The Woman King Release Date

  • Off-screen, fans cheered these fictitious woman fighters for frequently easily defeating their opponents without the need for special abilities.
  • Their martial prowess was admired by everyone they encountered on television. But what if we informed you that real people served as Dora Milaje's inspiration?
  • The all-female military corps of Dahomey, West Africa, was an inspiration for the Marvel characters, as detailed in Time(opens in new tab).
  • The country of Dahomey was once powerful because of its unique set of skills.
  • People today have the chance to witness the unfolding of their true stories. The Woman King's storyline is described by Sony as follows:
  • “The Woman King tells the extraordinary tale of the Agojie, a group of all-female warriors who, in the 1800s, guarded the African Kingdom of Dahomey with prowess and ferocity never before seen in history.

The Woman King, inspired by actual events, chronicles the emotionally arduous path of General Nanisca (Viola Davis), who prepares the next generation of recruits for combat with an adversary out to destroy their way of life.”

The Cast of The Woman King

The cast is led by Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis, who plays General Nanisca.

The Woman King Release Date

  • Davis has given some outstanding performances during her career in cinema and television that have won her the respect of her peers, honors from numerous organizations, and appreciation from many people worldwide.
  • She has worked on films like How to Get Away with Murder, Suicide Squad, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and Fences.
  • “I've never played such a character before. It changes things. And to work on it as a producer and be aware that I contributed to its success… You always have a career goal in mind, but there aren't many black actor parts available.
  • Big lips and a wide nose go well with a dark complexion. I'm just going to keep saying it. Those are a minimal number of stories.”
  • Actor John Boyega will appear in The Woman King with Davis as King Gozo. The BAFTA-winning actor has been in high-profile movies such as Pacific Rim: Uprising, Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, and Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Thuso Mbedu (The Underground Railroad), Lashana Lynch (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), Sheila Atim (The Underground Railroad), and Hero Fiennes Tiffin complete the primary cast of the film (After We Collided).

See what some other reviewers had to say about The Woman King:

  • The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday (opens in new tab): The Woman King is a film that is every bit as majestic and massive as its title suggests, and Viola Davis owns it.
  • The Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips (opens in new tab): “This movie is motivated by the motivations behind its conflicts and characters.

Some of it is overstuffed and freely fabricated. But The Woman King feels like a human, not a machine, created it.”
