T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.
Rondavels (modern buildings that resemble African huts) are seen at the tops of Wakanda's skyscrapers, inspired by the mountains at Blyde River Canyon, South Africa.
Tell me a story, baba.
N'Jobu: What story, my son?
N'Jadaka: About home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, ...
Since Wakanda is a landlocked African country hidden due to their technological advancements and isolated from the rest of the world, and since it was implied that Erik Killmonger, despite having Wakandan heritage, was raised in the United States for most of his life; it doesn't make sense how Killmonger could have perfectly navigated his way to Wakanda by airplane - from South Korea, no less. Wakanda is known to the rest of the world as an isolated poor third world country, only the technologically advanced parts of the country are hidden. The BBC news at the start of the movie mentions Wakanda and the King of Wakanda was killed at the UN in Captain America Civil War. Also, recall that Killmonger spent plenty of time with Ulysses Klaue, who had successfully been in and out of Wakanda, combined with the fact that he knew quite a bit about Wakanda from his father N'Jobu.
N'Jobu's fairytale prologue and part of the closing credits are a sequence of Wakandan nanite displays.
Each credit in the closing credits has a different image to represent the cast/crew's role in the film.
