Boseman, who played King T’Challa in the original “Black Panther,” passed away in 2020 of colon cancer at the age of 43. The sequel is set to be centered on Wakanda’s leaders as they deal with the death of their ruler and continue to fight to protect their nation from world powers who are trying to interfere. Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke are all returning to co-star in the film.

If Rihanna’s song sees the same success as the lead single for the original “Black Panther,” she’s in for some pretty big accomplishments. “All The Stars,” written and performed by Kendrick Lamar and SZA, went on to score an Oscar nomination for original song, in addition to numerous Grammy nominations.

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ will premiere in theaters on Nov. 11. Check out the latest trailer for the movie below.
