As its successful theatrical run continues, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever now has an official Disney+ streaming release date. Directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler, the filmmaker behind the first Black Panther in 2018, the highly-anticipated sequel was released in theatrical back in November, earning positive reviews from audiences and critics alike. The film picks up after the death of Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa and follows Shuri (Letitia Wright) as she attempts to reckon with her grief while also contending with the arrival of Namor (Tenoch Huerta) on the world stage.
Although the film hasn’t even been in theaters for 2 full months, many fans are already wondering when they will get to experience Black Panther: Wakanda Forever from the comfort of their own homes. After initial reports incorrectly listed the film’s streaming release date as January 20th, Disney+ (via ComicBook.com) has now officially revealed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be available to watch on the platform starting on February 1st, 2023. The exclusive theatrical window for the film is slightly longer than Marvel’s previous movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, which hit theaters on July 6th and subsequently launched on Disney+ on September 8th.
