The Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s “Queen of Katwe” took place earlier tonight at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Stars David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o, Madina Nalwanga, director Mira Nair and the real life stars were welcomed by hundreds of fans lined up along Hollywood Blvd, while inside the theater the film was enthusiastically received by a packed house. “Queen of Katwe” is based on the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and opens in U.S. theaters in limited release on September 23 expanding wide September 30, 2016.
The Red Carpet was dar red and a little tight, it that just means everyone got to say hi to one another and see the amazing outfits the celebs, cast, and everyone had on. Check out who I spotted:
Here is a snapshot of what it looks like on the other side of the railing. Press, Photographers, and more waiting for an interview or that perfect shot.
We even got to view an incredible sunset. Everything came together so beautifully,
Of course I had to grab a pic with Tara as we made our way into the theater to watch the film.
After the movie, (which was Phenomenal and I’ll tell you about next week) we walked across the street to the Hard Rock for the after party. Which was when the coolest thing I’ve ever seen happened. There was a real dance battle between the cast and everyone else at the party. When the song from the movie #1 Spice came on even Lupita came down and hopped in. It was fantastic to see and a great way to end a fabulous night.
Check out the video from the movie to see what they were dancing to and don’t forget to catch Queen Of Katwe in theaters September 30 2016!
