After announcing LEGO Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda back in October, Marvel has finally announced the voice cast for the forthcoming special which will air on Disney XD later this summer.
The LEGO special comes after the massive success of Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which just passed The Avengers to become the highest-grossing comic book ever stateside, and will feature various characters from the blockbuster film. Returning to voice T'Challa is James Mathis III (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), joining him are Keston John (Bosch) as Killmonger, Daisy Lightfoot (Horizon: Zero Dawn) as Shuri, Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) as Okoye, Trevor Devall (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Klaue, Mick Wingert (Kung Fu Panda) as Iron Man, Travis Willingham (Sonic Boom) as Thor, Roger Craig Smith (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as Captain America, Laura Bailey (Marvel’s Spider-Man) as Black Widow, Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy) as Hulk, Liam O’Brien (Critical Role) as Doctor Strange, and Issac C. Singleton Jr. (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Thanos.
The special is set to premiere on Disney XD this summer and will see the King of Wakanda endure some hardships on the throne. According to the synopsis, following Thanos' arrival from outer space and his threat to destroy Earth, the Black Panther is forced to leap into action and try to bring him own alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes. However, it isn't just Thanos they're forced to take on; rogue villains Killmonger and Klaue will team up with the Mad Titan to bring the fight to Wakanda, and Black Panther and the Avengers will need to defeat them before Wakanda is destroyed.
This marks the latest special for Disney XD, following the previous collaborations between Marvel & the LEGO Group: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload, and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes - Guardians of the Galaxy: The Thanos Threat.
A premiere date for LEGO Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda has yet to be announced.
