Lupita N'yongo's book Sulwe to be turned into animated musical for Netflix





Lupita N'yongo's children's book Sulwe is becoming an animated musical film for Netflix! The illustrated book was released in 2019 and became a NYT Bestseller. For those unfamiliar, Sulwe tells the story of a little girl with “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,” says the release.

So happy for Lupita!! I bet this will be absolutely beautiful. Netflix has produced some great animated originals.
