Queen of Katwe is based on the true story of Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi (newcomer Madina Nalwanga) and her quest to become a Grandmaster and her goals to rise above poverty-level upbringings in the slums of Katwe. It is not only the story of a mother that will do anything for her children, it is also the story of a young girl that will give everything to work for a better life for her family. The lesson – never give up your dreams!
Also, in the spirit of QUEEN OF KATWE, HSN is excited to partner with Soular Backpacks! For every Soular Backpack purchased, a solar-powered backpack is given to a child in Africa to help study at night. Currently, children are using kerosene lamps, which can cause health complications. Soular Backpacks use natural energy from the sun during a child’s walk home from school. Make a difference today: BUY A SOULAR BACKPACK AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Disney’s Queen of Katwe opens everywhere this Friday, September 20. Check out all of these amazing clips!
