The Woman King is the remarkable story of the Agojie, the all-female unit of warriors who protected the African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s with skills and a fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen. Inspired by true events, The Woman King follows the emotionally epic journey of General Nanisca (Oscar®-winner Viola Davis) as she trains the next generation of recruits and readies them for battle against an enemy determined to destroy their way of life. Some things are worth fighting for…

    I remember seeing something about how the Dora Milaje in MCUs Black Panther was based a women warrior tribe/army in Africa and I thought that was cool af and very interesting. Now we’re getting a whole movie on an all women African army? I love it already and with Viola Davis behind it my expectations are high and I don’t think I’ll be disappointed. Got chills watching the trailer.

      There were MANY women armies. In fact most kings preferred women because they fought harder and were fiercely loyal. I’m happy about this movie but would have been happier if this was about Kandace Amaniranis. She played no games and Rome KNEW not to try her because she was about that life!

      @Old Luke Facts

      @Joshua Petit That is a lie. If you were even remotely knowledgeable about the practices during the Transatlantic slave trade which included the African people taken to Latin America & Carribean nations not just America, it was in the millions. Ship holders when they thought they had to many people on a ship, they would cut the chains & drown thousands of African people. This was a common practice. You need to educate yourself on the transatlantic slave trade because your comparison is a gross misrepresentation of the facts.🤷🤷🤦

  2. Yukon_C14 says:

    A little confused about how this film will depict the events since historically Dahomey fought to keep their slave trade alive, and then the French ended the slave trade by winning the war against Dahomey. Perhaps Davis’s character will be part of a faction that revolts against the pro slave-trade Dahomey.

    • John Smith says:

      @Mathieu Tyler no, history is facts buried underneath layers of lies. Just because there are lies doesn’t mean there isn’t one objective truth

    • Mathieu Tyler says:

      history is a point of view.

    • John Smith says:

      Sure let’s create nice sounding myths that non whites fought to abolish slavery lmao then put it in history books and believe it

    I was just telling my family that we was over due for a African Warrior movie and no disrespect to Black Panther. I can’t wait to see the production.

    • A Jae says:

      @Good Goyim You didn’t make a point. Are you disagreeing?

    • A Jae says:

      It would be great to see stories that don’t involve white people and European colonialism as well. Africa’s existence still revolves them in Hollywood.

    ”The woman King” that just sounds like a queen with extra steps.

  5. Dusty Scrolls says:

    I’d love to hear Viola’s work out regime/ diet for this. She’s 56 years old and she’s moving and looking like a woman in her 30’s. What an impressive woman. And Im gonna watch the hell out of this!

  6. ksfaith87 says:

    Finally, a film about the Dahomey warriors! Can’t wait!

    • ksfaith87 says:

      @Mr Research TV Okay. Tell me more. Are you a researcher? Have some info? Or are you saying that there isn’t enough focus on the Dahomey. Do share! You know, this group has a connection to the group from Africatown in Mobile, Alabama Mr. Research. You know the group that Roots drummer descends from – Questlove.

    • Mr Research TV says:

      the slave catchers and sellers

  7. Collin Stein says:

    Viola Davis has always had such a commanding presence and if anyone could be a warrior queen (King) it would be her. 😀

  8. Clay the Hamster says:

    Can’t wait to hear her iconic line “It’s Kingwoming time!”

  9. Not even a little says:

    Ya’ll just need to inscribe Ms. Davis’s name on the Best Actress Oscar get her front row seats ready and I think I see possibly a Best Supporting Actress win as well. It is incredibly hard to tell many stories about black history in a powerful and relevant way without making the stories and characters look like slaves, thugs or “other” for white culture to digest. I hope this movie does very well and I hope she wins and if people pick apart her Michelle Obama portrayal because they feel she over pursed her lips then folks need to get right with their makers because that is petty and stupid.

    • Dan Trebune says:

      This movie will do poorly because the average consumer doesn’t care about anything you’ve said. They want to be entertained by a movie. Not patronized. Failure will be blamed on racism and sexism.

      Also, this certainly will not succeed in China, which is the largest market for these movies.

    This looks like a GOOD version of Black Panther. Looking forward to it.
