We have another new behind-the-scenes featurette for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever today, and this one spotlights director and co-writer Ryan Coogler. The entire cast and several crew members talk about how essential Coogler is to this movie but that his real talent is tapping into the humanity of these people and situations. Coogler says that this is a relationship movie, among all the set pieces, and the relationships will be the things that people remember. It's so moving to hear him speak about Chadwick and about honoring the legacy of losing someone important to you. It's clear that the two of them were close, and it looks like it will be very apparent in the final work.
