Lupita Nyong’o Voices Africa’s First Kid Superhero In ‘Super Sema’ Trailer – Watch!

The trailer for the brand new animated series Super Sema has been revealed!

Black Panther actress Lupita Nyong’o executive produces and stars in the YouTube Originals series as the voice of the title character, the young superhero African girl named Sema.

Here’s a synopsis: 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.

“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,” Nadine Zylstra, Head of Kids and Learning for YouTube Originals, said in a statement. “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.”

Super Sema‘s first eight episodes will premiere on Monday (March 8) at 11am ET/PT, with new episodes being released throughout March and April on the YouTube Originals for Kids & Family channel. The series will be free to stream!
