New details about the Black Panther spin-off focused on Wakanda have been revealed, with a report suggesting the Disney Plus series will be animated.
An untitled Black Panther spin-off about Wakanda was first announced to be in production back in 2021. While details about the project have been sparse, it had been confirmed that director Ryan Coogler would return to helm the Disney Plus series. Now a report seems to suggest this series, previously referred to under the working title Golden City, will be developed as an animated show.
This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans given Disney’s CEO Bob Iger has indicated a desire to cut back on Marvel Cinematic Universe series for Disney Plus. Turning Black Panther‘s Wakanda spin-off into an animated series likely allowed the series to continue under the assumption it would be cheaper and wouldn’t be seen as “required viewing” for the franchise like other projects.
What did HH think of the Black Panther sequel?
In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the movie Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s real-life passing and the story now following the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. While the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”
“When it comes to performances, everyone here is at the top of their game, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett serving as focal points, the two are the strongest of the bunch, with incredibly personal moments that are some of the most heartfelt we’ve ever seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film, in particular, also works for those who might have reservations.”
