Disney is developing a fairytale film “Sade,” centered on the story of an African princess.

The movie will be based on a pitch bought by Disney from Ola Shokunbi and Lindsey Reed Palmer, who will co-write the screenplay about a young African girl named Sadé whose kingdom is threatened by a mysterious evil force and accepts her newly discovered magical powers to protect her people, with the help of the kingdom’s prince.
