Disney, for the past several years, have made live-action movies featuring some of the greatest fairy tales and stories; Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, the list goes on. And now it’s been reported that a new live-action film is in the works featuring the story of an African princess named Sade. Um…AWESOME!
Here’s the current synopsis: Sadé centers on a young adult African girl named Sadé who, when her kingdom is threatened by a mysterious evil force, accepts her newly discovered magical warrior powers to protect herself and her people. With the help of the kingdom’s prince, Sadé embarks on an adventure that will allow her to embrace what makes her special and save the kingdom.
As of right now, Rick Famuyiwa (The Mandalorian) is set to produce the film. Sounds amazing, right?
After Black Panther‘s surprising success it seems that Disney is looking to find more ways to incorporate stories of black heroes and heroines into their various franchises. I honestly couldn’t be more excited to hear this news. This is great news to hear and I hope to hear more about it in the coming years.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
