Disney+ Debuts the Trailer for ‘Rise’

    Disney has just released a new trailer for the upcoming Disney+ exclusive film Rise. The film is set to be released on June 24 and will tell the extraordinary but true story of Giannis, Thanasis, and Alex Antetokounmpo, three brothers who endured impossible odds to achieve success in the NBA.

    Giannis and Thanasis both play for the Milwaukee Bucks and are 2021 world champions, and their brother Kostas, won the title in 2020 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Back in February, Giannis Antetokounmpo and his family visited Walt Disney Studios to watch an early cut of the movie about their journey.

    “Cannot wait to share it with the world,” Antetokounmpo tweeted then along with a picture of him with his mom, Veronica, and his brother Thanasis.

    Uche Agada plays Giannis, while Jaden Osimuwa stars as Kostas and Ral Agada stars as Thanasis. The film was directed by Akin Omotoso, written by Arash Amel, and produced by Bernie Goldmann. Giannis and Douglas S. Jones serve as the executive producers.
