The Historic Revisionism of Shaka Zulu
3. His Zulu nation never went against Arabs or Muslims of any sort.
4. Shaka had 8 concubines and possibly one principle wife/concubine.
5. The two original actors from the original movie are in the new movie playing the role of Shaka and the British Lt.
Here is a clip from the old movie:
However, there is a new version of this movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEykxLsVzFo) that has been made for political reasons in a similar fashion to the movie "300" (where Iranians look like demons). In order to scare African-Americans away from Islam. In the new movie they depict Shaka Zulu going to war with Arabs!
This is historically inaccurate and a shame on the people who produced the new movie. But what can you expect when David Hasselhof is the lead character in the movie? Regardless, this new revisionism of historic events in order to demonize Muslims is sad and pathetic and should be looked into. I recommend a book called "Reel Bad Arabs" which lists every movie etc. in western history that depicts Muslims and Easterners in an demonic light. The same is true of other movies such as Lord of the Rings which has the evil Orcs carrying scimitars!
Buy the original 10 part miniseries that is a classic and a masterpiece: http://www.amazon.com/Shaka-Zulu-Complete-Part-Television/dp/B00006JDQO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1271090765&sr=1-1
