One June 9, Nike will be launching the 'Last Game' animated soccer film, which will cap off a quartet of short films released in recent weeks featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Each of the clips exist in a surreal animated film world created by Nike, Passion Pictures and the Wieden + Kennedy ad agency. The film tells the tale of a world where the sport of soccer has become too safe and measured and has lost its beauty and element of risk-taking. Only the world's greatest and most exciting, bold players -- like Ronaldo, Neymar and Ibrahimovic -- can save the game from extinction.

The film will convey the idea that predictability, caution and uniformity should never rule the roost when it comes to soccer, since the true heart and soul of the sport involves creativity, risk-taking and the bravery to try something new.
