Queen of Katwe Trailer and Poster!

When I was a the D23 Expo last year, we learned about this movie and I have been waiting for it ever since. You all know I am a sucker for super heroes and action movies but sometimes I love these smaller, quieter movies that tell stories that inspire. Plus I LOVE Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo! 

“Queen of Katwe” is the colorful true story of a young girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. Directed by Mira Nair (“Monsoon Wedding”) from a screenplay by William Wheeler (“The Hoax”) based on the book by Tim Crothers, “Queen of Katwe” is produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher (“The Darjeeling Limited”) and John Carls (“Where the Wild Things Are”) with Will Weiske and Troy Buder serving as executive producers. The film stars Golden Globe® nominee David Oyelowo (“Selma”), Oscar® winner and Tony Award® nominee Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) and newcomer Madina Nalwanga.

Here is the new trailer!! This looks like an amazing movie!
