Angels in the Outfield

Angels in the Outfield (known simply as Angels in some countries) is a 1994 Disney film remake of the 1951 film of the same name, starring Danny Glover, Tony Danza and Christopher Lloyd.

The movie also featured appearances from future stars Adrien Brody, Matthew McConaughey, and Neal McDonough.

Unlike the original, which focused on the Pittsburgh Pirates as the team in heavenly need, this movie focused on the California Angels, who started play ten years after the original movie came out. The movie did, however, make a connection to the Bucs by having its world premiere at the Pirates home at the time, Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh. The premiere actually drew one of the stadium's highest attendance figures, even with the stadium hosting two World Series championships for the Pirates and four Super Bowl-winning teams in the Pittsburgh Steelers, who also drew well regardless due to that team's rabid fanbase.
