A documentary on Manchester United's fabled group of 1990s' youth academy graduates—dubbed "Fergie's Fledglings" at the time—will be released on December 1.

David Beckham confirmed the upcoming release of the movie, entitled The Class of '92, on his Facebook page on Monday.

The documentary sees a number of players—including Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers—reunite to discuss their experiences between 1992 and 1999, as they developed from a highly-touted group of teenage prospects into Champions League winners with United.

Others interviewed for the project include Zinedine Zidane, former Prime Minister Tony Blair and United legend Eric Cantona.

Beckham wrote on Facebook:

Very happy to announce the upcoming release of 'The Class of 92' documentary on December 2nd

It was fantastic to get back with the boys again and go through all those fantastic memories of our time at United. 

I hope you like it as much as we enjoyed making it.

The film will be released in cinemas around the United Kingdom on December 1 before being made available on DVD the next day.

“When we were approached to do this film, it gave me the chance to think back over all the events in not only my career but all of the lads involved," Ryan Giggs said, according to Screen Daily.

"Hopefully you’ll see how personal it is to us all—we’re still great mates and who would turn down the chance to make a movie with your best mates?”

The group of players have long been revered for the impressive careers they all embarked on and have occasionally spoken about their career paths. In 2012, the 1992 vintage received an award at the Professional Footballers' Association awards dinner.

The documentary is set to go into even more depth and looks likely to be an informative watch for all interested in the subject.
