Black Panther: 400-year-old Nigerian language inspired Wakanda’s language

Hannah Beachler, Black Panther’s production designer, says a 400-year-old Nigerian language was one of the two languages that inspired Wakanda’s language.

Wakanda is a fictional country and was used as location in some parts of the movie, Black Panther.

Nsibidi, a language formerly used in parts of Cross River, was used repeatedly through the course of the movie as the language of the fictional Wakanda kingdom.

The process of bringing Nsibidi to life took Beachler  six months.

The movie has grossed over $700 million worldwide as at Sunday.
