December 11, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Disney partners with Kugali to create a new science fiction animated series out of Africa called "Iwaju."

Now, "Iwaju" -- which roughly translates to "the future" in the Yoruba language spoken in West Africa -- has been picked up as a new TV series by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

While more specific details about the show are not yet available, Disney Animation Studios' Chief Creative Officer, Jennifer Lee, said it will explore themes of "class, innocence and challenging the status quo. "

This is not the first time Disney has partnered with African entertainment companies.

In September, the studio teamed up with Nigeria's FilmOne entertainment to distribute Disney-owned films in English-speaking West Africa.
