Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman to Be Honored as a ‘Disney Legend’


Next month’s D23 Expo will be inducting a new class of honorees into the Disney Legends roster. And while there are 14 names being inducted, the one that stands out the most is the late Chadwick Boseman. The late star of Black Panther passed away almost two years ago from colon cancer at the age of 43. The sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will be released in November of this year and is set to both honor the actor and to move the franchise forward.


The other inductees joining Boseman are:  Anthony Anderson, Kristen Bell, Rob’t Coltrin, Patrick Dempsey, Robert Price “Bob” Foster, Jonathan Groff, Don Hahn, Josh Gad, Doris Hardoon, Idina Menzel, Chris Montan, Ellen Pompeo, and Tracee Ellis Ross.


The presentation will be on September 9th at 10:30 and will also kick off Disney’s 100th anniversary celebration.
