Xbox honors “RISE” with Xbox Series S Travel Kit

For the Xbox Series, Microsoft just unveiled a new travel kit. The customized travel kit containing an Xbox Series S, a portable screen, an Xbox Wireless Headset, and a travel bag has been designed by Xbox and Disney to celebrate the recently released movie RISE. Fans from around the globe can now enter to win one of these unique UpSpec Gaming Kits.

During the launch event of the new Disney film Rise, Xbox and Disney had invited the Boys and Girls Club of San Fernando Valley to attend, where they were allowed not only to see the new movie but also to receive RISE customized travel cases for on-the-go gaming to support their aspirations, which were sparked by the uplifting message of the brand-new film.

RISE – the Origin Story of the Antetokounmpo Brothers

The inspiring true account of the first-ever trio of brothers to win an NBA championship is depicted in “RISE.” Beginning with young brothers growing up in Greece, this brand-new live-action movie, which premiered on June 24 exclusively on Disney+, follows the Antetokounmpo family’s undying faith and resiliency in the face of sometimes overwhelming challenges.

But at its core, it’s a universal tale of familial love, hope, hardships, dreams, victories, and losses. The story of the Greek-Nigerian Antetokounmpo brothers, who grew up to be NBA stars, is told in the worthy film Rise.

The Antetokounmpos are the first family in NBA history to have three brothers who have won championships. In the 2020–21 season, Giannis, Thanasis, and Kostas contributed to the Milwaukee Bucks winning their first championship in 50 years.

Kostas was also a part of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2019–2020 championship squad. Another brother Alex recently participated in the NBA G League. Dayo Okeniyi, Yetide Badaki, Ral Agada, Manish Dayal, Taylor Nichols, and Uche Agada are among the cast members of “The Rise.” The movie was written by Arash Amel, produced by Bernie Goldmann & directed by Akin Omotoso.

The executive producers were Douglas S. Jones and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a forward for the Milwaukee Bucks and a two-time league MVP, worked as an executive producer.

He has ensured the movie by Nigerian filmmaker – Akin Omotoso & screenwriter Arash Amel was accurate and told the full story of his family, starting with their parents’ flight from their native Nigeria in search of what they hoped would be a better life.

A never seen tale

The Antetokounmpo family’s narrative is unlike anything that audiences have ever seen. The story elucidates that the ability to make your dreams come true exists, no matter how lofty they may be!

The travel kit, which is the result of Xbox and Disney collaborating, is heavily influenced by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who served as the inspiration for Disney’s most recent motion picture. It highlights many aspects of his Greek culture, such as Greek-inspired patterns based on the piercing blue and white of the nation’s calm seas.

At the launch event, the Boys & Girls Club members of San Fernando Valley were also invited. They were also given “Rise” Upspec Gaming Kits for on-the-go gaming to support their ambitions encouraged by the powerful message from the new film.

Try to watch the film chronicling Giannis & the Antetokounmpo family’s Rise to prominence as one of the first and specific people. You can also win the new Travel Kit by keeping updated with Xbox!
