This guide to “12 Mighty Orphans” filming locations is written by one of the film’s associate producers, guest blogger Anne Fleitas.  Fans of the film can enjoy touring the real-life locations in Fort Worth at their leisure.   This sports film, starring Luke Wilson, Vinessa Shaw, Wayne Knight, Martin Sheen and Robert Duvall, tells the true story of the Mighty Mites, the football team of a Fort Worth orphanage who, during the Great Depression, went from playing without shoes--or even a football--to playing for the Texas State Championships. We always knew we wanted to shoot in Fort Worth, where the true story took place.
