DISNEY Developing Live-Action Movie about African Princess ‘Sade’

Disney’s next film will feature an African princess, for the first time ever.

The live-action film, “Sadé,” will follow the young princess as she tried to save her kingdom’s people using magic powers.

“Disney as a corporate entity has been at the forefront in recent years of the effort to center diversity and inclusion in their business operations,” said Darnell Hunt, Director of UCLA’s Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies. “They understand where the market is and where the market is going, and they’re trying to produce original programming that reflect those values.”

Almost 10 years ago, Disney released “The Princess and the Frog,” which featured a black princess, Tiana, for the first time.
