At SDCC this year, Marvel put much of its focus on TV and animation. At the Marvel Animation panel, several announcements were made, including the introduction of a new Black Panther series called Avengers: Black Panther's Quest, and stars James Mathis III (T'Challa) and Daisy Lightfoot (Shuri) were introduced. Disney also dropped a new trailer for the series in which Black Panther is in Wakanda fighting Kraven.

We sat down with both Lightfoot and Mathis to talk about what it's like working on one of the most popular character franchises that Marvel has ever had and how T’Challa and Shuri in Black Panther's Quest differ from their counterparts in this year's live-action Black Panther.

Mathis has actually voiced Black Panther several times, including in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (2013-2018) and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Black Panther - Trouble in Wakanda, and both actors have extensive video game voice credits.

Watch the video below to learn more about the show and how you'll be able to visit Wakanda every week this fall starting September 23.
