Last October, the Marvel Animation panel at the New York Comic Con announced that famed King of Wakanda will be having his very own LEGO movie. Alongside MCU’s Black Panther film, this LEGO mini-movie entitled LEGO Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda, will be on the same vein such as the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers Re-Assembled and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload. Other than having his very own LEGO movie spin-off, details were scant about what was announced back then – until now.
CBR has recently shared several interesting details on this upcoming LEGO animated short starring T’Challa. According to the report, Trouble in Wakanda will be aired this summer on Disney XD, and will see the return of several voice actors. Returning to voice T’Challa is James Mathis III from Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Keston John (Bosch) as Killmonger, Daisy Lightfoot (Horizon: Zero Dawn) as Shuri, Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) as Okoye, Trevor Devall (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Klaue, Mick Wingert (Kung Fu Panda) as Iron Man, Travis Willingham (Sonic Boom) as Thor, Roger Craig Smith (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as Captain America, Laura Bailey (Marvel’s Spider-Man) as Black Widow, Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy) as Hulk, Liam O’Brien (Critical Role) as Doctor Strange, and Isaac C. Singleton Jr. (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Thanos.
According to the animated film’s official synopsis, The LEGO Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda will have T’Challa face off some of the most formidable Marvel villains that threatens his throne. Similar to what we can expect from MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War, we will see the likes of Thanos as he arrives from outer space and joined by the likes of rogue villains Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue in creating havoc to the technologically advanced kingdom of Wakanda. The Black Panther must now team-up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in order to stop the Mad Titan, and ensuring the security and protection of his people.
There is no exact release date yet on Disney XD, except for the fact that The LEGO Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda will be aired sometime in summer. Stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more updates.
