‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ roars on the digital storefronts

The launch of Disney+’s ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ did not disappoint us in February, claiming an impressive MPV™ score in the U.S. and being the Top Title of the month with an assortment of outrageously eye-catching Top Placements, while also dominating the rest of the major platforms globally.

With bold text, vibrant and star-studded visuals, Limited-Time offers and the Disney+ logo making it clear to users Where to Watch it, no heads could be turned away from this title.

The title was also seen to be used at the forefront of several Black History Month promotions in the US and CA, an important celebration that unfortunately did not receive its deserved prominence across the digital storefronts this year compared to last.
