If you missed watching Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in local theaters last year, make sure to mark your calendars for Feb. 1 because the much-talked-about film is arriving in Disney+ on that day.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hit theaters on Nov. 9, 2022, and delivered a notable ending for Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4, with fans raving about its storyline and believable computer graphics, as reflected on its 94% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

It tells the story of how Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and Dora Milaje strive to protect their highly advanced nation from indomitable intervening powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. It also introduces Namor, the ruler of a hidden undersea nation, as the main antagonist.

Actresses Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, and Florence Kasumba are reprising their roles in the film, as Tenoch Huerta Mejía who plays Namor, makes his MCU debut. 

Directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever became the sixth highest-grossing film of 2022, with total sales of over $827 million globally.  It comes next to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has earned $955.8 million worldwide.

In line with the film's Disney+ premiere in February, the entertainment studio has announced the launch of Marvel Studios and Proximity Media's new podcast, titled Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film. 

The first episode of this six-part podcast series was released on Nov. 3, 2022, with the rest released on all major podcast platforms and Proximity Media's website since Jan. 18. You can stream the Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast here.
