T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.

But, in my opinion this movie had th intensity of a haircut and was a boring commercial to sell toys.
