Black Panther: Wakanda Forever now has an official Disney+ streaming release date while its popular theatrical run continues.
The eagerly awaited sequel, which Ryan Coogler, who also co-wrote and directed the original Black Panther in 2018, premiered in theatres back in November, received good reviews from both moviegoers and reviewers.
The story continues up after King T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, dies, and it centres on Shuri (Letitia Wright), who must deal from her loss while simultaneously preparing for Namor (Tenoch Huerta) to enter the world stage.
Many fans are already enquiring as to when they will be able to see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in the comfort of their own homes, even though the movie hasn't even been out in theatres for two full months.
Disney+ (via ComicBook.com) has now officially confirmed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be accessible to view on the site beginning on February 1st, 2023, contrary to earlier rumours that had the movie's streaming release date wrongly listed as January 20th.
The movie's exclusive theatrical window is a little bit longer than that of Marvel's last release, Thor: Love and Thunder, which opened in theatres on July 6 and debuted on Disney+ on September 8.
The movie's box office success is one of the key determining criteria in whether Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will receive a sequel.
The worldwide gross for Coogler's follow-up has already surpassed Thor: Love and Thunder's $760.9 million with over $820 million.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has unquestionably done well enough at the box office to support a sequel.
In addition to the movie's box office success, Coogler has showed interest in continuing the franchise after originally keeping quiet about the possibility of a third movie.
