Entertainment Desk August 14, 2020

After Meghan Markle honoured elephants on Disney+, Prince Harry is coming on Netflix for a cause, reported EOnline.

Turns out the former Duke of Sussex will appear in a new documentary, Rising Phoenix, which tells the story of the Paralympic Games and the athletes who compete in them each Olympic year.

Prince Harry is the founder of the Invictus Games – a sporting event for the wounded, injured and sick armed services veterans. His appearance is highlighted in the new trailer for the documentary. 

"There isn't anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport," he says. But of course, the Prince isn't the star here.

The doc is all about the athletes and the way the Paralympics sparked a movement designed to "change the way the world thinks about disability, diversity, and human potential," per the Netflix description.

The film features paralympic athletes from around the world, including Bebe Vio of Italy, Ellie Cole and Ryley Batt of Australia, Jean-Baptiste Alaize of France, Matt Stuzman and Tatyana McFadden of the United States, Jonnie Peacock of the UK, Cui Zhe of China and Ntando Mahlangu of South Africa. McFadden also serves as a producer on the film. 

Aside from Prince Harry, there are also interviews with Sir Phillip Craven, former president of the International Paralympics Committee and the IPC's current president Andrew Parsons.
