What To Watch On Disney+ | Best Sports Films
With multiple professional sports in full swing now, there is a lot of content around the games. When it comes to the portrayal of sports and sporting events, Disney+ has you covered. From ice skating to football, there are many titles for your sports fix.
Here are a few of our favorites:
An all-time favorite is “Remember The Titans”. This is way more than just a football movie. It tells the story of a high school football team that must learn to work together during the time of segregation and political turmoil. Despite their differences, the teammates are able to come together for an unforgettable football season and a truly heartwarming story. Big names such as Denzel Washington and Ryan Gosling star in this film.
“The Game Plan” stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and centers on a selfish, self-absorbed professional football player that learns he has a daughter. It follows the ups and downs of both a football season as well as the process of learning how to be a parent. The film is a fun watch and provides some comic relief as both the kid and father get to know each other. This is just one of the films that features Johnson. He can also be seen on Disney+ lending his voice to Moana, Race To Witch Mountain, and, 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’ recounts the story of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team. In that era of the Olympics, the players were not professional athletes but more so recreational enthusiasts. It is heartwarming to relive the winter games through the young players on the team and how they learn to work together in order to win the coveted gold medal from the highly favored Soviet team.
‘Ice Princess’ stars Michelle Trachtenberg as she learns about the art and craft of ice skating. What starts out as a project for her turns into a true passion for the sport and an immersive journey to compete. It is also a coming-of-age story as the main character discovers what makes her happy even if it is not what her mother thinks should make her happy.
