Marvel recently dropped an exciting Black Panther featurette, where we learn more about the Wakandan warriors made of beautiful, strong, badass black women—the Dora Milaje.
"The Dora Milaje are women who pledged their lives to the throne and to the security of the kingdom," Danai Gurira says in the clip. Gurira plays Okoye, the general of armed forces.
Watch the video below.
We also hear from Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o, where she talks in depth about her character, Nakia.
"My character Nakia challenges tradition," Nyongo's says. "Nakia was born to be a warrior—she was born with a warrior spirit."
ICYMI, here's the synopsis of the film, that premieres February 16:
Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
