Chosen Jacobs On The Disney+ Film “Sneakerella,” Music & More
Sneakerella is set in the vibrant street-sneaker subculture of New York City. It introduces El (played by Chosen Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. El hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly stomp on any opportunity that comes his way.
When El meets Kira King (played by Lexi Underwood), the fiercely-independent daughter of legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King (played by NBA great John Salley), sparks fly as the two bond over their mutual affinity for sneakers. With a little nudge from his best friend and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a “legit” sneaker designer in the industry. The Disney+ original movie — as directed and executive produced by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum — will premiere this Friday, May 13, 2022 via Disney+.
