The Toronto Raptors’ remarkable run to the NBA Finals had a Hollywood ending, so it should come as no surprise that someone made a movie about it.

An 80-minute film (plus bonus features) titled simply 2019 NBA Champions: Toronto Raptors has been produced by NBA Entertainment. The film takes fans through the entire journey, from training camp in Vancouver through to the clinching game in Oakland.

“The film offers exclusive behind-the-scenes access, interviews, commentary, and never-before-seen footage that takes fans through the triumphant 2018-19 season filled with hard-fought battles, bold trades, and a captivating collection of players from around the globe determined to bring the Larry O’Brien Trophy to Toronto for the first time ever,” say the filmmakers in a media release.

The film will be available on October 22, the same day the Raptors open the 2019-20 regular season at home to the New Orleans Pelicans.

It’ll be available for purchase in Blu-ray Combo, DVD, and digital at Walmart, Sunrise Records, Best Buy, the NBA Store, and Amazon.

Here’s the official trailer:
