A West Virginia woman’s real-life fairy-tale story could be the next Disney princess story plot. The story involves a biracial girl who was put up for adoption when she was really young and later in life learns she is the princess of a village.

Sarah Culberson learned that her biological father, Joseph Konia Kposowa, is the chief of the royal family of the Mende tribe in Bumpe, Sierra Leone, making her the princess of the tribe. She had found this out about two decades ago. Her biological mother is white.

She was put up for adoption in 1976 and raised by a white family, the Culbersons, in Morgantown, West Virginia.

While in graduate school in 2004, Culberson hired a private investigator to look for her biological father. The investigator then connected Culberson with her biological uncle from Maryland who told her news that would change her life forever.

"I wanted to know what it was like living in West Virginia as an African man with a White woman in the 1970s," she said.

Discovering her identity and a better understanding of who she was, inspired her to share her story.

Culberson told CNN that the experience “gave me a deeper sense of my identity as being someone who operates and straddles two different worlds and cultures” and that “learning about my history in Sierra Leone, my family, community, country, that makes a huge part of who I am."

In 2009, she co-wrote and published “A Princess Found." About 10 years later, Disney got involved and there are plans to have an all-black female team to produce the film.

Stephanie Allain, the film’s producer, said a Disney spokesperson confirmed that it’s in the early phase of development. The movie does not have a complete green light yet, but plans are moving forward steadily.

Disney signed a deal with Homegrown Pictures in 2019 to develop the movie, according to a Disney spokesperson, and the average time it takes to produce the beginning stages of a movie is about 2 years.

On Monday, Culberson shared her story in a Twitter post.
