  • Here’s what you need to remember about the first movie

It’s about time Black Panther: Wakanda Forever joins the MCU on Disney+ Hotstar, and the good news is that the critically acclaimed movie is almost ready to stream after breaking the record for domestic-grossing female-led superhero films, ending Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

On Wednesday, February 1, Black Panther 2 will be available on Disney’s streaming service simultaneously as the original Star Wars and Marvel content tends to premiere. There’s more to come, though. The Disney+ streaming service will release the Black Panther 2 episode of Marvel Studios: Assembled one week later on Wednesday, February 8. We are yet to know if it will be available on Disney+ Hotstar as well. 

Here are five things to remember about Black Panther

1. T’Challa’s sister Shuri heads the Wakanda science division and is a genius

In Wakanda, Shuri has created most of the technology. As T’Challa’s sidekick and his eyes and ears out in the field, Shuri designed T’Challa’s Black Panther suit and served as his eyes and ears for safety while he was out in the field. Shuri is assigned to lead Wakanda’s outreach program’s “science and information exchange” at the end of “Black Panther.”.

2. Vibranium is the source of Wakanda’s wealth

In the opening scene of “Black Panther,” Prince N’Jobu tells his son, Eric Killmonger (Seth Carr), Wakanda’s history. It is believed that there was a meteorite that crashed into Africa billions of years ago that contained vibranium, the strongest metal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

3. Black Panthers are sent to the Ancestral Plane through a ritual that sends them to a parallel dimension

In the Astral Plane, your spirit interacts with other souls who have passed. In “Doctor Strange,” it’s called the Astral Dimension. In “Black Panther,” the Ancestral Plane is largely referred to as such.

4. The Wakandan spy is the former love interest of T’Challa is Nakia

Nakia previously served in the War Dogs, a group that carried out global missions to keep the nation safe. As a War Dog, Nakia also helped people in other countries.

5. A Jabari mountain tribe, ruled by M’Baku, doesn’t rely on vibranium technology

To maintain more traditional Wakandan customs, M’Baku’s tribe isolated itself from the rest of the nation. There was a lack of respect between M’Baku and Shuri in “Black Panther.” M’Baku criticized Wakanda for letting a child oversee its technological advancements. T’Challa and the Jabari sided with each other to save Wakanda from Killmonger by the end of the film.
