The Woman King release date in India

This is a real-life story of some of the best women fighters in history, known as Dahomey Amazons.


The movie was already out in many countries in the month of September and October 2022. It was also scheduled to premiere on 05 October and then changed to 14 October. But suddenly the studio changed it completely.

The Woman King is now releasing in India in January 2023. The specific date is not mentioned anywhere but the PVR website reports it to be on 20 January 2023.

This will be very late and most fans who want to watch it have now lost hope. However, if it did get nominated for the Oscars, some people will definitely wait for a few months for the big screen experience.

Is it in Hindi, Tamil or Telugu?

The Woman King was going to be available in only English and Tamil languages in India. This is according to the last update by Sony Pictures India.


However, they have already 3 dubbed trailers in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Here is the Official Hindi Trailer:

So, we don’t know the reason behind this issue. Hopefully, when it comes to streaming, it gets dubbed in all local languages.

OTT streaming update

Now that Indians can’t experience it in theatres, the question comes to digital release. The official OTT platform is still not confirmed but according to the last deal between Sony Pictures and Netflix, it is most likely to drop on their service.

The streaming release date is yet to be announced. Most likely it will stream in 2023, around the time of the Academy Awards.


But please also note that the last Sony movie Bullet Train is on Amazon Prime Video in India for rent.

About the Movie

The Woman King is a historical epic about the female warriors of West Africa during the 18 and 19th centuries. They were called Amazons by the Europeans for their fierce fighting style.

Gina Prince-Bythewood directed the film in November 2021, which was first shown at the Toronto International film festival. It has got positive reactions from both critics & fans for the amazing acting and action.

The film stars Viola Davis in the lead role, along with Lashana Lynch, Sheila Atim, John Boyega, Thuso Mbedu, Masali Baduza, Jimmy Odukoya and Hero Fiennes Tiffin.

Fun Fact: Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia in Marvel Movies) was offered the role of the main character but it changed to Viola Davis. Viola plays Amanda Waller in DC’s Suicide Squad movies.

Finally, here is the official synopsis of the film (via sonypictures.com): “The Woman King is 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 as she inspires the King to take on the enemies determined to violate their honour and destroy their way of life. Some things are worth fighting for…
