If you were not able to catch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in theaters, you’ll soon be able to watch the Marvel sequel in the comfort of your own home, or even while sitting on the toilet at Starbucks if that’s your thing. Disney has confirmed the official streaming release for Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverannounces that it will debut on Disney+ he 1 February.
While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever didn’t quite reach the first films $1.3 billion box office haul, it still managed to earn a very respectable $820 million worldwide. It remains to be seen if we get to see Black Panther 3, but I’m sure Marvel isn’t done with Wakanda, especially since the two movies have grossed over $2 billion worldwide. Director Ryan Coogler recently said that he would love to return for more, and even discussed what his original plan to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would have been if Chadwick Boseman hadn’t died. “It was supposed to be a father-son story from a father’s perspective, because the first film had been a father-son story from the sons’ perspective,Coogler explained. “In the script, T’Challa was a father who had had this forced five-year absence from his son’s life [because of the Blip].“
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever finds Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje struggling to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. When Namor, the king of a hidden undersea nation, warns them of a global threat and his disturbing plan to counter it, the Wakandans band together with the help of War Dog Nakia and Evertt Ross and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. The film stars Letitia Wright as Shuri, Angela Bassett as Queen Ramonda, Tenoch Huerta as Namor, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Michaela Coel as Aneka, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, Mabel Adena as Namora, Alex Livinalli as Attuma and Martin Freeman as Everett Ross.
