A new Disney+ spin-off series is coming to the streaming platform and it is coming from Ryan Coogler and will be focused on Wakanda.
Disney has also extended the relationship between them and Ryan Coogler as Coogler has just signed a five-year television deal with him.
According to Deadline the Black Panther spin-off with being focused on the “Kingdom of Wakanda”, it will be Ryan Coogler producing it and will be a “drama” series.
The series is said to be one of many productions Coogler and his production company, Proximity Media will produce for Disney TV.
Disney’s Bob Iger said this on the news:
Ryan Coogler is a singular storyteller whose vision and range have made him one of the standout filmmakers of his generation, with Black Panther, Ryan brought a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life in a real, meaningful, and memorable way, creating a watershed cultural moment. We’re thrilled to strengthen our relationship and look forward to telling more great stories with Ryan and his team.
Ryan Coogler also released a statement on his deal:
It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.
With the news of a spin-off series set in Wakanda, I wonder what else Ryan Coogler is working on for Marvel and Disney, He’s a great director and producer so I have no issue or worry about him being this involved in the stuff going forward.
