When you mention animated movies, Hollywood comes to mind immediately, but Malika: Warrior Queen is made by Africans for worldwide screening.
With the main character played by Nigeria’s very own Adesua Etomi, the animated movie talks about the story of a queen who inherited the throne from her late father, but envy from other tribes and also among her own council, creates friction and division which she must have to fight to bring peace, unity and maintain her reign as queen.
YouNeek Studios, makers of the series took over three years to create it, basically setting it in the fifteenth century. Adesua is joined by Femi Branch (Chief Dogbari), Deyemi Okanlowon (WindMaker and King Bass), Sambassa Nzeribe (General Ras).
Malika: Warrior Queen will debut at the 8th Annual Lagos Comic Convention on September 21 and at the 6th Annual MECCAcon, Detroit, Michigan.
Watch the official trailer for Malika: Warrior Queen while we wait for the premiere dates.
