An action filled historical epic inspired by the true events that happened in The Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states of Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries. The film is about an all-women legion of warriors who are tasked with protecting and defending the Kingdom of Dahomey.

The Woman King is about strength and will, about independence and abolishing slavery, leaning toward fantasy in its heroic moments, but is rooted in truth about war, brutality and freedom. It is a splashy popcorn movie with a social conscience. The Woman King is released in the US on September 16th. Tell us about your Woman King to win cash giveaway.
