Disney is set to make a new film based on Tomi Adeyemi novel, “Children Of The Blood and Bone”, according to Deadline. The film was originally going to be made by Fox 2000, but will now be made by Lucasfilm, which will be the first non Star Wars or Indiana Jones movie made since Lucasfilm’s acquisition.
The project caught the eye of Lucasfilm chief Kathy Kennedy and will see Kay Oyegun writing the script, who has also worked on the 20th Century Fox series, “This Is Us”.
Here is the official description of the book:
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. Everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for an enemy.
