When ‘Black Panther’ hits theaters next month, we’re gonna see T’Challa tear into his into enemies like a knife through paper. But he won’t be doing it alone, he’ll have the Dora Milaje at his side.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name, the Dora Milaje is a group of all-female warriors who pledge their lives to the throne and to the security of the kingdom.
Out of all of the warriors, Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) lead the charge. Okoye is the general of Wakanda’s armed forces, while Nakia serves a top secret agent. Though they’re playing for the same team, they don’t share the same views. One represents old tradition, while the other challenges it.
Black Panther hits theaters on Feb. 16. You can learn more in the new featurette below.
