In case it’s slipped you, or you’re new here and don’t follow me on social media, I love me some Viola Davis and I LUH-UV me some Lupita Nyong’o.
Borderline obsessed, but I am not ashamed. 🤷♀️ I’ve been dreaming about a movie with these two powerhouse queens since Luey (yes, I have nicknames for my BFF-in-my-head) came on the scene in 2013/2014, but I was still NOT prepared for the news that came across my TL on The Twitter about half hour ago. (Never mind that I’m supposed to be on a social media fast.)
Mi almost tun ova offa mi bed!
Y’all! I cannot manij!
Here’s the link to the story, and just check out this synopsis for The Woman King:
It’s high time Viola got to play a bad@$$ queen on the big screen, and having just watched Bae (that’s Luey, for the newbies) kick tush and take names in Black Panther, I am READY FOR THIS!!! Today is also her birthday, so this is even more good news to celebrate.
Since I am still internally screaming, I have no further intelligent sentences to speak/type, so behold, my reactions in gif form in the Twitter thread below:
Many, many thanks to actress and producer Maria Bello who’s behind this project! In closing:
