Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o sign up for The Woman King

Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o are coming together as mother and daughter in ‘The Woman King’ movie. Viola Davis portrays General Nanisca and while Lupita is her daughter, Nawi.

The “Woman King” film is based on an African kingdom which existed from 1600 to 1894. In the film the African warrior women staved off slavery, colonialism and inter-tribal warfare to unify a nation.

“The Woman King” doesn’t have a director or release date yet, but we’re already so excited to see the magic they create on screen together.
