Disney Being Sued by Nun for over $1 billion Over "Sister Act" Plot

The Walt Disney Company and Touchstone Pictures are being sued by a New York City Nun who is claiming the movie “Sister Act”, its sequel, and the stage musical adaptation all used the “plaintiffs” real life experiences without her permission or authorization. Queen Mother Dr. Delois Blakely of the Franciscan Handmaids of Mary Convent in Harlem has filed suit in the New York Supreme Court as of last week for over $1 billion. Nun Blakely alleges that her life story was first used in the 1992 film, “Sister Act”.

 The suit states that the defendants used, “plaintiff’s actual life experiences without her permission or authorization, thereby irreparably damaging her by depriving her of the windfall of financial gain reaped by defendants.” “The subplots actualized in the said motion picture ‘Sister Act’ and portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg are her real life experiences,” the suit adds.

Last year she filed suit against Disney, and producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures, but she had that suit voluntarily dismissed in January.

  1. If it was really a problem, why did she wait so long to file? That, and I thought nuns had everything provided for them and give up worldly possessions. What does she need the money for? My aunt has been a nun since she was 18, and she doesn’t seem to be hurting from not having some of Disney’s money.
