So what is funke's role, is it as Nonye, the warrior that understands her kings wishs or as  Nakia, the warrior that wants her kings love, even when he doesn't love her, or as Ororo storm, i dont think so, wait there is still  another warrior , "Chanter". Chante the one who dreamed of returning from america to wakanda, even though no NIgerian woman dreams that.

Also expect the dialogue to be in hausa.
