Black Panther is coming to theaters next year and the first teaser trailer for the movie is finally here.
Disney premiered the first trailer for the movie during game four of the NBA finals. First introduced in “Captain America: Civil War,” “Black Panther” will follow T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, in the 2016 movie. He’ll take his place as king, but he’ll be challenged when he’s confronted by an old foe.
Here’s the full synopsis from Disney:
T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
“Black Panther” is packed with a star-studded cast including Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
Ryan Coogler (“Creed,” “Fruitvale Station”) is directing the movie which will hit theaters February 16, 2018.
