Four years after the original Black Panther hit screens, becoming one of Marvel Studios’ most successful and acclaimed movies ever, the sequel finally hit theaters. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picks up with Wakanda’s heroes as they grapple with the death of their leader, T’Challa — the character once played by the late Chadwick Boseman.

With T’Challa gone, a group of women — Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), and Okoye (Danai Gurira) — share the spotlight. Together, they face off against a new threat: the people of Talokan, led by their demigod king, Namor (Tenoch Huerta Mejía).

The film premiered in theaters back in November 2022, and since then it’s become an awards season darling, with Angela Bassett winning a Golden Globe for her performance. Heading into Oscars night, it’s a must-watch — but how can fans watch the film at home? Below, how to stream Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever available to stream?

After months of playing only in theaters, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hit Disney+ on Feb. 1, 2023. Fans can now catch it there, along with the original Black Panther film.

In addition, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is available for rent or purchase on VOD platforms like Apple TV, Vudu, YouTube, and Prime Video.

What are critics saying about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?

Reviews so far have been largely positive, if not effusive, earning the film a respectable 85% score on Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing. The New York Times’ A.O. Scott called it, “A Marvel movie, for sure. But a pretty interesting one, partly because it’s also a Ryan Coogler film.” And while Slate’s Dana Stevens acknowledged that it wasn’t perfect, she added, “To a much greater degree than I would have thought possible, Wakanda Forever is a gajillion-dollar comic-book blockbuster about something as complex and interior as the act of female mourning, split among at least four different strong woman protagonists.” Vulture’s Angelica Jade Bastién was less impressed, writing, “Regrettably, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever tries to do so many things that it comes across as threadbare and pallid — less a failure of imagination and more of circumstance, time, and narrative constraints.”
