Video: Hurling/American football mash up created in new Disney movie

Hurling meets American football with medieval extras.

Hurling has long been one of the most revered sports of the playing field, but Disney has given it a remake and it's terrifying.

The movie Descendants, made by Disney, is set in the magical kingdom of Auradon and the movie sees the offspring of evil villains brought to prep school with the royal children of the kingdom.

Among other activities at the school is this game which looks a lot like hurling but with a few changes.

For one thing there are Canons that fire at the players and the players are armed with American football helmets and pads as well as shields.

But the game centres around the hurling theme with everyone carrying standard hurleys and pucking around a leather ball.

It's a bizarre sport that would never work in real life, but at the same time it's a bit intriguing to watch.

Check out this crazy mash-up.
