Underdog stories and sports have crossed over for decades. Rocky, The Little Giants, The Waterboy, Bend It Like Beckham, The Blind Side and even Kung Fu Panda, follow unassuming protagonists who are dismissed by their peers as they go on journeys of self-discovery and come out on top, proving themselves to their doubters. Now tackling this classic genre are writer and director Jingyi Shao, making his feature film directorial debut, and rising star Bloom Li, in the hilarious and heartfelt semi-autobiographical sports comedy film Chang Can Dunk, coming to Disney+ March 10th.
