Friday Disney unveiled a Black Panther mural honoring the late Chadwick Boseman. Boseman who will always be remembered for portraying black heroes like Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall and Black Panther passed away last month after a long battle with colon cancer.



The mural titled “King Chad” was painted by artist Nikkolas Smith and according to Walt Disney’s Imagineering Instagram Smith left the following inscription on the painting:

“As a former Disney Imagineer, I had the honor of working on a major children’s hospital initiative and Avengers Campus as my final two assignments. Seeing Chadwick’s heart for people in-person, and later discovering his courageous battle with cancer, I was inspired to create this tribute to honor his life and legacy. To us, he was and will always be T’Challa. Long Live The King.”


Here are a few images of the mural now located in Downtown Disney:
