Late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman was honored with a special tribute in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District.

The actor was remembered with a mural by concept artist Nikkolas Smith, a former Disney Imagineer.


Nikkolas wrote in his post: “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.”


Boseman passed away in August at the age of 43 after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. He was remembered far and wide by fans, directors, producers and actors.
