Soul Surfer is the upcoming flick from Disney, that tells the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and will to succeed. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid.
I’m posting this half to give you guys a look at the trailer & half because this film is nostalgia-central for me, it reminds me so much of that time I was bitten by a shark…no, wait, that’s not right…Oh yeah, it was because Bethany Hamilton was literally trotted out for an interview every three weeks in Sugar and Bliss and Seventeen & all those other teen magazines I read when I was 12 (because I was so damn precocious & desperately wanted to know what kind of meerkat I was or whatever the quiz of the fortnight was.)
The trailer basically gives away the entire film, unless there’s a surprise at the end & Jaws comes back for the main course, but it should be nice one for younger girls. Soul Surfer is released on September 23.
