Where In The World Was Black Panther Filmed?

Where In The World Was Black Panther Filmed?

Millions of people from around the world want to book a one-way ticket to Wakanda thanks to the success of Marvel’s hit Black Panther, but while you can’t really pay a visit to the futuristic land, we’ll tell you where the crew behind the film did go to create the fictional, utopian African nation.

 

Atlanta, Georgia

Most of Black Panther was filmed in Atlanta, which reportedly reaped nearly $90 million for Georgia’s economy. Pinewood Studios, which has been a filming location for many Marvel films for a decade, housed most of the major sets, and filming also took place at the new soundstages of Tyler Perry Studios. After the film was released Perry took to social media to share that Black Panther was the first movie to be filmed on his new soundstages. Other Atlanta filming locations include the High Museum of Art and Atlanta’s City Hall.

Busan, South Korea

Last spring, the Black Panther crew headed to Busan, South Korea to film the movie’s epic car chase scene. According the Hollywood Reporter, Busan is located near Gwangali Beach and the shoot required 150 cars and more than 700 people. Busan’s Gwangan Diamond Bridge and Jagalchi Market were among the locations featured in the film, and director Ryan Coogler praised the city, telling The Hollywood Reporter that Busan reminded him of the Bay-area, where he grew up.

Though most of Black Panther is set in a fictional African country, very little of the film was filmed on the continent. U.K.-based Marzano Films headed to South Africa, Zambia and Uganda for many of the aerial shots that are used throughout the movie, while the Warrior Falls footage was shot in Argentina. As for the scenes where T’Challa and Nakia stroll through the bustling streets of Wakanda? Unfortunately for us all, those were created with the help of sets and computers. For now, if you want to go to Wakanda, you’ll just have to go to the movies.

5 African Cities You Should Visit If You’re Dreaming Of Wakanda

5 African Cities You Should Visit If You’re Dreaming Of Wakanda

Do you still have Black Panther on the brain? You’re not the only one. The hit Marvel superhero movie has sparked a renewed interest in travel to Africa, and it shows no signs of slowing down. And while we can’t actually visit the afro-futuristic land of Wakanda, it got us thinking about which cities in Africa are the next best thing. Sure, these places don’t have an unlimited amount of Vibranium, but they’re rich in history and destined to make waves in the future.

Johannesburg, South Africa

We adore the beauty and splendor of Cape Town, but for a truly progressive city that is poised to make an impact, nothing beats Johannesburg. Johannesburg is still fairly young, but here you’ll find countless black men and women doing their part to put Jozi on the international world stage. There are plenty of startups in the South African city, the creative community is booming and major technology companies have been investing in Johannesburg for years, so if you want a peek into what the future of Africa could look like, this is where you should start.

Accra, Ghana

The sights, sounds and flavors of Accra will captivate you the moment you arrive, as Ghana’s capital is home to some of the continent’s best nightlife, culture, art and natural wonders. The city is safer than many big cities in Europe, and expect to be welcomed with open warm by most people you meet.

Kigali, Rwanda

It’s been more than 20 years since the horrific genocide in Rwanda, and Kigali is steadily reshaping its narrative by being a city known for its thriving artist community, promising culinary scene and numerous startups and tech companies. It’s also stunningly beautiful.

Lagos, Nigeria

One of the wealthiest cities in all of Africa, Lagos represents the very best of what the continent has to offer. There are more than a dozen beaches around Lagos, but the city is also a financial and technological hub.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

One of just two African countries to never be colonized by European powers, Ethiopia has a distinct legacy that is still evolving. The food is beloved around the world, the economy is booming despite political tensions, and many American-born people with Ethiopian heritage are returning to Addis Ababa to take part in the city’s rapid growth.
