According to the numbers, there’s a very good chance that you’ve seen Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ film on the big screen. It was reported that the film, with its star-studded cast including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Forrest Whitaker, Angela Bassett and more, has become the highest grossing super hero film of all time, making over a billion dollars worldwide since its release.
Though ‘Black Panther’ was all the rage in the past months, in 2011, BET released a cartoon for the comic book series that was met with far less aplomb. This could be largely due to the fact that it was shown during the wee hours of the morning, when no one was awake. Nevertheless, the production credits are impressive, boasting a cast that included powerhouses like Djimon Hounsou, Kerry Washington, Alfre Woodard and neo-soul sensation Jill Scott.
Don’t fret. The good folks at BET have made the series available for public consumption on Youtube and we are now sharing it with y’all. Give the ‘Black Panther’ animated series a view below (it’s a playlist):
