One of the most interesting aspects of Disney+ is how the streaming service has paved the way for anime. This was seen in the Star Wars: Visions project, with shorts featuring the likes of Ronin combining a feudal-era Japan with a galaxy besieged by the Empire. The various episodes felt really cosmopolitan: substance and style with a riveting anime vibe.
This showed that outside of mainstream animation, especially the western style that Warner Bros. is implementing with movies like legion of superheroes — House of Mouse is really looking to be more diverse, pursue a distinctive visual aesthetic, and tell more inclusive stories. Coincidentally, after Namor and Talokan debuted in Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverDisney+ could also capitalize on its energy with an anime, making up for past missteps with the X Men Y Glutton anime adaptations
A Disney+ anime about Namor may detail the lore
Now the central themes of wakandan forever they have to do with heritage, legacy and culture. But it’s not just Shuri fighting against tradition and wanting to focus on science as she becomes the new Panther in the African kingdom; Namor tells many nuanced stories as he sheds light on how the vibranium-mutated Talokan came to be centuries before.
Therefore, with so much story missing, an anime can detail exactly what transpired from the moment Namor’s family went to sea. This would allow Disney+ to add to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, detailing Talokan building weapons like their artificial sun, learning to connect with the whales, forging their underwater society and pyramids, while painting, procreating and maintaining their stories.
This anime would basically be an origin of your civilization and it would expand on Black Panther 2, but without the budget constraints. After all, the anime offers unlimited possibilities, which makes the empire even more imaginative and magnificent. Furthermore, the pulse of pop culture is much different these days with anime being much more accepting of anime, and with the MCU being such a huge creative vehicle today, it’s an easy sell compared to years ago when Marvel tried their hand at the anime.
A Namor Anime May Expand On New Talokan Quest
The actor Tenoch Huerta has requested a Namor spin-off, but if that doesn’t happen, this anime can not only tell the story of the king when he became ruler, but it could also connect to side stories and missions in the future from Marvel Studios. Namor has already entered into an alliance with Wakanda, but it is awkward as he hopes to manipulate them into attacking the surface. As a result, an anime can dive into the directives set for Namora and Attuma, especially since they seem set on stabbing the king in the back.
More of them traversing the seas, plotting a coup, inspecting the CIA, spying on Wakanda, or exploring the Celestial Tiamut in the Indian Ocean would once again save a ton of money compared to a live-action series. In this way, since they are a war-loving people, Marvel Studios can unleash the Talokan soldiers in a dynamic and bloody fashion against new enemies, all to keep their secrets quiet while a sequel is in the works.
This style, from what has been seen in programs like chainsaw man, six hands, boruto Y naruto — would add so much fluidity to the Talokan, making them more intimidating and a true standout among contemporaries. Ultimately, an anime adds a bit more flair and beauty to the sea dwellers, setting them apart from their peers at DC, especially by connecting with eastern fans (manga and anime), while reminding audiences that Disney is a brand. proactive and creative who loves to take risks with her appearance.
