Last month, reported a Disney announcement that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would be coming to Disney Plus on February 1, 2023 — a date presumably chosen to coincide with the start of Black History Month in the US.

Black Panther 2 on Disney Plus: AU date, time and more

Release date and time: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever debuts on Wednesday, February 1 on Disney Plus at 6PM (AEDT).

Due to the sudden loss of original Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman to cancer in 2020, Marvel Studios and the film's cast and crew found themselves faced with some tough decisions on how to continue the franchise without its star.

While the sequel would ultimately continue in a different direction than originally intended, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever proved to be fitting tribute to our fallen hero, with the filmmakers deciding to give the character of T'Challa a heartbreaking send-off rather than recast Boseman. 

As you might expect, with no successor to the Black Panther throne currently chosen, this leaves the secretive African nation state of Wakanda open for outside threats. While the question of "who will become the new Black Panther?" remains on the lips of every character, Wakanda finds itself in the sights of a new antagonist in Namor (Tehnoc Huerta), ruler of the underwater kingdom of Talokan.. 

In our Black Panther: Wakanda Forever review, we declared Wakanda Forever to be one of the better recent entries in the MCU, due in large part to the outstanding (and now Oscar-nominated) performance of Angela Bassett as Queen Ramonda.

If you haven't watched the film yet, we highly recommend you check it out. Read on to find out how to watch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever online in Australia.
