Build-A-Bear goes to Wakanda with Black Panther plush
Both bears and panthers may be fearsome animals, but when you cross the two, the result is downright cuddly.
With Black Panther hitting theaters Friday, Build-A-Bear has launched a new teddy bear based on the titular superhero. In the film, the high-tech suit worn by T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) may be made out of impossibly strong Vibranium, but the Build-A-Bear version looks considerably softer and more huggable.
Ryan Coogler’s addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett, has earned rave reviews and already set records for advance ticket sales.
