After appearing as the War Dog Nakia in Black Panther, Lupita Nyong’o has returned in the role for the sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Of course, the circumstances have changed for everyone in the film, since the tragic death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman necessitated that the film’s plot be completely revamped to account for the death of Boseman’s character. But, as Nyong’o told us, even though Boseman’s gone, he was constantly on the minds of the cast and crew as they were making the movie, and she says that comes through on the screen.
