Today, Disney+ released its newest Australian original in the form of Matildas: The World At Our Feet.
Matildas: The World At Our Feet opens with the announcement that Australia will host the World Cup in July.
To prepare for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, the Matildas embark on an ambitious schedule to take on the best in women’s football. First up are four-time World Cup champions, the US, in two games that will test the Aussies in friendly matches, and it’s the first test under new coach Tony Gustavsson.
The Matildas then travel to India as the hot favourites to win the 2022 Asian Cup, but face a do-or-die match in the quarter finals. It’s a tournament that would shape the Matildas, and the perfect start to the series.
Through the six 40-minute episodes, we get know more about some of the stars of Australian women’s soccer, including Captain Sam Kerr who fells a lot of responsibility for her team; new mum Katrina Gorry making her return to the game; Ellie Carpenter who goes from the high of a UEFA Women’s Champions League final to the low of maybe not completing a childhood dream; and a whole new era of Matildas as fresh faces get their chance to shine against Spain.
With unprecedented access, this documentary is a must for all fans of the Matildas as they prepare for a World Cup on home soil.
Matildas: The World At Our Feet is now streaming on Disney+,
