3 Reasons to Watch 'Safety' on Disney Plus & Featurette

By 12/11/2020 09:09:00 PM ,

Disney+ has released the behind-the-scenes featurette for SAFETY, which is now streaming exclusively. I was able to screen 'Safety' before it's public release and think it's an inspiring film that families will enjoy.

Note: This post is in partnership with Disney+, who invited me to the online screening. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

My Review

Overall I can recommend watching SAFETY just based on it's a real life story. We all enjoy watching how someone, who's not a made up character, deals with bad situation and does better.

But also I think how the story was re-told has it own charm and enjoyment. Ray and Fahmarr really touch our hearts beyond being real characters, they are representations of brothers love and hope for a better future.

While the story of 'Safety' has a lot of messages that can inspire families, for me there was three areas that really touched my heart. I think these 3 areas will make 'Safety' a must see for families.

3 Reasons to Watch 'Safety' on Disney+


Sibling Humor

The main storyline of 'Safety' is about the connection between brothers. The scenes between Ray and his younger brother Fahmarr are touching but also humorous. Families will enjoy watching Ray try to find ways to sneak his bother into school or hide him from friends and teammates.

The banter between brothers is so relatable. If you have a sibling, then you know how much you can love them, while finding them annoying at the same time.

Community Support

During the film, Ray tries to handle everything from school, football and care for his brother on his own. But his friends and community are there for him. He just has to learn to open up to them.

Watching Ray learn how to trust others and let his community support him is a good reminder that we're not alone. There are people around us who care and can support us.

We Can Overcome

Ray and Fahmarr come from a background that would keep them as a negative statistic. But they both want to change that and have something better. It's a struggle to get out of that but they did it.

That's a great reminder that we can choose the direction of our lives. Not because you started at a bad point means you have to remain there. Things can get better if you choose and work towards that.

“Safety” is stream exclusively on Disney+ on Friday, December 11, 2020.


Aided by his teammates and the Clemson community, he succeeds on the field while simultaneously raising and caring for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr.

The film stars Jay Reeves (“All American,” “The Tax Collector”) as Ray and newcomer Thaddeus J. Mixson as Fahmarr along with Corinne Foxx, Matthew Glave, Hunter Sansone, Amanda Warren, Miles Burris, Isaac Bell, Elijah Bell and James Badge Dale.

Directors Hudlin said, “Safety” is a movie about brotherhood and coming together for the greater good, which is a message our society needs right now. It’s the story of a young man stuck in a situation where failure is not an option.

Through sheer force of will, he does the impossible, which inspires the whole community around him to do the same. It’s a movie I can’t wait to watch with my family on Disney+, and for families everywhere to do the same.”

“Safety” is directed by Reginald Hudlin (“Marshall”) and produced by Mark Ciardi, p.g.a. (“Secretariat,” “Miracle”) and Gordon Gray (“Million Dollar Arm,” ”The Rookie”) with a screenplay written by Nick Santora (“The Most Dangerous Game,” “The Fugitive”). Douglas S. Jones and Campbell McIinnis served as executive producers.
