black panther welcome to wakanda still

In a new clip, Marvel and key figures from Black Panther explain the film’s utopian vision of Wakanda.

In the featurette, the technologically advanced kingdom is a vision of what an uncolonized Africa might look like. Chadwick Boseman – who plays Wakanda’s leader Prince T’Challa – explains that “we had to build a world, build a culture.” The short video goes into location scouting for the film, as well as the cultural references that make Wakanda so convincing and memorable in the movie.
