About Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In the much-anticipated sequel, "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," the Marvel Cinematic Universe pays tribute to the late King T'Challa while introducing a new era for the technologically advanced nation of Wakanda. The film brings back beloved characters from the first movie, including Letitia Wright as Shuri, who is now forced to step up and take on a more significant role in the wake of her brother's death. Lupita Nyong'o also reprises her role as Nakia, the undercover spy and T'Challa's former love interest, who returns to help her nation in its time of need.

The movie follows Queen Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett, as she grapples with the loss of her son and the responsibility of leading Wakanda through uncertain times. With the world's powers threatening to encroach on their sovereignty, Ramonda, Shuri, M'Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje, Wakanda's elite all-female special forces, must unite to protect their nation and its valuable resources. The film explores the themes of grief, resilience, and the importance of unity in the face of adversity.

Meanwhile, the Wakandans receive assistance from War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross, played by Martin Freeman, who becomes an unexpected ally in their fight against external threats. As the heroes come together to forge a new path for Wakanda, they must confront their past, embrace their destiny, and define what it means to be the Black Panther. "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" promises to be an emotional and thrilling ride, filled with stunning visuals, heart-pounding action, and powerful performances from its talented cast.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is part of the Black Panther Collection, together with Black Panther .
