Right on the heels of securing the win for Outstanding Cast in a Motion Picture at the 2019 SAG Awards on Sunday, Disney and Marvel Studios have decided to re-release the film for one week, during February 1 – February 7 at participating AMC Theatre. What a way to kick of Black History Month!

“Black Panther” is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement. “The story also showcases the power of knowledge to change the world for the better, and the importance of ensuring everyone has access to it.”

Disney will also donate $1.5 million to the United Negro College Fund, one of the preeminent organizations to help formalize the dream of thousands of Black students across the country.
“We’re proud to provide thousands of free screenings of Black Panther in hopes it will continue to inspire audiences, and to support UNCF with a $1.5 million grant to make the dream of higher education a reality for more students,” the statement continued.
The movie set a trailblazer in its path, breaking the record for Marvel films by becoming the top grossing superhero movie of all time and third largest grossing movie of all time, ranking in $1.3 billion.
Awards season has been favorable to the record-breaking movie, securing nominations at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards. With seven record breaking Oscar nominations, “Black Panther” becomes the first superhero movie to be nominated in the Best Picture category.
So “framily,” its time to dust off those daishikis’s, berets, kente cloth, afro picks or your freshest “come as you are” fashions in order to mark the moment just like we did at last year’s opening. Wakanda forever!
