When Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Released in theaters in mid-November, we expected the sequel to arrive on Disney Plus sometime between Christmas and New Years. The estimate was based on Disney’s streaming rules for MCU movies. They have a guaranteed theatrical window of 45 days, after which they are available to stream.
wakanda forever however, had another fate. Marvel has extended its theatrical run, delaying the Disney Plus release to 2023. And now Disney has seemingly confirmed that the sequel will be available on Disney Plus on January 20th.
Shortly after the wakanda forever premiering, we heard that Disney wanted to give the sequel a longer theatrical window. The film delivered an impressive opening and Disney wanted to make the most of it.
Fast forward to early January, and wakanda forever The box office is over $820 million. This is far from the 1.38 billion dollars of the first Black Panther movie made.
Avatar: Way of Water launched before Christmas, guaranteeing moviegoers who have not seen wakanda forever would rather choose the James Cameron film. And Avatar 2 has already surpassed $1.39 billion at the box office as of this writing.
Even without fierce competition in theaters, wakanda forever is not available in as many markets as the first film. With all of this in mind, it is logical to expect wakanda forever on Disney Plus soon.
Disney will want to make the most of wakanda forever. The movie may convince more people to subscribe to Disney Plus or keep others from dropping the service until the next MCU TV shows arrive.
