Per the studio, the project is inspired by true events that took place in the Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states of Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries. The story follows Nanisca (Davis), general of the all-female military unit, and Nawi (Mbedu), an ambitious recruit, who together fought enemies who violated their honor, enslaved their people and threatened to destroy everything they’ve lived for.
Boyega will play Dahomey’s ruler, King Ghezo.
“I have been enamored by John’s immense talent for years, but his speech to Black women during the protests cemented my desire to work with him,” said Prince-Bythewood in a statement. “The description of King Ghezo reads, ‘He walks as if the earth were honored by its burden.’ John possesses that innate depth and swagger, and I’m so excited to put it on screen.”

[ID: Digital art of six Black people of varying body types, hairstyles, outfits, and skin tones. They are gathered together and holding hands in a manner that crosses around them and between them. They all share close-eyed, serene expressions. Around them flows a band of color, featuring a gradient soft purple and peach. The background is periwinkle blue. End ID]

You guys don’t understand how I’ve yearned so much for more Florence Kasumba a.k.a Ayo. Since this absolutely amazing scene stealer that lasted only seconds from Civil War. Talk about massive big dick energy. From what I was told by people who worked on set, Kasumba improv that line and that was Boseman and Johansson’s genuine reaction.

When Black Panther came out I was so disappointed when she had practically zero lines and felt more of a background character. Still, I was ecstatic to see more of her.

Next, she makes an appearance as an AMAZON in Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, still a background character.

Then she finally makes a reappearance in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and holy shit it was fabulous. It was everything I hoped for and more. It exceeded all expectations and I’m looking even more forward to the Dora Milaje series (UPDATE: series will be called Wakanda) coming to Disney+.
