Prince Harry is set to star in a new Netflix documentary about the Paralympic Games.
The trailer for Rising Phoenix dropped today, and sees the Duke of Sussex discuss the power of sports.
“There isn’t anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport,” he states.
“Yes lives have been changed on the track, but lives are also being changed in the stands,” he added.
According to the synopsis: “Rising Phoenix tells the extraordinary story of the Paralympic Games.”
“From the rubble of World War II to the third biggest sporting event on the planet, the Paralympics sparked a global movement which continues to change the way the world thinks about disability, diversity & human potential.”
A spokesperson for Prince Harry added in a statement: “The Duke is proud to have been one of the people who contributed to this film, which is a unique and powerful documentary that hopes to change the way people view disability – and tell the incredible story of the Paralympics.”
The sports documentary will features several athletes including fencer Bebe Vio, archer Matt Stutzman, sprinter Jonnie Peacock, and wheelchair track and field star Tatyana McFadden among others.
Rising Phoenix hits the streaming platform on August 26th, directed by Peter Ettedgui and Ian Bonhôte.
“There isn’t anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport.”
