Behind the Scenes

  • Director Ryan Coogler described Zuri as the "Black Panther's version of Obi-Wan Kenobi": He’s somewhat a religious figure or spiritual figure. Spirituality is something that exists in Wakanda in the comics, and it’s something we wanted to have elements of in the film. Forest’s character, more than anything, is a major tie-back to T’Challa’s father. Zuri is someone he looks to for guidance".[1]
