“We were trying to gently expand the idea of what a “Disney film” could be. We tried to walk a line between telling a pretty authentic story about Uganda and Katwe while still keeping in mind that this is a Disney movie and that this could really fit into one of the things that they do very well – which is telling sports underdog stories and finding the ways the story naturally intersects with that genre of film. We were trying to find the right balance between those two poles.”
