Award-winning director and vegan environmentalist James Cameron’s new documentary, The Game Changers, will highlight a broad range of plant-based athletes, soldiers, and cultural icons to show that nobody needs animal products to thrive.

Award-winning director and vegan environmentalist James Cameron has executively produced new vegan documentary called The Game Changers.

The film is a collaboration between Cameron, director Louis Psihoyos (who also directed Oscar-winning Japanese dolphin slaughter documentary The Cove), and mixed martial arts champion James Wilks.

According to the film’s website, the film will focus on: “From the UFC Octagon in Las Vegas and the anthropology lab at Dartmouth, to a strongman gym in Berlin and the bushlands of Zimbabwe, The Game Changers will introduce the world to elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes—each on a mission to create a seismic shift in the way we eat and live.”


The Game Changers will feature a wide array of elite athletes, special operations soldiers, scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes who are all thriving on a plant-based diet.

“The world’s strongest guy is a vegan,” Psihoyos said. “The world’s fastest guy, Carl Lewis, was the first to break 10 seconds, and he did it when he was a vegan. We’re trying to dispel the myth that you need protein from animals to become a real man.”

thriving on a plant-based diet.


Plant-based physician Dr. Greger, who recently sat down with Jeff Morgan of YouTube’s Guilt Free TV to discuss health, nutrition, has had an exclusive early viewing of the film, and assured Morgan that it would ‘rock his world’. He is clearly impressed with the new documentary, adding: “This is the best plant-based documentary in human history.


In recent years, Cameron has become an avid advocate for veganism and appears alongside actor Samuel L. Jackson in Eating You Alive—a new documentary that focuses on the adverse health effects of consuming animal products.

In a recent interview with Deadline magazine, Cameron discussed the misconception that a diet full of meat will make you strong, saying: “The science shows completely the opposite, that it’s actually really bad for you in almost every way, reduces your performance and that you can achieve the same kind of strength and performance levels and go beyond with plant fuel.”
