The Last Dance is a 2020 American sports documentary series. The documentary miniseries focuses on the 1997-97 Chicago Bulls. The series contains footage which has an all-access pass to the Bulls during the National Basketball Association season.
There was already a massive fervor generating for the documentary over 20 years in the making, but with the entire world quarantined, the anticipation swelled considerably. It was a conscious decision taken to air the documentary early, it was moved up from its originally scheduled June air date.
Jason Hehir is directing the project with producer Mike Tollin. Hehir was the director on The ’85 Bears 30 for 30 documentary and the Andre the Giant documentary by HBO.
The 10- part series will be shown in two back-to-back long episodes every Sunday for the next five weeks. The series, which will offer two fresh episodes every week, also packs some unseen footage from the 97-98 seasons. If anything, the duo of episodes released every week should serve for the near perfect weekend sports binge.
The Last Dance Documentary Trailer
On Sunday April 26th 2020, Episodes 3 and 4 of the Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance are going to drop and while there were hints that the ever-intriguing Dennis Rodman would be heavily featured, the latest trailer dropped by ESPN shows the Bulls’ primary rival will be featured: the Bad Boys Detroit Pistons.
The trailer shows Michael Jordan discussing that the Bulls have finally got over the slump and become a winning team. But even with the wins piling up in the regular season, the Pistons prove to be the true litmus test for the Bulls.
There will be a number of topics looked into in episodes 3 and 4, among them will be the late-80s Bulls turning into a consistently winning team, Michael Jordan’s strength and conditioning program and his need to administer pain in to counteract the Pistons Jordan rules.
The Last Dance Documentary Plot
The Last Dance documentary has a huge advantage in its favor. It has never seen before footage and anecdotes from Michael Jordan as well as his former teammates, coaches and friends. There is complete access to Jordan’s views and perspectives as well.
Jordan has gone out to say that the documentary might make him look like a bad person. That assures the audience that the content will be juicy and the interactions will have revelations. The audience is aware that Jordan has once punched Steve Kerr in the face once during practice. There could be such stories and more included.
The series is a fusion of both interviews and never released footage from the 1997-98 NBA season. This includes over 500 hours of complete accessible footage that was filmed and hereby used to create this 10 episode documentary series.
Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner and then head of NBA Entertainment, has gone on record to say that Michael Jordan agreed to filming only if the footage was used post taking his direct permission. For years Jordan refused to make the footage public but finally agreed in 2016 to a documentary proposal from Mike Tollin.
The Last Dance Documentary Cast
A documentary involves so much more than one can imagine. Intricate details have to be woven together to put across reality to the audience. The Last Dance is a documentary which is a miniseries.
It features both interviews and never seen before footage. The makers of The Last Dance had a test in hand to bring together people who have lived the 1997-98 NBA season. Their well thought of research has paid off as they managed to assimilate the best.
