Enjoy this sneak peek of Disney's new faith-filled movie QUEEN OF KATWE that stars Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o and Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, in the inspiring true story of missionary Robert Katende and Phiona Mutesi that proves that heroism is in each one of us—we all have the ability to touch, to inspire, and to impact the children of our communities.
Phiona was a young girl living on the streets of Katwe, Uganda. She stumbled across an outreach ministry that used chess to encourage them with the idea that “What matters is when you reset the pieces and play again.” Eventually, Phiona found herself winning local chess matches. She now competes internationally, and thanks to the Sports Outreach Institute Missionary Program, she is also in school to become a pediatrician with the goal of opening a free clinic in Katwe to help others.
QUEEN OF KATWE opens in theaters September 23rd.
