Disney will not recast the late Chadwick Boseman's character T'Challa in the upcoming "Black Panther 2" movie, the company announced on Thursday.

On Twitter, the company announced that they would honor Boseman's "legacy and portrayal" by not recasting his character.

Instead, the movie will "explore the world of Wakanda & the rich characters introduced in the first film."

The movie will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler.

"Black Panther 2" is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022.

Boseman died on Aug. 28 in Los Angeles after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43.
