Marvel fans can celebrate, because a release date for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on Disney+ has been announced. Fans won’t have to wait long to relive some of their favourite moments when the film officially debuts on Disney’s streaming platform on January 20, according to a recent CBR report.
The OTT release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever continues Disney’s recent practise of releasing Marvel Studios films on its streaming service shortly after their theatrical run but before their physical media release. Despite the fact that the film’s streaming debut is only a few weeks away, no official Blu-ray release date has been announced, but with its debut on Disney+ just around the corner, an official announcement is likely to come soon.
It wasn’t long ago that fans were transported back to the powerful kingdom of Wakanda with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November 2022, which received positive reviews from both fans and critics alike. Many praised the film for its epic action sequences, acting, and emotionally gripping story, earning an 84% critical score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 94% verified audience rating. Despite remaining in theatres for nearly two months, the film has earned $440 million domestically and $820 million worldwide, indicating another hit for Marvel despite falling short of the first film’s $1.382 billion haul.
