Black Panther



T'Challa returns home after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda. In his isolated, technologically advanced African nation, he sets out to succeed the throne and take his rightful place as king.



The mighty nation of Wakanda including its people, architecture, and weaponry were realized by ILM. Multiple corners or the African nation required CG enhancement or complete creation to provide the settings for for the characters and story. Set extensions, vehicles, and crowds were some of the elements provided by the visual effects team to bring these environment to life.
