The synopsis for the programme reads: "The United Way is the legendary story of the Red Devils - an inspirational "love affair" for the ages.
"From their humblest of beginnings in England's industrial north at the turn of the 20th century, Manchester United gifted working men, women and children alike, the poor and the struggling, a new dream - a winning dream of hope, beauty and ambition.
"Presented by the peerless Eric Cantona and featuring stunning archive and never-seen-before footage, The United Way celebrates the birth and growth of a global phenomenon - a unifying club for the people, by the people."
The film shares Cantona's unique insights into United, taking audiences on a ride through the history and evolution of the club, and the social and cultural environment that shaped it.
Insight from the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Bryan Robson, Brian Kidd, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Teddy Sheringham, Nicky Butt, Peter Schmeichel, the late Tommy Docherty and many more interweave Cantona's story.
"Football has that power to change people's lives," says Beckham in the trailer. "Combine that with a city like Manchester... there's nothing more important."
The United Way will get a Blu-ray, DVD and download release on May 10th from Dazzler Media, before screening on Sky Documentaries and NOW from May 24th. Liverpool, Manchester City and Leeds fans might not tune in, but with a global fan base of millions, the film is sure to do big business amongst United supporters.
Cantona became synonymous with United after joining from Leeds in 1992. He helped them to four top-flgiht titles and two FA Cups, scoring 64 goals in 143 league appearances before hanging up his boots in 1997.
