‘BLACK PANTHER’S WAKANDA MAY BE HEADED TO DISNEYLAND
Wednesday, Mar 28, 2018
What could make the happiest place on earth happier? A Black Panther ride!
Disney CEO Bob Igerhinted that a ride based on the successful Marvel movie was in the works. Iger acknowledged the movie’s impact on its theme parks when noting how long visitors were willing to wait just to take a picture with the characters. To that a reporter responded, “No ride?” Iger replied:
“No. We haven’t had a chance to build a ride. Though I’m sure there are people who are working on it.”
He did confirm we’ll be seeing more and more Black Panther merchandise. Since the conference, there have been no specific Wakanda– related announcements, but Disney did announce its expansion into the superhero world with a video tease highlighting Disneyland’s parks in California, Hong Kong and Paris.
