Prince Harry is making his Netflix debut in just a few weeks. The Duke of Sussex is part of the new upcoming documentary Rising Phoenix which tells the story of the Paralympics.

"The Duke is proud to have been one of the people contributed to this film, which is a unique and powerful documentary that hopes to change the way people view disability — and tell the incredible story of the Paralympics," a spokesperson for Prince Harry said about the appearance.

In a newly released trailer, the Duke can be seen sitting on a green couch in a big open warehouse. "There isn’t anything else in the world that can bring you back from the darkest places than sport," he says in the clip.

According to People, the film will feature, Bebe Vio (Italy), Ellie Cole (Australia), Jean-Baptiste Alaize (France), Matt Stutzman (USA), Jonnie Peacock (UK), Cui Zhe (China), Ryley Batt (Australia), Ntando Mahlangu (South Africa) and Tatyana McFadden (USA).

Prince Harry's connection to the Paralympics comes from his Invictus Games which is a competition for wounded veterans that he has been running since 2014.
