Wakanda-set TV series in the works from Ryan Coogler

The Walt Disney Co. revealed the in-the-works tv task on Monday, along with news that Coogler’s Distance Media has actually gotten in a brand-new five-year tv offer with the business.

No information beyond the reality that the series would be “based in the Kingdom of Wakanda” were provided.

“Ryan Coogler is a singular storyteller whose vision and range have made him one of the standout filmmakers of his generation,” Bob Iger, executive chairman pf The Walt Disney Business, stated in a declaration. “With Black Panther, Ryan brought a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life in a real, meaningful and memorable way, creating a watershed cultural moment. We’re thrilled to strengthen our relationship and look forward to telling more great stories with Ryan and his team.”

Coogler is presently dealing with a follow-up to “Black Panther,” which is set to be launched July 8, 2022.

Marvel Studios and Disney revealed back in December that the function played by the late Chadwick Boseman would not be modified and, rather, the business would progress with a follow up that would “honor the legacy” that the star assisted construct.

“As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms,” Coogler stated in a declaration on behalf of Distance Media.

“We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.”
