We all love us some Shuri. In the live action film Black Panther, her moments on screen left us with a smile and a laugh. Now Shuri is back and even more animated than she was in Black Panther. Marvel Entertainment, has released news that there will be 3 new ‘Marvel Rising’ specials at this year’s WonderCon. Of the three specials, one will be focused on the genius, Princess of Wakanda and King T’Challa’s little sister, Shuri.
The actress Letitia Wright who portrayed Shuri, in the Black Panther movie will not be apart of this project. The original actress Daisy Lightfoot, who has lent her voice to the animated character, will continue to hold it down.
According to Shadowandact.com the special will feature the following: "the lives of the Secret Warriors are turned upside down when faced with their latest mission: hang out with Shuri, the Crown Princess of Wakanda, and show her what it’s like to be an ordinary teenager. But nothing’s ordinary when you’re dealing with one of the smartest and most famous people on the planet."
This pushes the bar of inclusivity and visibility Black women have been working to make normalized for all industries. Check out a clip of the special by clicking the link below:
