It’s time to return to the Kingdom of Wakanda with the November 11 theatrical release of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” And if you just can’t stand the wait, don’t worry! I’ve rounded up a collection of merchandise that’s sure to keep you hyped until the film’s release!

It’s time to embrace your inner Wakandan engineer and, like the innovative Shuri, build your own vibranium-powered vehicle… Or at least a miniature version of one. Shuri’s Sunbird LEGO set is super fun to build and, once complete, looks just like the aircraft flown in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” featuring rotating engines and folding hinged wings. Or take the helm of the Royal Sea Leopard ship with the Black Panther: War on the Water set. Check out both sets now on shopDisney.

Dress for greatness in new “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”-inspired apparel, including this embroidered hoodie for adults, the pullover sweatshirt for kids, and these cool socks. Little heroes can even don the iconic Wakanda warrior pattern in this costume PJ Pals set that looks just like the suits worn by the Dora Milaje. You can find the PJ Pals set, and socks now on shopDisney, and look out for the hoodie and sweatshirt coming soon to shopDisney and Disney Parks!

Need some accessories to match your new outfit? This Loungefly mini backpack is launching on shopDisney and in Disney Parks on November 7, and features a bold design inspired by the colorful costumes seen in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Also coming soon is this artful ear headband, accented with beads and a metallic finish.

Shirts for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”

Disneyland Resort guests won’t want to miss out on the experiences to celebrate “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” taking place from Nov. 11, 2022, through Jan. 8, 2023, including the Super Store featuring Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure Park’s Hollywood Land. You’ll discover props and costumes from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” as well as the perfect gear to help you suit up for your next mission!

Celebrate the brilliant and empowering female warriors of Wakanda—OkoyeNakia, and Shuri—with the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” Fresh Fierce Collection, recently named 2022 Doll of the Year at The Toy Foundation’s annual Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards. From World of EPI and company founder Dr. Lisa Williams, a leader in multi-cultural toy manufacturing and design, these collectible dolls were created with incredible attention to details, featuring blended skin tones, authentic and first-of-its kind innovative hairstyles, and replica playable battle accessories. Look out for the Okoye and Nakia dolls launching November 14 on shopDisney and all three dolls available at retailers nationwide.

Another beautiful doll you can find on shopDisney is the Limited Edition Shuri Marvel Designer Collection Doll that features the Wakandan Princess Shuri in a glamorous outfit and makeup. Crafted with such exquisite detail, if you look closely you can even see a purple vibranium glow reflected in her eyes!

Crew socks - “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”

Walt Disney World Resort guests should make sure to stop by Stance at Disney Springs for these awesome socks that are sure to put some pep in your step. Choose from three styles and fabrics: The King Performance Crew Socks, made of a lightweight nylon blend; The Wakanda Forever Crew Socks, made from a comfortable yet durable polyester blend; and the Yibambe Crew Socks, made from Stance’s classic combed cotton blend.

We’ve got your toes covered. Now to make sure your fingers are also decorated in Wakanda-inspired art with Pear Nova’s Layovers, luxury faux nails, available in three themed designs. Vibranium Claws, inspired by Wakanda’s most precious metal, feature iridescent green, gold, and blue art within a black frame. Wakandan Tech 101 gives a nod to Shuri’s lab and Wakandan technology with a bold white streak and grey tip coating on a transparent nail base. Finally, my personal favorite is Rituals + Royals, which draws from the vibrant colors worn by Wakanda’s all-female special forces, the Dora Milaje.

Everyday heroes, get ready for a hair care routine fit for Wakandan royals! Young King Hair Care’s Limited Edition Black Panther Wakanda Forever Collection is crafted with plant-based ingredients like Baobab and Marula Oils, ingredients native to Africa. The products, including Wakandan Refreshing Oil SprayCurl CustardStyling BalmCleansing Co-Wash, are created to ensure curly hair is kept moisturized and deeply hydrated at every step of the grooming and styling process.

Not all of us are fortunate enough to possess Black Panther’s superhuman strength and agility. And if you’re like me and just can’t seem to get your hands on the Heart-Shaped Herb, at least we adults can be thankful we have the next best thing… amazing coffee! And it doesn’t get more heroically amazing than these new blends inspired by “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” from BLK & Bold Specialty Coffee. Choose from Smoove Operator, a dark roast that offers notes of caramel and toffee, and Rise & GRND, a sweet and creamy medium roast, also available in Keurig K-Cups.

If you love Funko Pop!, you won’t want to miss these new styles, including M’BakuQueen RamondaNamor, and Okoye, all of which you can pre-order now and purchase starting November 10. And if you’re eager to add to your vinyl collection right now, look no further than the Pop! Rides Super Deluxe: Shuri in Sunbird, which you can find at major retailers.

Young Wakandan warriors can gear up for imaginative battles with this Kingsguard FX electronic toy spear which features motion-activated battle sound effects. Or they can don the armor of the warrior Attuma, who wears this fierce hammerhead shark mask in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

I can’t think of a better way to spend time until “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” releases than by curling up with a good book. Indulge in gorgeous illustrations and insightful essays from artists, writers, and comics legends on the monumental impact and legacy of the film “Black Panther” in “Black Panther: Dreams of Wakanda.”

Little ones and adults alike will love “Wakanda Forever: The Courage to Dream,” an inspiring picture book about a young Wakandan who dreams of becoming one of the Dora Milaje. Meet author Frederick Joseph and illustrator Nikkolas Smith on November 12 during the Downtown Disney District Book Fair. And while you’re at Downtown Disney District, make sure to strike a heroic pose in front of Nikkolas Smith’s limited-time Black Panther mural.

This roundup has me so excited to see the new film on November 11. And this isn’t all! Check back for even more “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” merchandise debuting on shopDisney and in Disney Parks this holiday season. And stay tuned for an exciting announcement on November 8, just for you, our Disney Parks Blog fans! See you then!
