Who Is The Black Panther?

Deep in the heart of Africa lies Wakanda, an advanced and unconquerable civilization. A family of warrior kings possessing superior speed, strength and agility has governed this mysterious nation as long as time itself. The latest in this famed line is young King T’Challa, the great hero known worldwide as the Black Panther.

Now, outsiders once again threaten to invade and plunder Wakanda. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, a deadly assassin with the blood of T’Challa’s murdered father on his hands, who brings with him a strong army of super-powered mercenaries. Even with Wakanda’s might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against this deadly invading force?

From respected filmmaker/producer Reginald Hudlin and legendary comic book artist John Romita, Jr., comes the epic Black Panther story for which comic fans have waited 25 years. Starring Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond) and Alfre Woodard (True Blood, Star Trek: First Contact).

Customer Reviews

Animation is different, like an animated comic book.
Huey Newton
If you are the sort of person who can relax and appreciate a unique style for what it is, then do that, and you'll see it is appropriate and really well done.
John Kress
The voice overs are top of the line with great actors behind a very strong story.

1. First, people should be aware that this is not a movie, but an 8 episode mini-series.

2. The animation style is different, somewhere between "normal" animation and a motion comic, but the art is John Romita Jr.'s and is first rate. If you are the sort of person who gets upset that not all animation looks like your favorite "cartoons", this might bother you. If you are the sort of person who can relax and appreciate a unique style for what it is, then do that, and you'll see it is appropriate and really well done.

3. The voice acting is simply STELLAR. This voice talent and direction here is superb. We even get Stan Lee himself voicing a crotchety, loud-mouthed general, and getting it just right.

4. Characters of almost infinite lameness, e.g. Klaw (the guy "made of sound") and Batroc ("the leaper") are re-imagined in interesting and subtle ways, transforming them into both credible threats and working to build a Black Panther mythos.

5. Some people are upset that the Black Panther lays the smack down on Captain America. It *is* clearly emphasized that Cap has just started out (he has the old, pointy shield to prove it) ... and this Black Panther of the WW II era has MUCH more experience. And let's be honest, the Black Panther is in Captain America's weight class (I'd put Wolverine in there too). And do you know a better way to establish a character as a formidable fighter than to show him taking down Captain America (after a hard fight)? And as "generic state department guy" reminds us, the Panther did take out the Fantastic Four, all four of them, in his first appearance (canonically, in the comics).

The Black Panther animated series has quite the difficult run behind it. It was broadcast in Australia and was available for a very short time on iTunes. Finally, it is coming to DVD.

At first glance, the animation takes some getting used to but once you're immersed in the storyline the animation, art, voice acting, and plot of the story are all perfect to complement the story of T'Challa, Marvel's Black Panther. Even though I've seen the series, I'm picking it up on DVD as well because the show needs to be supported. It was high quality, original, and powerful.

If you're in the least bit interested to learn more about the Black Panther, pick up this DVD. It's got a great story spread throughout 6 episodes. It features cameos of a number of other Marvel superheroes and teases a possible sequel at the end that unfortunately doesn't seem likely to be happening any time soon.

Though this character has been in comics since the 1960's, mainstream noteriety has been minimal, aside from supporting roles in varying animated series and DVDs. The story arch here, interpreted from Reginald Hudlins run as writer on the comicbook re-launch is a formidable one to help non-comic followers understand the importance of the Black Panther to the Marvel Universe and to the world. With animation derived from the art style of superstar artist John Romita Jr, its visually choppy at times and just short 'motion-comic' quality. However, when you combine this visual style with high-quality editing, story telling, voice acting, and action, you have yourself a great overall product. Strap yourself in to the fiction world of Wakanda...the world ruled by the Black Panther!

"Panther power, you can feel it in my arm..." Public Enemy, "Timebomb", 1987

Marvel Comics' first Black Super-Hero returns for the first time in an all-new animated feature DVD. Originally commissioned to air on Black Entertainment Television, unforeseen complications scuttled an American broadcast, but now this eight-part mini-series is finally collected on a single DVD! Based on the works of filmmaker Reginald Hudlin ("House Party", "The Ladies Man") and comic-book artist John Romita, Jr. ("Spider-Man", "Daredevil", "X-Men"). Highly recommended! (see video)

I purchased this out of curiosity, as I thought Black Panther was such an interesting character. But WOW! What a great series, they flush out the history and also re-write a lot of third tier characters and make them incredibly interesting.

Is there a Season Two??? Highly recommended for any Marvel Comics Fan.

This is a fantastic story. I am so glad the people of Marvel did right by the black Panther. This type of
animation takes a bit of time to get used to but this one is the best. If you are a fan of the Avengers,
the X-men or Captain America you have to get this Movie.

this is a great movie. love the story, the characters and the animation. this movie is awesome and so is the director. if they decide to make a black panther movie Reginald Hudlin needs to direct it, and djimon Hounsou needs to play black panther. if you have not seen this movie then i recoomend you do

This is an excellent production. In fact, it's the best production for Black people in quite some time. It provides significant insight into the current world condition and is an excellent introduction to world politics to Black children in particular. This film should be seen by every Black person throughout the world. I hope they translate it into different languages.
