Walt Disney Studios Producing ‘Sadé’ a Live-Action African Princess Film

According to Deadline, the Walt Disney Studios is developing Sadé, the story of an African Princess who must fight off a “mysterious evil force” using her recently learned “magical warrior powers.” Sadé is joined by the prince during her quest to save the kingdom, and during their journey, she learns “what makes her special.”

The film is an original concept created by Ola Shokunbi and Lindsey Reed Palmer. Rick Famuyiwa who directed Dope will produce the film with Scott Falconer acting as executive producer. The film has not yet found a director.

Sadé is still in an early development phase, so details are limited. As we find out more about the film we will report on them immediately.
