The Batkid documentary about five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott's transformation into the Dark Knight now has a release date.

Following a crowd-sourcing fundraising campaign, Batkid Begins will be released in select theaters on June 26th.


Batkid Begins is a documentary that takes you back to November 15th, 2013, the day San Francisco turned into Gotham City, and the day the internet was nice. More than a billion people took to social media to cheer on BatKid, even President Obama! In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 Billion people on Twitter and Instagram. This wish and this little caped crusader resonated with so many people, including us, and we wanted to find out why.

A Batkid movie starring Julia Roberts is also in development.
