“Looking ahead, our studios will continue to deliver high-quality content at scale with an exciting array of series and films coming to all of our distribution channels. In fact, our slate for the remainder of this year is incredibly strong with titles like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ms. Marvel, Lightyear, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and the long-anticipated Avatar: The Way of Water.“
— Disney CEO Bob Chapek
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever started production in June 2021 and filming wrapped in March 22.
It’s been a difficult journey for the cast and crew in filming this sequel. First, the heartbreaking death of Chadwick Boseman. Then production delays due to the global pandemic, plus actress Letita Wright needed time to recover from an on-set injury.
Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett all reprise their parts from the first movie. The movie will also introduce actress Dominique Thorne taking on the role of Marvel Comics hero Riri Williams aka Ironheart.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will debut in movie theaters on November 11, 2022.
