When will Thai Cave Rescue be premiere?
Netflix’s long awaited series about the miraculous 2018 cave rescue of Thailand’s Wild Boars youth soccer team has finally been revealed.
The famous six-episode limited one about Thai Cave Rescue will hit the expected streaming service worldwide on Sept. 22.
The series was filmed completely in Thailand and seeks to show the real-life story of the 12 young Thai soccer players and their 25-year-old coach. This happened after they became stuck in a vast underground cave complex near the Myanmar border.
The story from the series starts from the side of the boys themselves and the experiences of their families. It also included the vast global team that came together to save them.
The story of Thai Cave Rescue is one of several screen projects to tackle the sensational story.
You will recall that Netflix together with SK Global Entertainment came together to acquire the rights to the soccer team’s story back in 2019. This came after fierce competition to bring the miraculous rescue to screen by most movies production firms.
Thai Cave Rescue be premiere: meet the cast
The cast is being led by Papangkorn “Beam” Lerkchaleampote as Coach Eak, Thaneth “Ek” Warakulnukroh as Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn, and Urassaya “Yaya” Sperbund and Manatsanun “Donut” Phanlerdwongsakul as Kelly and Pim — fictional representatives of the real-world hydraulic engineers and park rangers that made the incredible rescue possible.
It is intersting to note that Supakorn “Tok” Kitsuwan also joins the cast as former Navy SEAL diver Saman “Ja Sam” Gunan, while Bloom Varin plays army doctor Colonel Bhak Loharjun.
This is what Baz Poonpiriya said in a statement:
“Thai Cave Rescue is the first opportunity for audiences worldwide to see the Tham Luang story in a new and more emotional light — centering the perspectives of the 12 Wild Boars, Coach Eak, and heroes like Saman “Ja Sam” Gunan, whose lives beyond the operation remain largely outside the public spotlight,”.
“I am very proud to have this opportunity to tell the stories behind the faces and names we have come to know well over the course of this world-famous rescue operation.”
Added Gunn: “For us, Thai Cave Rescue is ultimately a story about family and what we decide family should be. From the boys’ own parents and guardians to thousands of local and international rescuers joining the mission, this was the entire world coming together as one big family. We intended for the show to cover not just the rescue operation but also what the Wild Boars went through inside the cave, and we believe our focus on achieving authenticity – from characters and languages to locations and emotions – will shine through and make an impact on viewers worldwide through Netflix.”
