Disney+ releases trailer for “Rise,” based on story of Antetokounmpo family

Disney has released the trailer for “Rise,” a film based on the real-life story of the Nigerian-Greek Antetokounmpo family that produced the first trio of brothers to become NBA champions in the history of the league – Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Laker Kostas Antetokounmpo – and their younger brother Alex.

The film, which debuts on June 24 exclusively on Disney+, tells the story of the Antetokounmpos’ parents, who, after emigrating from Nigeria to Athens, struggled to survive and provide for their five children.
