Here’s the first trailer for the new documentary looking back at the Make-A-Wish attempt to transform the city of San Fransisco into Gotham City for one day in November of 2013 in the most elaborate project the foundation has ever attempted to answer the request of a 5 year-old diagnosed with leukemia. A rousing success, it is estimated that perhaps as many as 12,000 took the streets of the city to urge Batkid’s adventures on while social media brought in support from around the world. The film is scheduled for release in select cities on June 26th.
