Artist Michael Pasquale has created the perfect post-script to Black Panther.
Spoilers below, if you haven’t seen the film yet. And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?
At the end of the film, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) takes his sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright), to California. Upon arriving in Oakland, she jokes that she was hoping to go to Disneyland or Coachella instead. T’Challa informs her he’s purchased the building in which their father killed their uncle and has plans to turn it, and its surroundings, into a Wakandan outreach centre.
But, since they are already in California and have a super high-tech jet, it seems pretty likely the King and Princess could head down to Anaheim and hit up the happiest place on Earth. Here’s a delightful peek at what that might have looked like, thanks to artist Michael Pasqual.
Not only is that just awesome fan art right there, but if you are a Disney fan, it’s got a lot of clever winks. Of course, Shuri has a Simba doll, a.k.a. a young African prince who grows up to be a king. (Sound familiar?) She’s got a Dole Whip float, a classic Disney treat; a Minnie Mouse shirt; and some of the clear balloons that are also very popular at the park. Then, the pièce de résistance, her “First Visit” button, another Disney staple.
