Manchester United’s famous Class of ’92 are about to have a feature film released by Universal Pictures that looks back at their rise from the academy to the pinnacle of European football with the treble of 1999.

It follows the story of Beckham, Butt, Scholes, Giggs and the Neville brothers from young friends in the academy and takes a look at how their friendships grew over that seven year period.

As well as extended interviews with all the players, there will be insight from the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Eric Cantona and Mani from The Stone Roses in a star studded cast.

The film should be a fantastic insight into how United’s most famous academy graduates felt at the time and speaking about the film, Beckham admitted it was fantastic to get back together.

“My time with these players at Manchester United were the most special in my career,” he said.

“We came from different backgrounds, grew up like a family playing together through the ranks, all wanting to be successful.

“In the end, what we achieved was beyond our wildest dreams. I loved making this film and reuniting back with the lads and talking openly about our time together.”

Giggs was equally as effusive towards the film and highlighted how it shows a personal side to the famous Class of ’92 that hasn’t really been seen before.

He said: “When we were approached to do this film, it gave me the chance to think back over all the events in not only my career but all of the lads involved.

“Hopefully you’ll see how personal it is to us all – we’re still great mates and who would turn down the chance to make a movie with your best mates?”

The Class of ’92 is going to be released in certain cinemas (unknown as of yet) from 1 December and will be available on DVD from 2 December.
