The late Chadwick Boseman will forever be a part of Disney, not only because of his work as an actor but also with a new mural.
The mural, titled King Chad,” was done by Nikkolas Smith and in the piece you see Boseman giving the “Wakanda Salute” to a young child wearing a Black Panther mask and what appears to be a hospital gown. Which is fitting for Boseman since he did lots of visits to young cancer patients during his life.
Boseman died last month after a bout with pancreatic cancer at the age of 43.

This one is special. My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney. 🐾 It is a full circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children’s Hospital project and the Avengers Campus. To millions of kids, T’Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman. I’m so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick’s life and purpose in this way. I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist. @waltdisneyimagineering @disney @marvelstudios @disneyland 🐾✨ #LongLiveTheKing #KingChad #WakandaForever #Phambili #DowntownDisney #BlackPanther #ChadwickBoseman #RIPChadwick #WDI
