Disney Celebrated Chadwick Boseman With New Mural

Chadwick Boseman has been defined as a king even he was not T’Challa / Black Panther, whom he had first portrayed in Captain America Civil War and went on to play again in Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Children all around the world look up and see Chadwick Boseman as the wise king. Even just as a person, his kindness made a huge impact on others, especially to the people that were closed to him.

A month later, many people around the world are still shocked by the sudden death of Boseman, who died of a private battle with colon cancer. Chadwick Boseman was showered with love and remembrance from fans from all around the world and people that were closed to him. We see many children from all around the world actually cried and felt the loss of the one good king to whom they were attached.

Chadwick Boseman’s final role as Black Panther / T’Challa can be seen in Marvel’s What If...? animated series that will be on Disney+. He had finished his voice over work before his death. For the time being, Marvel is looking for an opportunity to pay attribute and respect to the king/. One of these was tribute artwork of Chadwick Boseman created by Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios Ryan Meinderding. To celebrate Boseman’s life and career, ABC News Special released this news with a piece of artwork for Boseman’s legacy and titled the tribute Chadwick Boseman – A Tribute for a King.

Furthermore, Disney revealed the artwork of Chadwick Boseman at Downtown Disney from Nikkolas Smith, concept artist and former Disney Imagineer, to pay tribute to his legacy as Black Panther and the impact that had on all of us. This image has the following caption from Nikkolas Smith:
"This one is special. My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney. It is a full circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children’s Hospital project and the Avengers Campus.

To millions of kids, T'Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman. I'm so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick's life and purpose in this way.

I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist."
