MUMBAI: “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will arrive on Disney+ Hotstar on February 1, the streaming platform announced on Friday.
The sequel to 2018 blockbuster “Black Panther” explores the aftermath of Wakanda’s loss of its beloved king T’Challa, a change introduced in the script following lead star Chadwick Boseman’s sudden death from colon cancer in August 2020.
“Disney+ Hotstar rang in the New Year with fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, announcing the Feb. 1 streaming debut of Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’ The movie will be available to stream in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam,” a press note from the streamer read.

Acclaimed filmmaker Ryan Coogler, who helmed the first movie, has directed the sequel as well.
“Wakanda Forever”, which was released in theatres in November last year, also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livinalli. The film is produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore. (PTI)
