As you know, the official slogan of Wakanda is "Wakanda forever." Well, that also applies to the past as well, because fans recently decided to have some fun by combining the highly successful Black Panther with a little bit of nostalgia.

A week ago, Instagram user @takemymoneystudios posted a mock poster of the film's 1990s version, starring Wesley Snipes as T'Challa and Denzel Washington as Erik Killmonger.



Get into this perfect re-casting, though!

You might recall that Snipes was originally slated to star in a Black Panther film in the '90s, but the film never materialized. 

What happened after that poster made its way onto Twitter was ... black excellence, of course:

Jamie Foxx wouldve played killmonger in the mid 2000s. I can't be the only one that felt him in Michael's performance https://t.co/O3fYpHF8hp— Jai (@royalswerve) April 4, 2018



Why are these so perfect?

And the social media production crew didn't stop at casting. Folks were chiming in on wardrobe, too! Because, of course, fashion is a huge part of the '90s.



Oh and by the way, @takemymoneystudios didn't stop at the original poster: the account also features solo character posters, including Lisa Bonet as Shuri!








Homie went above and beyond! Because ... Wakanda forever
