After the death of the lead actor Chadwick Bosman in the Black Panther series, many people wondered about what would happen to the series, but Marvel expressed their condolences to the deceased actor by making a sequel with the story of people guarding Wakanda after King T'Challa's death.

At the beginning of its release, it didn’t perform well, but steadily went viral with good remarks. The total audience of the film reached 289,930, adding 30,322 over the weekend. If this trend continues, the film is expected to surpass 300,000 viewers this week. 4th place animation, Crayon Shin-chan: Shrouded in Mystery! The Flowers of Tenkazu Academy is also steadily popular. With 29,580 viewers over the weekend, it surpassed 789,965 viewers in total.
