It’s finally here – Marvel’s Black Panther DVD Blu-ray is out and you can buy it now! Enjoy this amazing film at home and own a piece of Marvel history, plus, learn all about the bonus features from the Executive Producer of Black Panther, Nate Moore!
It’s time to head back to Wakanda! I am excited to announce that the Black Panther movie is finally out on Blu-ray and DVD, so we can all take Wakanda home with us! I was so fortunate to be at the Black Panther premiere in Hollywood, then see some more Wakandan beauty at the Infinity War movie premiere shortly after and WOW. I just LOVED this movie, it was extremely well done and I am so glad to be able to see Marvel create a major superhero film with an all black cast. In case you didn’t see Black Panther in theaters (and who are you anyway?!), here is a brief synopsis…
“Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to become king, but when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.“
Executive Producer Nate Moore Chats About The Black Panther DVD Blu-ray and Amazing Bonus Features
While I was in Los Angeles for the Infinity War movie event, the group I was with got the chance to sit down with Marvel’s Black Panther Executive Producer Nate Moore. He was involved in almost every part of the process of making the movie, from the production to the costumes, and everything in between! It was amazing to hear what goes into the making of a Marvel film, there are so many moving parts and it is quite the job. You can see him on set below with Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa) and Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler.
Here are a few fun things I learned about Nate Moore and his role on the Black Panther movie…
- Moore made sure that we saw some of the Black Panther bonus features ahead of time, he chose three must-see clips – 1. The Crowning of a New King. This is sort of a behind the scenes of how we put Wakanda together. It goes through everything from production design to visual effects to cast and story. 2. Warriors Within. This is getting to know Wakanda’s women. So, as you know, having seen the film, the female characters are such a big important part of this film. 3. Hidden Kingdom Revealed. This goes into a little bit of how we crafted the different tribes that make up Wakanda.
- In choosing what bonus features to add to the DVD, Moore says “We kind of have a brainstorming session where people get to pitch out ideas of what they think is interesting and also what footage we have that we can show, you know. So, the typical ones like deleted scenes and gag reels, we know we’re going to do so we are collecting that footage all through production and postproduction. Once we kind of get a sense of what people are responding to sort of out in the world, we can kind of craft our features based on that. And this movie just happened to have a lot of really in-depth stuff because the building of Wakanda was so complicated.”
- Moore says that he and the team were actually surprised at the highly positive reaction to the movie in other nations. “I think there’s a natural hesitance in Hollywood to have a film of this size with a cast that’s predominantly African or African-American, you worry that it’s not going to travel. The truth is, it did. The good news was we weren’t concerned about it in the making of so we didn’t adjust the storytelling to work in any specific direction. And Disney from the beginning, always put their best foot forward and said well, we love the movie so we’re just going to figure it out.”
