How to watch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?

To watch the film on Disney+, the wait will be longer since it takes 17 months before the film is available on the SVOD platform. The first film released in 2018 is already there to help you wait, as are all the MCU films and series.
How does Black Panther: Wakanda Forever fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)?
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the sequel to the film released in 2018. Following the death of actor Chadwick Boseman, interpreter of T'Challa, the script inevitably had to be reworked. Marvel Studios quickly announced that the role of Black Panther would not be recast and that they would not use special effects to include Chadwick Boseman in the film. The film, also set after the events of Infinity War, will focus on those around T'Challa to explore and honor his legacy.
What is the story of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?
To accompany the trailer released during Comic-Con, Marvel also revealed an official poster and synopsis. We know that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will focus on the great figures presented in the first film and how these characters experience the disappearance of T'Challa, aka Black Panther. In addition to what seems like a painful loss, Queen Ramonda, her daughter Shuri, and General Okoye will have to fight to protect their nation from other powers trying to invade Wakanda.
Who are the creatives behind Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed), to whom we owe the first film. He co-signs the screenplay again with Joe Robert Cole. The film is produced by Nate Moore (The Eternals), and not surprisingly, by Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios. On the music side, the soundtrack is again composed by Ludwig Göransson (The Mandalorian).

We will find the cast of the first film, and in particular Letitia Wright (Death on the Nile) in the role of Shuri, the sister of T'Challa, and Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) in the role of her mother, Ramonda. Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), Lupita Nyong'o (Star Wars Postology), and Martin Freeman (Sherlock) return in their roles as General Okoye, Nakia, and Everett K. Ross, respectively. The cast also includes new faces with Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico) in the role of the antagonist Namor.
