The Saudi-American film, “The Arabian Warrior,” is set to debut on Thursday on MBC’s Shahid VIP online streaming service, according to a press release.
The drama centers around Anmar, a Saudi Arabian student studying in the US as his dreams of becoming a professional US football player clash with his conservative father, who threatens to send him back home.
To make matters worse, Anmar must also deal with racist teammates.
British-Arab actor Amir el-Masry plays the lead role of Anmar Almadi in the film, which was directed by Aymen Khoja.
The film was initially released in cinemas across the Middle East on March 15, 2018.
Shahid VIP has countless exclusive original Arabic shows and movies, and it also streams the latest English-language movies and productions.
In addition to “The Arabian Warrior,” Natalie Portman’s “Lucy in the Sky” will be released this month on Shahid, as well as Emily Blunt’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” along with many other movies and TV series.
