Disney's Queen of Katwe

Disney’s Queen of Katwe (in UK cinemas from 21st October) is the vibrant true story of Phiona, a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess. As a result of the support she receives from her family and community, Phiona is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream.

Queen of KatweDisney’s Queen of Katwe is a story of hope. It shows the power of combining the talents, hard work and determination of those currently trapped in poverty, with the right encouragement, advocacy and support from those seeking to help them fulfil their potential. Phiona’s particular story of success through chess is exceptional, but the principle is universal: enabling people to develop and use their talents can achieve great things.
