  • [THEME MUSIC]

  • What's up, everyone?

  • This is "Disney+ Deets," where we break down everything

  • you need to know about your favorite Disney+

  • movies and series.

  • I'm Kenneth--

  • MARCELLUS: And I'm Marcellus, and not to toot our own horns,

  • but we're pretty much the biggest

  • Disney+ fans out there.

  • No, let's do it!

  • Toot toot!

  • Beep beep!

  • That's right!

  • Let's get into it.

  • [THEME MUSIC]

  • KENNETH: Today, we're telling you what you need to know,

  • and what you maybe didn't know about Marvel

  • Studios' "Black Panther."

  • Like so many of you out there, Marcellus and

  • I have been really devastated over the loss

  • of the great Chadwick Boseman.

  • Who, of course, brought the Black Panther to life.

  • MARCELLUS: Yes, Ken, his performance

  • was everything to me.

  • He embodied the character so well.

  • It was really a joy to watch.

  • KENNETH: When Chadwick Boseman first appears on screen,

  • it's literally the embodiment of Wakanda walking before you.

  • MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: I remember sitting in the theater

  • and I just got chills.

  • Of course, I was in my African garb,

  • and I just wanted to rise up in the theater.

  • But, I want to say this, Chadwick Boseman

  • will always be missed, and we're so happy that we

  • have this piece of him-- MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: --on film forever.

  • MARCELLUS: I agree, Ken.

  • And we want to pay tribute to Chadwick

  • and celebrate all the talent and hard work

  • that went into the making of this great film.

  • KENNETH: Yes, sir.

  • So give us some history of the characters, Marcellus.

  • MARCELLUS: The Black Panther character first appeared over

  • 50 years ago, in "Fantastic Four" Volume 1, Issue 52,

  • published in 1966.

  • His first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe,

  • however, was in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War."

  • KENNETH: Chadwick Boseman is perfect for this.

  • Nate Moore, the film's executive producer,

  • said that Chadwick read all the comic books,

  • he came to him with questions, and he had

  • his own ideas about Wakanda.

  • He was not taking anything for granted

  • and was fully invested in the role.

  • MARCELLUS: You really feel that.

  • This film is directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler,

  • and, Ken, I'm obsessed.

  • I really admire him.

  • KENNETH: This is his third feature

  • film with Michael B. Jordan, who portrays

  • Killmonger in the film.

  • Jordan has said that Black Panther was a character he'd

  • look up to his entire life.

  • Ugh, the Dora Milaje.

  • MARCELLUS: Oh.

  • KENNETH: They are Wakanda's all-female special force

  • unit, led by Danai Gurira, also known as Okoye.

  • MARCELLUS: Shout out to you, Danai.

  • [APPLAUSE] KENNETH: Girl power.

  • I'm not mad about it.

  • MARCELLUS: To fill the ranks of this elite security force,

  • the filmmakers and stunt team met with hundreds of women,

  • including film and television stunt players,

  • track and field athletes, dancers, and MMA fighters.

  • KENNETH: Mm-hmm.

  • MARCELLUS: Listen, they were not to be toyed with at all.

  • KENNETH: The main cast spent three months training

  • for the demanding action in the film,

  • mostly doing their own stunts.

  • MARCELLUS: Yes, you can really tell.

  • KENNETH: The cast and stunt team also practiced

  • with African drums so their movements would have

  • a musical quality that's found in many African-based martial

  • arts styles.

  • It's just the rhythm and the soul.

  • KENNETH: [LAUGHS] Yes.

  • Winston Duke plays M'Baku, and this was

  • his first major motion picture.

  • [M'BAKU CHANT]

  • KENNETH: Exactly, we were all sitting in a theater,

  • but after that chant everyone wanted

  • to stand up to attention.

  • [MIMICS M'BAKU CHANT]

  • MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: He was great.

  • Oh my God, look at Wakanda!

  • MARCELLUS: Yes.

  • KENNETH: Ryan Coogler brought on production

  • designer, Hannah Beachler, to bring the world of Wakanda

  • to life.

  • So Wakanda's main resource is the metal

  • known as Vibranium, right?

  • MARCELLUS: Right.

  • KENNETH: Biechler wanted to incorporate that

  • into her designs as much as possible.

  • MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: She even went to mining and metallurgy experts

  • to determine what the different phases of Vibranium could be.

  • MARCELLUS: Ken, you lost me.

  • KENNETH: I almost lost myself.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • MARCELLUS: Ken, look at this, the Warrior

  • Falls set is one of the most impressive in the film.

  • KENNETH: Yeah.

  • MARCELLUS: It was inspired by the real life Oribi Gorge

  • in South Africa.

  • KENNETH: The massive set, built on a back lot north of Atlanta,

  • clocked in at what-- 120 by 75 feet?

  • MARCELLUS: What?

  • KENNETH: With practical cliff faces 30 feet tall.

  • Now, instead of actual rock,

  • MARCELLUS: Mm-hmm.

  • KENNETH: Over 25,000 cubic feet of foam was used for the set.

  • The bottom of the challenge pool was padded for the stunt team.

  • MARCELLUS: OK.

  • KENNETH: But was painted to look like rock.

  • The filmmaking team also engineered a fully functional

  • flowing waterfall and pool at the ledge of the cliff

  • with six pumps feeding over 125,000 gallons of

  • temperature-controlled water.

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, wow.

  • KENNETH: Doing what?

  • Piping up through the set at a rate of how much?

  • I'm glad you asked, 30,000 gallons per minute.

  • Before doing what?

  • Recirculating through the system!

  • MARCELLUS: Ken, I probably would try to go swimming.

  • KENNETH: [LAUGHS] You would, you would.

  • MARCELLUS: [LAUGHS] Just swimming.

  • Yes, this part right here.

  • This chase sequence was filmed on location

  • in the actual streets of Busan, South Korea.

  • KENNETH: I want you to realize, the way

  • they driving in this scene-- MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: --is how my mama was driving

  • trying to get me to school when we missed the bus.

  • MARCELLUS: Oh, I understand.

  • KENNETH: [LAUGHS]

  • MARCELLUS: And you know what I really notice in this?

  • Ryan Coogler wanted the South Korea

  • action sequence to be seamless.

  • So he had an editor on set cutting

  • footage in real time, which isn't

  • usually done during production.

  • But Coogler felt it was the best way

  • to capture all the action, stunts, and special effects

  • in the frame, on time.

  • Wakanda is a modern society that's deeply in touch

  • with its history. KENNETH: Mm-hmm.

  • MARCELLUS: You can see it especially in this set.

  • It's sleek and modern, with visual effects, enhancements.

  • KENNETH: Mm-hmm.

  • MARCELLUS: But then, under the high-tech glass

  • floor is an ancient ruin--

  • KENNETH: I saw that.

  • MARCELLUS: --on the metal columns of the room,

  • you can find script written in 5th century Nigerian language.

  • KENNETH: That's that detail, that's that detail.

  • MARCELLUS: Mm-hmm.

  • KENNETH: Now look at these amazing costumes.

  • Costume designer Ruth Carter searched the world

  • from Ghana to Los Angeles--

  • MARCELLUS: OK.

  • KENNETH: --for textiles and accessories used to create

  • the 700 costumes in the film.

  • Coogler and his team established a strict color

  • theme-ing for the film.

  • For example, blue represented danger or trouble.

  • MARCELLUS: Mmm.

  • KENNETH: So blue was reserved for the border tribe,

  • who act as a policing force.

  • MARCELLUS: Mm-hmm.

  • KENNETH: And Killmonger's character also wore blue.

  • No one else is in any kind of blue.

  • MARCELLUS: That's right.

  • KENNETH: And the river tribe right

  • here, which is Nakia's tribe-- MARCELLUS: Uh-huh.

  • KENNETH: --wears green.

  • Lupita Nyong'o, who plays Nakia, wears many different shades

  • of green in her costumes.

  • Carter said greens mix well together

  • because it's like nature.

  • Now, I want to talk about one of my favorite things

  • about "Black Panther."

  • MARCELLUS: What's that?

  • KENNETH: Well with the cast from all over the world, Coogler

  • brought in a dialect coach to ensure

  • there was continuity amongst all of them. I love that.

  • That's thinking through every detail.

  • MARCELLUS: Mm-hm ]m.

  • KENNETH: Now, because actor John Kani's native language

  • is Xhosa, one of the official languages of South Africa,

  • it became the official language of Wakanda.

  • MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • I really love the celebration of African culture

  • in this movie, Ken.

  • KENNETH: I'm always going to have memories of my family

  • and friends dressing up in our African attire

  • to go and see the premiere of this film.

  • There was such a sense of community in the theater,

  • and amongst all of us.

  • And to see these characters who were

  • in the comic books come to life right before our very eyes,

  • was powerful. MARCELLUS: Yeah.

  • KENNETH: Representation matters.

  • MARCELLUS: It does.

  • It really does.

  • And you know what?

  • That's our show for today.

  • Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" is

  • now streaming on Disney+.

  • KENNETH: Wakanda forever.

  • Chadwick Boseman forever.

  • MARCELLUS: Forever, indeed.

  • KENNETH: Until next time, Kenneth and Marcellus, out.
