‘Black Panther’ director Ryan Coogler’s emotional letter thanking fans will make you happy cry

‘Black Panther’ Opens With Huge Box Office Numbers Ryan Coogler

Ryan Coogler and Black Panther

Ryan Coogler, the director of Marvel blockbuster Black Panther has written a love letter to fans that is sure to make everyone who loved the film love him too.

Coogler’s letter is so good that we have to post the whole thing in its entirety.

I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but I will try.

Filmmaking is a team sport. And our team was made up amazing people from all over the world who believed in this story. Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a film about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent.

Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out of this strong. It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film. But to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theaters- often moved me and my wife to tears.

For the people who bought out theaters, who posted on social about how lit the film would be, bragged about our awesome cast, picked out outfits to wear, and who stood in line in theaters all over the world- all before even seeing the film…

To the press who wrote about the film for folks who hadn’t yet seen it, and encouraged audiences to come out…

And to the young ones, who came out with their parents, with their mentors, and with their friends…

Thank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: The opportunity to share this film that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you.

Sincerely, Ryan Coogler

See? You’re happy crying, aren’t you?

Black Panther might be a fictional movie about a kingly character and country on the continent of Africa, but in truth and in fact, any student of history, of impartial mind, will tell you that thousands of years ago royal civilizations flourished throughout Africa, i.e., Egypt and Ethiopia, which suffered not at all by comparison with those on other, we may be descendants of slaves; but that era of bondage was a relatively recent episode in our long and majestic history: wherefore we are also descendants of kings and queens, as represented by the Empire of Ethiopia. Black people, white people, humanity, know yourself!

It's so nice to see black folks play something different in movies besides playing slaves, servants or gangsters in the hood.

Al3xa please preach at least you are focus especially about the secret laws you have to realize negros are too busy being cool and following what ever white people say so they have no idea what's going on around them nor will they try to find out, as soon as they get caught up in a box they start to cry, complaint and make excuses and expect others to sacrifice and help them out,  the sad part the signs are there

Comment by Al3xa on February 19, 2018 at 8:01am
A movie based on a mythical comical story(proud comic book fan) actually bring black people together, despite all the racial abuses and deaths we’re still facing,and despite this distraction, new laws are secretly being created that’s gonna fck us up sooner or later. Earlier in the year, most of these black people was focusing on liteskin verse darkskin, how Africans and African Americans are two different people. The set up is real.
Comment by mr1stroke on February 19, 2018 at 1:38am

With movies like that just may be negros can start taking some pride in their selves not just try to be cool but mean something to your race have something to offer to this society and still be cool instead of all that nonsense, gangs and drug dealers, living with your mom at 30 years old no jobs no education multiple baby mama's, all that ain't cool
