Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released in theaters on November 11, 2022. The long-awaited sequel became box office gold as it was the second biggest Marvel release of 2022 right behind Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. If you haven’t seen this amazing movie or can’t wait to see it for a second time, you will have your chance as Black Panter: Wakanda Forever heads to Disney+ to kick-off Black History Month.
If by some chance, you haven’t seen the movie, here is a brief synopsis of the action according to Variety.
The hit Marvel sequel takes place following the death of Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa with the people of Wakanda — especially Queen Ramonda (Bassett), Princess Shuri (Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and M’Baku (Winston Duke) — grieving the loss and searching for a way for their kingdom to endure.
To date, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is continuing full force towards the $1 billion dollar mark, following the close success of its predecessor.
Of course, upon the premiere of the sequel, the stars all paid tribute to the Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman.
“I’m bracing,” Wright told Variety on the carpet at the premiere. “I’ve seen some members of Chad’s team. When we lock eyes, we know how this feels. We have to take a step away. I see my aunt locking my eyes with me, she’s very proud. I have to take a step away… It’s emotional. We’re trying to hold it together.”
Variety chief film critic Owen Gleiberman in his review of the film wrote, “The heroes of ‘Wakanda Forever’ are fighting for their lives, their nation, their fallen king, and the movie lets us touch the ruthlessness of their devotion. They fill the void, all right, and so does Ryan Coogler as a Marvel storyteller. T’Challa is gone, but somewhere he is smiling.”
In addition to the movie heading to Disney+ in February, Marvel, has also launched a new themed podcast. Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast is where “audiences are invited to listen and learn about the exciting and emotional journey to make the film over the course of six episodes.”
Listen to the first episode is now. The remaining five will debut weekly, beginning January 18th, where ever you podcast!
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit Disney+ on February 1st.
