Children Of Blood And Bone release date, cast and plot


According to Goodreads, “Children of Blood and Bone” follows Zélie, a citizen of the kingdom of Orïsha, a place where the king has placed what amounts to an embargo on all use of magic. This king is also responsible for the death of Zélie’s mother and all the other maji, alias users of magic. The editor’s summary (via Macmillan) expands on this, explaining that “Now Zelie has a chance to bring back the magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zelie must outsmart and outrun the Crown Prince , who is hell- determined to eradicate magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha […] Yet perhaps the greatest danger is Zelie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy. “

There are even more sources that filmmakers can draw upon or develop into a sequel if the first entry is successful. In 2019, Adeyemi released a sequel, “Children of Virtue and Vengeance” (via Goodreads), which sees Zélie and Amari take on a new monarch who has taken the throne in place of Amari. The script for “Children of Blood and Bone” was tackled by both David Magee, who wrote “Life of Pi” and “Mary Poppins Returns”, and by “This Is Us” writer and producer Kay Oyegun , according to Deadline.
