Each of the new Meals includes one of 10 “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” super hero toys based on characters from the new movie. Favorites from the first movie like Shuri and Okoye are induced as toys as well as new characters like Namor and Ironheart. The toys are available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide, while supplies last.

And now, we’re excited to bring that experience to our restaurants and help fans see and celebrate their inner hero with this new Happy Meal – because seeing is believing.”
