Documentary About Greta Thunberg Will Be Released Next Year
A documentary following the rise of Greta Thunberg will premiere next year.
Deadline reports Hulu has picked up the streaming rights to the project but it's being produced by B-Reel Films and directed by Nathan Grossman
It will show how the Swedish teenager went from protesting in her country by herself to leading a global movement. A team has been following the 16-year-old ever since she started speaking up about climate change and organising school climate strikes.
The official synopsis reads: "In August 2018, Thunberg, a 15-year-old student in Sweden, starts a school strike for the climate. Her question for adults: if you don't care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school? Within months, her strike evolves into a global movement. The quiet teenage girl on the autism spectrum becomes a world-famous activist."
A release date hasn't been given yet but it is slated to drop next year.
There will certainly be a lot of material to work with considering Greta has spoken at the UN, met up with celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Arnold Schwarzenegger, sailed across the Atlantic Ocean twice, spoken at numerous rallies and events and been named TIME Magazine's Person of the Year.
And that's just been in the last few months.

She recently was embroiled in a small Twitter debate with a German train company after she posted a photo of her sitting on the floor because the carriage was 'overcrowded'.
The 16-year-old Swede, who eventually got upgraded to first class, shared a shot of herself sitting on the floor of a busy train travelling through the European country with the caption: "Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I'm finally on my way home!"
It appeared to have got underneath the skin of Deutsche Bahn (DB), the company that was operating the service.
They sent back a slightly snarky reply that read: "Dear #Greta, thank you for supporting us railroad workers in the fight against climate change! We were pleased that you were on the ICE 74 with us on Saturday. And with 100 percent green electricity.
"It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competent you were looked after by our team at your seat in first class."
Thunberg was quick to explain her position and attempted to diffuse the potential for argument. She responded quickly, adding: "Our train from Basel was taken out of traffic. So we sat on the floor on 2 different trains. After Göttingen I got a seat. This is no problem of course and I never said it was.
"Overcrowded trains is a great sign because it means the demand for train travel is high!"
