"May All Your Dreams Come True"

Angela Bassett and the family rang in the new year with the magic of Disney. The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actress recently took to Instagram to share how her family celebrated the holiday season.


“Hey Everybody, you good,” Angela asked in her social media greeting. “Happy New Year from our family to yours,” Bassett shared. “May ALL your dreams come TRUE and ALL your blessings OVERFLOW,” the actress exclaimed.

Many have praised Angela and her husband, Courtney B. Vance, for seemingly putting an end to the recent trend that took TikTok by storm. Young users were playing pranks on their parents in which they claimed certain celebrities had tragically passed away. Angela and Courtney B. Vance’s son, Slater, decided to prank his parents with the false news of Michael B. Jordan passing away. Angela, who is a good friend of Michael B. Jordan, was taken completely aback by her son’s report.

Slater ultimately deleted his video on TikTok and issued an apology for his actions. “I would sincerely like to apologize to Michael B. Jordan’s entire family, his extended family, and him directly as he is an idol of mine,” the teen shared.“

“Taking part in a trend like this is completely disrespectful,” Slater told his social media supporters. “I don’t wish any bad ramifications of this of my actions upon his family nor my parents as they deserve none of the backlash.”

Many offered forgiveness to Slater for his prank. Some remained fixated on the teen’s decision to joke with his mother in such a manner given Angela still grieving from the death of Chadwick Boseman.

“It was emotional,” Bassett recently told the press when asked how she managed to work with her colleagues to bring Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to life. “We had not an instinct that anything was awry with his health,” Angela said of Chadwick’s declining health.

“Going back and working these hours, it’s like, ‘We think this is hard? Imagine what Chadwick was going through.’ He didn’t complain. He held it to himself and did the work. I love that it was emotional because it means we loved him.”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever made its debut a few weeks ago. The movie made global history as one of the highest-grossing films in history.
