Written by Site Hub on July 26, 2022
While many are hyped for the latter half of the year to view Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, many have used this time as reflection. One star in particular, Lupita Nyong’o, spoke after the announcement of the teaser trailer at Comicon and expressed her pride that they managed to make the film.
Nyong’o stated: “It’s been a doozy of a few years for everybody. For us as a cast, having lost our king, Chadwick Boseman, that was a lot to process, and in many ways, we’re still processing it. When you lose someone, I don’t know when you stop missing them. And of course, we felt it so much, making this film without him…To make this film against all odds is a powerful statement unto itself, and I am very proud that we did it. It was very therapeutic. It restored a sense of hope for me in making it, and I think we’ve expanded the world of Wakanda in ways that will blow people’s minds — not just Wakanda, but the Black Panther world. It’s gonna blow people’s minds, and I just cannot wait until it’s not a secret anymore.”
