True Spirit: Release Date, Trailer, Plot, Cast, and Everything We Know So Far

Jessica Watson returned to land on May 15, 2010, after being alone on a small boat for 210 days. The ship was only 33 feet long. She had gone over 22,000 nautical miles, which was a big deal. A task like that would make anyone feel overwhelmed and scared, but she did it when she was only 16. She didn’t just get up and leave like that, of course. She spent years getting ready and then falling on her plans. She didn’t give up, which is impressive in and of itself, given how hard things were for her.

She wrote a book about her experiences and successes. The book title is True Spirit: The Aussie Girl Who Took the World, and the upcoming Netflix movie True Spirit is based on it. Watching this young woman from Australia become the youngest person ever to go around the world without stopping is inspiring. Good movies have good stories at their core. Here’s what we know so far about the film.

In the upcoming biopic True Spirit, Teagan Croft, who is known for her role on Titans, plays Jessica Watson. We have everything you need about True Spirit, including the plot, cast, trailer, first-look photos, and Netflix release date in February 2023.

True Spirit: The Plot

In the movie, we follow Jessica Watson, 16 years old. She wants something. She wants to take her small boat around the world. How likely is it that her family will agree with this plan? And even if she manages to get them to trust her, should the authorities stand by and let a teenager put herself in danger and possibly die? Also, if Jessica finally makes it to the sea, will she be able to stay alive? How will she be better than all the other people, ships, and boats full of experienced sailors the sea has taken? True Spirit, a movie on Netflix, will answer all of these questions.
