Disney has unveiled a beautiful Chadwick Boseman tribute mural in its downtown shopping district.
The incredible artwork, done by Nikkolas Smith, shows Chadwick doing the Wakanda Forever salute with a young boy who is wearing a hospital gown and a Black Panther mask.
Nikkolas took to Instagram to share:
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

Chadwick Boseman passed away on August 28 after a private four-year battle with colon cancer.
He was truly a superhero on and off the silver screen.
Wakanda Forever. Rest well, King.
