Giveaway - Disney's Queen of Katwe Opens In Theaters Nationwide on September 30, 2016


Inspirational stories unquestionably sing to me, and this new movie from Disney, Queen of Katwe, is full of everything I hope for in a movie.


Here is the story of a girl whose life rapidly changes after being introduced to a game of exceeding strategy, the game of chess.



Disney’s Queen of Katwe is based on the inspiring true story of Robert Katende and Phiona Mutesi.  Phiona was a young girl 10 year old girl living in the slums of Katwe, Uganda.  One day she stumbles upon Katende and a group of children playing chess in a makeshift church.


Through the guidance of Katende and the game of chess, Phiona is encouraged to believe in herself.  Eventually, she finds herself not only competing in local chess matches, but winning in international competitions.  Robert and Phiona’s story celebrates the notion that champions can come from the most unlikely places.


After seeing the rave reviews for this movie, it sounds like a winner.  All of the reviews that I read all say that the actors deliver brilliant performances.  Older children and adults are going to love this heartwarming movie of how one girl rose up to achieve a great dream.  Even though it has only a PG rating (for thematic elements, an accident scene and some suggestive material), it might not keep the interest of little children.  



This inspiring movie opens nationwide on Friday, September 30, 2016. Be sure to check your local theater for showtimes. 


See the trailer and more featurettes at the Queen of Katwe website where you will also find links to purchase tickets.



To celebrate the opening of Queen of Katwe, Royalegacy Reviews and More has a $25 Target Gift Card to giveaway to one lucky winner that will be selected at random. I will personally mail the gift card to the winner via USPS with tracking.  This giveaway will end on October 12, 2016 and is open to US residents. To enter, just complete the entries below. Good luck!

I think watching your parents work hard, set a good example, and do their best at everything they try to do will help inspire people to do their best and have a positive attitude.

I told someone recently, and I hope she listens and acts accordingly, that you have to choose to be happy. No one can make you happy if you do not actively seek happiness for yourself.
