Lupita Nyong’o’s best-selling kids’s guide is coming to Netflix quickly as an animated musical

Lupita Nyong’o wrote a stunning kids’s guide in 2019 referred to as “Sulwe” and right this moment we deliver the thrilling information that it’s about to hit our Netflix screens within the type of an animated muscial. Based on Nyong’o’s New York Times-bestselling guide with illustrations by Vashti Harrison and with Nyong entering into the position of producer, the animated model of the guide will deliver little Sulwe to life onscreen.

“Sulwe is going to be an animated movie!! 💜✨🎬Thank you to the readers of all ages who have joined #Sulwe on her starry ride. I’m so excited for this next adventure on @Netflix!” the actress and creator wrote in an Instagram submit sharing the information.


“Sulwe has skin the color of midnight,” the guide’s abstract reads. “She is darker than everyone in her family. She is darker than anyone in her school. Sulwe just wants to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister. Then a magical journey in the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything.”


“This is 5-year-old me. I reflected on this little girl’s feelings and fantasies when I decided to write my children’s book, #Sulwe. With this book, I wanted to hold up a mirror for her,” Nyong’o wrote of her purpose for writing the story. “Here’s why: As a little girl reading, I had all of these windows into the lives of people who looked nothing like me, chances to look into their worlds, but I didn’t have any mirrors. While windows help us develop empathy and an understanding of the wider world, mirrors help us develop our sense of self, and our understanding of our own world. They ground us in our body and our experiences.”


“The story of Sulwe is one that is very close to my heart. Growing up, I was uncomfortable in my dark skin. I rarely saw anyone who looked like me in the aspirational pages of books and magazines, or even on TV,” she says through a press launch from Netflix.

“It was a long journey for me to arrive at self-love. Sulwe is a mirror for dark-skinned children to see themselves, a window for those who may not be familiar with colorism, to have understanding and empathy, and an invitation for all who feel different and unseen to recognize their innate beauty and value. I am thrilled that the book is being adapted into an animated musical that we hope inspires children all around the world to celebrate their uniqueness.”


We don’t know but when the animated musical will likely be launched, however within the meantime, be at liberty to get pleasure from Nyong’o’s episode of Bookmarks on Netflix the place she reads the story out loud for little ones.
