Sony just dropped the trailer for ‘The Woman King,’ which will arrive exclusively in movie theaters on September 16, 2022! The Woman King tells 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 (Oscar®-winner Viola Davis) as she trains the next generation of recruits and readies them for battle against an enemy determined to destroy their way of life.

Check out the trailer below:

Some things are definitely worth fighting for! And freedom is one of those things.
