(Pocket-lint) – The first Black Panther movie was a smash hit for Marvel when it released in 2018. The late Chadwick Boseman was superb in it, along with Letitia Wright. Now it’s sequel is heading to streaming platforms.
Wakanda Forever hit cinemas in November 2022 and was one of the last parts of Marvel’s Phase 4 for its Cinematic Universe.
Now we have details on where and when you’ll be able to watch it at home.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever streaming release date
Wakanda Forever started its theatrical run on November 11, 2022. Now, a few months later, it is said be about to debut on Disney+.
Although we’re still awaiting official details (as it still says “coming soon” on the UK Disney+ page for the film), Reddit user gorays21 has posted an alleged screengrab of the US Disney+ service showing the release date as 1 February 2023.
We’ve asked Disney+ ourselves and will update when we hear more.
How to watch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
As with all Marvel Studios movies and TV shows, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be available on Disney+. It will be presented as an IMAX Enhanced video, in 4K Ultra HD and with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos as long as your home system supports those formats. It’ll be in HD and 5.1 too, for those who cannot.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever story
The official blurb for the Wakanda Forever story is as follows:
“In Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.
“As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.”
One major point it misses out on though is that Namor and his sea kingdom of Talocan also features. There are fights between Wakandans and Talocanians in the movie, that’s for sure.
