NickSports To Premiere New Movie "Soul Surfer" On Friday 9th June 2017

Nicktoons USA's NickSports TV programming block will premiere the popular movie Soul Surfer on Friday 9th June 2017 at 9:00pm ET/PT!

Soul Surfer (2011) is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany's feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others.

The film is based on the 2004 autobiography Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board by Bethany Hamilton about her life as a surfer after a shark attack and her recovery.

Following the films debut, NickSports will encore Soul Surfer the same evening at 12:00am ET/PT.
