38-year-old former ‘Black Panther’ star Lupita Nyong’o has just been revealed as the voice of title-character in the new Youtube Original animated series ‘Super Sema!’
Nyong’o is also producing the series which focuses on a superhero girl from Africa named Sema! ‘Super Sema’ is synopsized as: “Fueled by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), and set in an African-futuristic world, Sema, along with her twin brother MB, uses her “technovating” powers to save her village from the villainous Tobor and his army of mischievous Bongalala robots. A heartless artificially intelligent ruler, Tobor meets his match in Sema, who knows that with determination, creativity, and a helping hand from the amazing worlds of science and technology, anything is possible.”
Head of Kids and Learning for YouTube Originals – Nadine Zylstra – says of ‘Super Sema’: “We couldn’t be more proud of this series, it is the perfect addition to our diverse slate of content that supports kids learning and discovery of their unique strengths and passions. Coming from Africa and produced by an all-female team, Super Sema empowers young girls and boys around the globe who may see themselves in Sema, who is a smart, adventurous African girl.” Watch a first trailer for ‘Super Sema’ below and let us know what you think:…DOES IT LOOK GOOD???
