Disney Confirms ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ Film In Development by Lucasfilm
During Disney’s Investor’s Day on Thursday, Lucasfilm announced a whole host of incredible series and films currently in the works. As you can expect, the presentation of very Star Wars heavy with nearly a dozen new projects in the pipeline. However, there were some awesome non-Star Wars surprises as well including the news that Disney still intents to move forward with their adaptation of Children of Blood and Bone.
For those unfamiliar, Children of Blood and Bone is the New York Times-bestselling novel from Tomi Adeyemi which follows heroine Zelie Adebola as she attempts to bring magic (which is banned) back to her kingdom of Orisha. The book is the first in a triology of which the sequel Children of Virtue and Vengeance has also been released.
Check out the official tweet from Disney below:
Tomi Adeyemi’s New York Times bestselling novel Children of Blood & Bone is being developed by Lucasfilm in partnership with 20th Century Studios. This coming-of-age adventure follows a young African girl’s quest to restore magic to her forsaken people, the Maji.
