Black Panther Town Hall with Ryan Coogler, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Michael B. Jordan

The cast of the highly anticipated Black Panther movie stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about the making of this epic film. Director Ryan Coogler was joined by Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o (Okoye), Danai Gurira (Nakia) and Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger) in-studio to take questions on what a film like this means to not only the black community but all communities.

Each of the casts members shares powerful reasons why this movie should resonate with so many people. But the star of the film, Chadwick Boseman shared a tear jerking emotional story of two boys who recently passed from cancer, who were anticipating the films release and how that affected him. While this film is based on a comic book character, there is a much deeper meaning in the creation of this fictitious world that is Wakanda.

For those on the fence about seeing this film watch the full town hall below, we guarantee this will have you all in on Black Panther. The movie releases in theaters everywhere tomorrow.
