Would You Watch An African Fairy-tale Movie Produced By Disney?
Africa is finally getting its own Disney princess in a live-action fairy tale film.
Titled “Sadé,” the movie will be produced by Nigerian-American born director, Rick Famuyiwa for Disney pictures.
The dream became reality after the multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate, bought a pitch written by another Nigerian Ola Shokunbi, and Lindsey Reed Palmer.
The movie is about a young African princess named “Sadé,” who accepts her newly discovered magical powers to protect her kingdom from the threat of a mysterious evil force.
While a director has not been named to helm the movie, Sadé may not be unconnected to the tremendous success of another movie produced by the company- Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’.
Black Panther, which is also set in the fictional African country of Wakanda, grossed about $1.35 billion from worldwide box offices.
