Wakanda Forever pays tribute to Chadwick Boseman, the lead actor of the 2018 hit Black Panther who passed away in August 2020 after a private battle with colon cancer.

In her Comic-Con conversation with The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday, 23rd July in San Diego, Lupita who reprises her role as Nakia expressed her continuing grief.

She said,

“When you lose someone, I don’t know when you stop missing them.”

The 39-year-old actress says she’s grateful that the world will soon get to experience the new film following a trying few years for the film’s team.

She said,

“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,” she shared. “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.”

When asked about the pivotal moment in the trailer that teases someone else donning the Black Panther suit, Nyong’o played it coy.

The Twelve Years A Slave star said, “Don’t you just love a good secret?”

Glamsquad also reported that Nigerian songstress, Tems features on the soundtrack of the yet-to-be-released Black Panther sequel. Read here.
