Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Mr. Daps’ Home Entertainment Review

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever finds the people of Wakanda moving on into a new chapter. As they transition from what was the leadership of King T’Challa to what comes next, they discover that things are more challenging than they could have ever imagined. Not only are other nations of the world attempting to access vibranium, but a new threat surfaces that could wipe out Wakanda forever.

Quality

Watching Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and really and Marvel Cinematic Universe film is always best on the big screen. Second best is watching it at home on the biggest screen possible with the best sound system possible. If the latter isn’t available, opt for high quality headphones/earbuds/Airpods because this is a beautiful movie to watch and equally beautiful to listen to.

Extras

There were a few extras including with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The bonus features that were included were great but honestly, I would have loved to have more. The two Featurettes that were included were very worth watching as was the Audio Commentary that accompanied the film. I also found the Deleted Scenes to be intriguing also as they added some things to the storyline. I could also see why they were deleted but they were interesting. I wasn’t such a fan of the Gag Reel but some people will enjoy it.

Final Thoughts

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever really is a beautiful movie on multiple fronts. It is a beautiful movie to watch and listen to. The story is beautiful. How it addresses the grieving process with the passing of King T’Challa and also Chadwick Boseman who played him. It also introduces a whole new variable to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a great movie and an excellent addition of the MCU, it also is good to have the additional bonus features that adds even more depth to this film. It gets a hat tip and I’m glad to get to see it again, and maybe again and again, and catch more of the details and moments found in it.
