What is The Woman King About?


The Woman King was written by Dana Stevens and is being directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.

The movie tells the story of general Nanisca (played by Davis), the brave leader of an all-female military unit known as the Amazons, and her daughter Nawi (played by Thuso Mbedu). Mother and daughter fought the French and other local tribes, which sought to invade their lands and enslave their people.

The epic movie is based on true events that took place in The Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful West African states in the 18th and 19th centuries.
