Today Disney released the trailer for the new movie “Rise”. The movie is based off Milwaukee Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo and his family during their journey from Greece to the NBA.
Sons. Brothers. A family of champions 🏆

Uche Agada will star in the movie as the two-time MVP. The movie will follow him and his brothers through their early years in Greece. Not only did Antetokounmpo make it to the NBA against all odds but two of his brothers did as well. Kostas and Thanasis have both won NBA titles in their career.
The trailer ends emphatically with Antetokounmpo in a meeting and is asked if he knows anything about Milwaukee to which he responds, “No sir, but I would love to learn.”
Antetokounmpo was drafted with the No. 15 pick in the 2013 NBA draft. He has since been named MVP twice, Defensive Player of the Year once and has made six All Star teams. He also was named Finals MVP in 2021 when he led the Bucks to an NBA title…. and it’s just the beginning.
