The film is a sequel to the 2018 film “Black Panther” and based on the Marvel Comics character Black Panther.
The film was directed by Ryan Coogler, starring Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett.
On July 25th, Marvel released a new 3-track EP “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Prologue” as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack.
The EP features a cover of Bob Marley's “No Woman No Cry” by Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems, “A Body, A Coffin” by Ghanaian singer Amaarae, and “Soy” by Mexican rapper Santa Fe Klan.
The three songs are produced by the film's composer Ludwig Göransson.
The film's director Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Göransson said in a statement, “This Prologue is an aural first glimpse of Wakanda Forever. The sound world for the film began with extended trips to Mexico and Nigeria. We spent our days working with traditional musicians who educated us about the cultural, social and historical contexts of their music. We built a catalogue of instrumental and vocal recordings with them that explored both traditional and non-traditional uses of their musical material. During the nights on these trips, we had recording sessions with contemporary artists who were akin to the characters and thematic material explored in the film. Using the script as a blueprint, along with the recordings from the traditional musicians, we began to build a musical vocabulary for the characters, storylines and cultures. The instrumental score and soundtrack for Wakanda Forever both organically grew from these sessions and workshops. They are conceived together as a singular entity to create an immersive and enveloping sound world for the film.”
