In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the leaders of Wakanda 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 forge a new path for their beloved kingdom. At Disneyland Resort, we’re inviting you to join your own chapter of that journey!
I’m so excited to announce that for a limited time beginning Nov. 11, 2022, on the date of the release of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and through Jan. 8, 2023, you can encounter, learn from and celebrate the arrival of new visiting warriors, taste Wakanda-inspired delicacies, discover props from the film and more in Avengers Campus and beyond at Disney California Adventure park, plus, pose with a special art installation at the Downtown Disney District.
You are invited to Avengers Campus to witness as they introduce the world to the next warrior taking on the legendary mantle of the Black Panther. Who will it be?
As previously revealed, M’Baku, one of Wakanda’s greatest warriors and chieftain of the Jabari Clan, will also make his way to Avengers Campus. I’m excited to announce that M’Baku will invite recruits to join in “The Way of the Jabari,” an all-new experience that will share some of the culture of the Jabari Clan through chants and percussion.
Adjacent to the campus, just steps away from the site of the Collector’s Fortress, The Black Panther Celebration Garden will honor the legacy of the Black Panther in Wakandan lore. This celebratory space invites guests to relax and reflect on the legendary protectors of the Kingdom of Wakanda.
Nearby, Super Hero recruits will find powerful fuel at the Flavors of Wakanda marketplace located in the Hollywood Backlot. Enjoy flavorful, spiced traditional African dishes and experience the vibrant culture of Wakanda through its food. Wakanda-inspired delicacies include the Peri-Peri Chicken with yellow Jollof rice, the Butterfly Pea Tea Lemonade, the Dawa beverage, consisting of vodka, lemonade, honey, ginger beer and butterfly pea tea, and Maafe, a ground peanut stew with sweet potatoes, tomatoes, black-eyed peas and spices, served with naan.
At Shawarma Palace and Shawarma Palace Too inside Avengers Campus, feast on the Wakandan Roasted Pork Wrap, featuring spiced pork with black garlic sauce and chermoula.
Thirsty for more? Check out Shuri’s amazing gauntlet! Just one of several drinking vessels and more that you can expect to find at the Flavors of Wakanda marketplace, Shawarma Palace, Shawarma Palace Too and at select vending carts near Avengers Campus.
Time for a little inspiration. In the Super Store Featuring Avengers Campus located in Hollywood Land, you’ll discover props and costumes from the film, plus Black Panther-themed gear to help you suit up for your next mission!
In the Downtown Disney District, outside the building adjacent to Star Wars Trading Post, be sure to pose by a very special, limited-time mural celebrating the new film, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The colorful illustration will be created by artist Nikkolas Smith, who previously created the art installation “King Chad.”
Fellow warrior recruits, it’s almost time to prepare for your new mission! The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” celebration begins Nov. 11, 2022, and will be available through Jan. 8, 2023, so come immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, flavors and POWER of Wakanda during this special chapter.
