Black Panther: Wakanda Forever aptly dubbed the most Afrocentric movie of 2022.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the most Afrocentric movie of 2022. Most if not all the cast, or significant majority of the cast, are of African descent or African American such as the famous actress Angela Bassett. Or the actress Lupita Nyong’o.

Much of the movie is based on African culture. The movie also uses references and symbols from African culture. For instance the fictional African nation of Wakanda was based off the country of Lesotho. The screen writers were inspired by the country of Lesotho when thinking of a fictional country to include in the Black Panther movie. Notice how the Yoruba, Hausa, and Xhosa languages are one of the official languages of Wakanda.

The computer generated effects managed to capture and visualize African landscapes from the continent of Africa into the movie. Those desert scenes were inspired by the Saharan desert which those are a reference to. Those computer generated effects are absolutely amazing and are ahead of the current time period. The technologic placement made Wakanda the most advanced nation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
