Marvel Studios’ Black Panther
This movie made serious waves when it hit theatres earlier this year, and one viewing will tell you why—the whole family will love watching T’Challa, heir to the hidden kingdom of Wakanda, lead his people into a new future. Black Panther is considered one of the best movies set in the Marvel Comic Universe, and moviegoers and critics alike raved about its cultural significance, production value and storytelling.
We love a robot-human dynamic. In this movie, a lonely girl named Mai (we love her purple hair!) is changed forever when she develops a friendship with a top-secret robot, and the two tackle all kinds of evil.
