[Watch] See Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo in 'Queen of Katwe'

The first trailer for the uplifting film is here.

Published May 11, 2016

Get ready to feel inspired.

Two of our favorite stars, Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo, teamed up last year to star in Queen of Katwe, a film about a young girl in Uganda who discovers she's a genius at chess. Now, we have the first trailer for the film, and it's giving us major feels. 

Oscar winner Nyong'o plays the young girl's mother in the film, while Selma star Oyelowo portrays her mentor/coach. And if that isn't enough talent to get you into the theater, the film was also directed by Monsoon Wedding helmer Mira Nair.

Queen of Katwe hits theaters on September 23. 

It's been an amazing year for Lupita so far. Watch BET Breaks above to see how she's crushing it on Broadway!
