Marshall’s films weren’t just commercially successful; Its popularity only increased when younger generations saw Tom Hanks famously shout, “There’s no crying in baseball!” The film deals with references to real-life soccer players, but the new series focuses more on the mosaic of the women who make up the All-American Women’s professional league. Graham told The Wrap:
“Our starting place wasn’t ‘let’s remake this movie’ in the way that the kind of reboot culture is now in Hollywood. We’ve actually looked at the stories underneath it and seen it. that there’s a much bigger story here than in fact the story is about an entire generation of women who want to play football and includes characters that are the foundation of Max’s personality.”
Graham mentions women who are truly pioneers in Black League like Toni Stone and Mamie Johnson, who inspired the creation of Maxine “Max” Chapman (Chanté Adams), who has an arm like a cannon, but her attempt to join the AAGPBL doesn’t merge. hindered by the color of her skin. “League” series writer Desta Tedros Reff told The Wrap:
“I think some people don’t realize that the movie is based on Real American Girls and real Rockford Peaches. So it’s like stepping back, stepping into that history and realizing how many stories there are yet to come. being told and now seeing the opportunity to really step in and widen that lens with a feeling that I think the movie is transformative and captivating – that’s what fun.”
Amazon’s “A League of Their Own” will go even further into its history with a second season, currently under development.
