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 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. “Thrilling and enrapturing, emotionally beautiful and spiritually buoyant, The Woman King isn’t just an uplifting battle cry. It’s the movie Prince-Bythewood has been building toward throughout her entire career.”  —Robert Daniels,
