Manchester United and Disney+ in Talks For New Documentary

Disney is reportedly in talks with the premier league club Manchester United to create new documentaries about the club.  The multi-million dollar deal would feature the biggest soccer club in England.

According to The Athletic, The play will spotlight the club’s triumphant era led by the esteemed coach Sir Alex Ferguson, spanning 26 years during which Manchester United secured an impressive 38 trophies. Among these accolades were 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies, and five FA Cups.

Additionally, the agreement would encompass significant interview time with Ferguson, now 82 years old. Manchester United would grant access to club archive footage and insights from club ambassadors like former captain Bryan Robson and iconic goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel. Their contributions would illuminate the secrets behind United’s success under Ferguson. Formal consent from Ferguson and his former players would be required for the project, which is currently in its conceptual phase. United would likely maintain editorial control over the project, as is customary for documentaries involving European football clubs.

Disney+ has already had successful documentaries about British Football including Welcome To Wrexham, Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, and Save Our Squad.”
