The filmmaker, actor, comedian, writer and songwriter, wrote:
“Welcome to Wakanda! You wanna talk about black history! These are the new stages at Tyler Perry Studios. And guess what the first film to shoot on one of the stages was?! #BlackPanther, #WakandaForever.”
Parts of the iconic film were shot on Tyler Perry’s 330 acres of film production studios/space.
