canada. It will be released in the UK and Australia on Boxing Day. We should expect to see the film released on Disney+ in early 2024.
