In addition to Disney’s latest film, Queen of Katwe’ being the first of their films set in Africa without an animal in sight, the film also features a number of South African actors amongst their entirely African cast. 

Considering the fact that the film was given a budget of 15 Million US dollars, it’s commercial success could bode well for film production on our continent.

Very few South African films get to enjoy the luxury of a multi-million Rand (let alone million dollar) budget. Hopefully, Queen of Katwe wins at the box-office so that we can show just how far stories about us, for us, by us can go.

We asked a few celebs which African stories they would tell if they were given an unlimited budget as well as who they would cast as a male and female lead if they were given the opportunity. This is what they had to say:
