Queen of Katwe
Don’t Miss Queen of Katwe coming this month, read below!
Home audiences will cheer for Disney’s Queen of Katwe, which has earned widespread critical acclaim. Based on the vibrant true story of a young girl (Madina Nalwanga) from the streets of Uganda whose world 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. It is a remarkable story of perseverance against all odds that will leave viewers feeling humbled and inspired. According to director Mira Nair, “The triumph of the human spirit is not to weep for what we don’t have but to focus on what we do have and allow that to take us to a place we never imagined possible.” Disney’s heartwarming and triumphant tale arrives home on Digital HD on Jan. 10 and Blu-ray™ on Jan. 31
Follow your dreams and remember that the small one can become the big one in chess (but also in life). This one is a must watch and of course a tug at your heartstrings movie! I might have even shed a couple of tears during the preview and when I saw it in LA I cried like a baby! This film is beyond amazing and if you don’t believe me you should check out all of the clips I included below!!
