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.
