Will The Woman King Come to Netflix? The Film’s Streaming Details
The Woman King, which is based on real-life events, follows the Agojie, the all-female elite group of warriors who defended the Kingdom of Dahomey which existed between the 17th and 19th centuries in West Africa (present-day Benin).
Viola Davis stars as Nanisca, the general leading the Agojie fighters. The film also stars Lashana Lynch (Izogie), Thuso Mbedu (Nawi), John Boyega (King Ghezo), Sheila Atim (Amenza), and Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Santo Ferreira). The film is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and already has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
With the buzz that the movie already has, it is natural for the fans to wonder when and where the movie will be made available to watch.
When will The Woman King be available to Stream?
Currently, The Woman King is not available for streaming as it has just made its theatrical debut. However, we do know that the movie will end up on Netflix as its streaming platform.
This is a result of a deal between Sony Pictures, which is the official distributor for The Woman King, and Netflix. The deal allows the platform to stream all movies released theatrically by Sony Pictures between 2022 and 2026.
As we currently don’t know when the film will be made available for streaming, we can only estimate the period based on how much time previous films took before appearing on Netflix.
With that in mind, we can expect The Woman King to be made available on Netflix between 120 and 168 days. That means that the Woman King is expected to be on Netflix between January and March 2023.
The Woman King is currently available to watch in Theatres
The critically acclaimed film made its world premiere on 9th September, at the 47th annual Toronto International Film Festival. It was then released in theatres on September 16th, in the US, and is set to have its theatrical release in the UK on October 7th.
