Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was one of the biggest comic book movies of 2022, and everyone is waiting for the film’s premiere on Disney+. The great news is, we don’t have to wait that long for its release.
As per The Direct, it has been confirmed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever comes to Disney+ on Friday, January 20. This would have been after 70 days since it premiered in theaters back on Nov. 11, 2022.
Besides the movie itself, we should also expect some special features like commentary and maybe even a look at the deleted scenes. I’m sure there are also going to be some more tributes for Chadwick Boseman, besides the movie itself.
I have to admit, Ryan Coogler was backed into a corner after Boseman died, but this movie managed to pull off being a proper sendoff to Boseman while at the same time being an entertaining comic book blockbuster. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long until the next film, but even then I wonder how they expect to move forward with Shuri as the new Panther and M’Baku being the new king of Wakanda.
Here’s the official synopsis for Wakanda Forever:
Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with Nakia and Everett Ross to forge a new path for their beloved kingdom.
