We are thrilled to announce a new feature-length documentary about FIRST® coming soon to Disney+ titled More Than Robots.
Directed by Gillian Jacobs, “More Than Robots” chronicles the 2020 FIRST® Robotics Competition season as four high school robotics teams compete in INFINITE RECHARGESM and are challenged to embrace problem-solving, creativity and innovation to build a robot and compete in a competition unlike any other.
With the skill and hope that their unique robot design propels them to the coveted global championship, teams must overcome challenges, from having limited resources within their community to putting everything on hold because of a world-wide pandemic. With the world at a standstill, these students are tested to find the hero in themselves and use their unique skills to be forces for good, proving that the FIRST community is much More Than RobotsSM.
“More Than Robots” will premiere at the world-renowned SXSW (South by Southwest) Film Festival on March 14 and stream exclusively on Disney+ starting Friday, March 18.
