Mixson as his brother Fahmarr, plus Corinne Foxx, Luke Tennie, Matthew Glave, Hunter Sansone, Alex A.J. Gardner, and Amanda Warren. This looks as triumphant and inspiring as expected from Disney.

The film focuses on Ray McElrathbey (Jay Reeves), a young man facing various challenging experiences in his personal life. His hope and persistence assist his pursuits, defeats his trials, and allow him to play football through a scholarship at Clemson University; all while he struggles to raise and care for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr on campus away from their mother Tonya, who is unable to hold custody of them due to her struggles with drug addiction. Safety is directed by Oscar-nominated American filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, director of the films House Party, Boomerang, The Great White Hype, The Ladies Man, Serving Sara, and Marshall previously, as well as lots of other TV work, and a few short films, too. The screenplay is written by Nick Santora, with revisions by Randy McKinnon. Produced by Mark Ciardi. Disney will release Hudlin's Safety streaming exclusively on Disney+ starting December 11th this fall. Look good?
