In a collaboration for the ages, Xbox and Marvel have teamed up in celebration of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for limited giveaways and more.
As one of the most culturally impactful films to date, Black Panther has pedaled technological prowess, and leadership in community throughout the film. The sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever seeks to build on the original’s legacy through promotions during the film’s launch cycle around November 11th. Xbox and Marvel are teaming up to inspire a new generation to become inspirations themselves.
Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, said “Collaborating with Xbox is an opportunity to show women the power of growing within our respective crafts, whether you’re a designer, a gamer, or an actor,” with ““In many ways, my character Shuri and I have grown together. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever allowed me to expand as an actor while, Shuri grew into her role as Princess of Wakanda and lead scientist of the Wakandan Design Group. Shuri, along with all Wakandans, will have to endure change and embrace the next chapter in Wakanda,” regarding the initiative.
