If you didn’t purchase the DVD disc when it was released in January, AND you have a Netflix account with the Instant Watch feature, you can now stream Reginald Hudlin’s Black Panther motion comic/animated series – Marvel Knights Animation: Black Panther.
The 12-episode series was to debut on BET in 2009, but never did, because, as Hudlin himself stated, BET wouldn’t air it because they felt is was too male and young for their core audience. Each episode is only about 10 minutes long, for a total of roughly 120 minutes, or about a 2-hour feature.
The all-star cast of actors giving voice to the animated characters include Djimon Hounsou as the titular character, aka T’challa, with Kerry Washington, Jill Scott, Alfre Woodard and Carl Lumbly filling out the supporting roles.
I still haven’t seen much of the series, except for a clip here and there, which left me underwhelmed and uninterested in seeing the rest; but, since I do have a Netflix account, with Instant Watch, I’ll give it a look some time later. It’s now on my queue. I believe you can also find it all on YouTube by the way…
