Growing Up Story
In a press release, Disney explained Growing Up series as:
"The series uses narrative, experimental, and documentary filmmaking to follow one casted individual, ages 18-22, as they tell their story. They represent a wide range of lived experiences, giving audiences emotionally powerful narratives that offer an engaging look at teenage-hood and the diverse social, familial, and internal obstacles young people face on their path to self-discovery and acceptance. Each 30-minute episode features one young person, or 'hero,' and their experience growing up. Each episode is anchored by a deeply personal interview that allows our heroes to walk us through their childhood and teenage years. Alongside these interviews, creative cinematic reenactments help bring their major inflection points to life."
As mentioned, there will be a total of 10 episodes, each having a runtime of 30 minutes. Each episode also features a different director, with one of them directed by Brie Larson.
