Disneyland Unveils Chadwick Boseman Mural

Chadwick Boseman

Today Disneyland unveiled a breathtaking new mural depicting Chadwick Boseman making the “Wakanda Forever” sign with his arms toward a lil boy wearing a Black Panther mask. 

Artist Nikkolas Smith took to Instagram today to share his artwork, revealed in the Downtown Disney shopping district. 

“This one is special. My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney. 🐾 It is a full-circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children’s Hospital project and the Avengers Campus” Smith wrote. “To millions of kids, T’Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman. I’m so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick’s life and purpose in this way. I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist.”

The child in the mural titled King Chad is wearing a hospital gown to honor Boseman’s recurrent visits to St. Jude’s campus Variety reports. 

“To millions of kids, T’Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman,” Smith stated. “I’m so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick’s life and purpose in this way. I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist.”

With the outpouring of love and support from all his family, friends, and fans I am sure our king Chadwick Boseman can rest easy. Rest in power.
