Is Facing Giants Based on a true story?
No, Facing The Giants is not based on a true story but that doesn’t mean the story is imaginary. Neither the film is completely fictional nor it’s 100% real.
However, various events and characters shown in the film were actually inspired by real-life stories of people who overcame great odds in their life like Ray Lewis, Joey Porter, London Fletcher, Drew Brees, and Brian Dawkins.
For example, the story of the football team’s “miracle” season was based on a real-life team that won a championship despite being told that they had no chance of success.
