Check out the brilliant new trailer below for DAVID OYELOWO‘s latest film, Queen Of Katwe.
Directed by Mira Nair and produced by Disney, Queen Of Katwe is the colourful true story of a young girl Phiona (played by Madina Nalwanga) selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda. Her 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.
DAVID stars as Robert Katende, a soccer player turned missionary who hopes to empower the local youth by teaching them chess. Recognizing Phiona’s natural aptitude for the game and the fighting spirit she’s inherited from her mother (played by Lupita Nyong’o), Katende begins to mentor her.
Queen of Katwe will open in US cinemas on September 23, 2016. We’ll let you know the UK release date as soon as we have it.
