Disney has made available the 20/20 special Chadwick Boseman: Tribute for a King on their Disney+ streaming platform, less than a week after it aired on ABC. You can find the 42 minute special under the Black Panther movie, as one of its special features.
The special aired two days after Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away of colon cancer. He was 43 years old.
Disney describes A Tribute For a King as:
Celebrate and honor Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman’s life, legacy, and career, and the cultural imprint he made on and off-screen. Hosted by Robin Roberts, this special features tributes from celebrities, political figures, and fans across the world, special words from those who starred alongside him and knew Boseman best, and shines a light on the medical condition he privately battled.
Many of Boseman’s Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars shared their thoughts and paid their respects to Boseman following the news. A Tribute For a King features interviews from the likes of Forest Whitaker and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.
