A new trailer has been released for the Batkid Begins documentary and can be watched above.

Batkid Begins follows young leukemia patient Miles Scott's journey of becoming the Dark Knight and San Francisco's transformation into Gotham City at the hands of the Make A Wish foundation and thousands of people.

The documentary features  interviews with participants in the event, including Eric Johnston, who played Batman, as well as Miles' mom and dad.

USA Today notes Miles, now age 6, is cancer-free and plays Little League and remains confident that he saved the city.

A Batkid movie starring Julia Roberts is also in development.


Batkid Begins is a dumentary 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.

Batkid Begins hits select theaters on June 26th.
