Disney Picks Up ‘Sadé’, A Live-Action African Princess Movie


Disney has acquired the rights to Sadé, a new live-action project featuring an African princess as the protagonist.

From Animation Magazine…

The story by Ola Shokunbi and Lindsey Reed Palmer (who will co-write the screenplay) centers on Sadé, a girl who must embrace her newly discovered magic powers to protect her kingdom from a mysterious, evil force, with the help of the local prince.

Rick Famuyiwa (director of Dope and The Wood) and Scott Falconer (production designer for Dope and The Chi) will exec produce through their production banner Verse.

The announcement comes months after Black Panther destroyed box office records, making a good financial case for more Afrocentric fantasy films.

No director has been attached to the project, and details are sparse.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
