So the question around the water cooler this morning will probably go something like this, “what did you do this weekend?” If you say anything other than, “Wakanda forever” then chances are you need these Black Panther Cookies to redeem yourself. Because clearly you are out of the loop.
All jokes aside. Did you get a chance to check out Marvels’ Black Panther? The box offices number shows it’s been an epic weekend with $201 million. By the end of today, it’s projected to reach $242 million. Yes, there is a lot of celebrate. The love this weekend has been amazing, scrolling through my feed as family and friends shared their excitement for the film. Which made me realize just how fortune I am to have attended the movie premiere.
The last couple of weeks have been exciting. Sharing the behind the scenes in anticipation of the world-wide release. Now that the movie is out in the world, I know there would be lots of parties surrounding T’Challa, Erik Killmonger and Wakanda as a whole. My girlfriend already bought her son a black panther costume for Halloween.
