Trivia & Production Notes
- This project is the first to be authorized by King's estate and gives the producers the right to utilize King's intellectual property, including his "I Have a Dream" speech.
- As DreamWorks principal Steven Spielberg explains, "I wouldn't call it a biopic, it's more a story of King and the movement and also about how his admiration for Mahatma Gandhi helped to shape his moral core."
