M’Baku, one of Wakanda’s fiercest warriors, has made his way to Disney California Adventure’s Avengers Campus to teach The Way of the Jabari. You can watch the entire experience in our video and read on to learn more. This article may contain spoilers for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
As M’Baku exits the Avengers HQ to begin the presentation, he interacts with the crowd while drumbeats are heard in the area.
When we visited, the crowd was very excited to see the Jabari chief chanting before he introduced himself.
The show begins with him explaining that the Jabari are the only tribe in Wakanda who not only rely on vibranium as a source of energy, but draw from a wood sacred to Hanuman, the monkey deity worshiped by the Jabari.
After getting the crowd to show off their chants, M’Baku proceeds to explain “the way of the Jabari,” strength through unity and respect for the past.
He is extremely energetic and draws on the incredible enthusiasm of the crowd.
Next, he pays tribute to the new Black Panther, who conveniently appears upstairs on the balcony.
He then selects volunteers from the crowd: two to provide animal sounds that the crowd repeats, and one to play the drum and keep the rhythm.
Eventually the tempo picks up and a successful chant is completed at the end of the show.
This is just an offering at the park to celebrate the debut of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. As part of the Festival of Holidays, a new marketplace, Flavors of Wakanda, features dishes from across Africa. In addition, guests at Shawarma Palace can also try a Wakandan wrap with fried pork. Don’t forget to wash it all down with drinks served in a new Shuri-inspired glove or a Pym Tasting Lab giant Wakandan Coca-Cola can. And before you go, be sure to check out the Black Panther Celebration Garden, which honors the superhero with art and sculptures centered around a planter containing the mysterious heart-shaped herb that gives the Black Panther its enhanced abilities. All of these special offers are expected to run until January 8, 2023.
