T’CHALLA (Chadwick Boseman) returns to Wakanda – a pacifist, technologically advanced African nation “hidden in plain view” – following the murder of his father King T’Chaka (John Kani) in a terrorist bombing.
Four of Wakanda’s five clans, including the border tribe led by T’Challa’s best friend W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya), support his ascension but the Jabari mountain people commanded by M’Baku (Winston Duke) loudly voice their opposition.
Fragile allegiances fracture and CIA-trained operative Erik “Killmonger” Stevens (Michael B Jordan) chooses this moment to stage a coup.
Flanked by formidable bodyguard Okoye (Danai Gurira), T’Challa rouses his supporters including his mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett), spunky teenage sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) and old flame Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o).
