movie facts

There were originally plans for a sequel, but ostensibly since the first one didn't perform well, those plans were scrapped. The whole idea for the movie came from a McDonald's ad in the early 90s. Steven Spielberg enjoyed the ad and so got a script made for the movie. The two peewee teams, the Little Giant's and the Cowboys are based off the NFL teams of similar names, and similar themes of underdog team and championship team.
