What makes 'Black Panther' so special? Hello, everyone, and welcome back to another video for the British Council’s LearnEnglish Teens website and their YouTube channel. I’m so excited to be making this video today about the Black Panther film which recently came out. For those of you who do not know what the film’s about or maybe haven’t seen it yet, it basically follows the story of the Marvel comic, the ‘Black Panther’, where our Wakandan king, T'Challa, is both the superhero and the king of the movie. He possesses the power of the black panther. As with every superhero film, our hero for this film, T’Challa, has to fight off the evil guys who are basically trying to disrupt and destroy the world, creating these mass weapons out of a special metal called vibranium, which is only found in Wakanda. Wakanda itself is a fictional African country but it is, in many ways, very real as well.
