BLACK PANTHER’s Cast Discuss the Power of the Dora Milaje

Of the many, many gifts Black Panther has already given us, perhaps the greatest of them all is the women of Wakanda. From our new favorite Disney Princess, Shuri, to the Dora Milaje, Ryan Coogler‘s Marvel venture is chockablock with some of the most empowered, cool, and exciting female characters we’ve ever seen in ANY film, superhero or otherwise. And the women and men involved in the film seem to agree with us.

We sent Markeia McCarty to get the goods from the cast on what makes their female characters so celebratory and exciting to watch on screen. From the joyful intelligence of STEM master, Shuri, to the strength and power of T’Challa’s mother, Ramonda, and (of course) the badassery the Dora Milaje bring to any and all fight scenes, everyone was in agreement: there is some serious Black Girl Magic happening in this film, with effects that will surely resonate for years to come.

I mean, have you seen the #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe hashtag? The power of this film’s visibility and representation is already deeply resonating with audiences.

But don’t just take our word for it–watch the video yourself and try to not jump up and down with anticipation from now until February 16 when the film hits theaters.
