According to Deadline, a release date has been set by Netflix for the limited series Thai Cave Rescue. The series is based on the actual rescue effort of the Wild Boars soccer team’s twelve players and coach in 2018; heavy rain caused the squad to become stranded in the Tham Luang caverns, requiring a significant international rescue mission that garnered media attention worldwide.
The television show, which was shot all around Thailand, including in the Tham Luang tunnels, will include the lads’ point of view. The concept for Thai Cave Rescue was developed by former Survivor contestants Michael Russell Gunn and Dana Ledoux Miller.
Thai director Baz Poonpiriya and Thai-American director Kevin Tancharoen are the film’s producers. Poonpiriya described the project as “the first opportunity for viewers globally to see the Tham Luang narrative in a new and more emotive light.” It puts a focus on the viewpoints of the 12 Wild Boars, Coach Eak, and heroes like Saman “Ja Sam” Gunan, whose lives outside of the operation are mainly hidden from view.

Heavy downpours, an impending storm, and the herd of wild boars making their way to the caves are all depicted in the opening scene of the film, which sets the scene for everything that went wrong on that fateful day in 2018. It establishes water and weather as two opponents for the rescue team and depicts the panic that breaks out once the party notices the water filling the cave.
