In this exclusive clip from the special features on the home entertainment release of The Woman King, director Gina Prince-Bythewood talks about researching the dances the women portrayed in the film did to prepare for battle, while Sheila Atim (Amenza) and Lashana Lynch (Izogie) recall how difficult the battle dance was because of how much aggression and power it required.
The movie stars the brilliant Viola Davis as General Nanisca, the formidable leader of an all-female army known as the Agojie. This sisterhood’s fierceness is unlike anything the world has ever seen. When West African leader Oba Ade (Jimmy Odukoya) and Portuguese colonizer Santo Ferreira (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) come to the shores of Dahomey, it is up to the General to train the next generation of young fighters to defend their lands or lose their kingdom and freedom forever.
The Woman King is now available on digital and arrives on DVD and Blu-ray December 13th. ~Alexandra Heilbron
