Lupita Nyong’o’s Children’s Book ‘Sulwe’ To Become Animated Musical

You may not know this, but Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong’o wrote a #1 New York Times bestselling children’s book, Sulwe. Now Netflix is on board to develop an animated musical film adaptation that Nyong’o will produce. Per Netflix:

Sulwe has skin the color of midnight. She is darker than everyone she knows. All she wants is to be beautiful and bright. One night, Sulwe is visited by a shooting star sent by the Night, and embarks on a magical journey where she learns the eye-opening story of the sisters Night and Day. Sulwe is a story about colorism, self-esteem, and learning that true beauty comes from within.
