1 INT. SHURI’S LAB - WDG - 2025 (ONE YEAR AFTER ENDGAME) 1
SHURI (20s) storms into her lab moving with frantic urgency.
LIGHT PROJECTIONS of several DOUBLE HELIX DNA MODELS are
arranged through the lab like pillars.
WDG SCIENTISTS work nervously.

Shuri takes control of the holograms as they appear.
The Double Helix turns from GREEN to RED. The WDG Scientist
Shuri’s eyes dart desperately over the holographic model.
GRIOT, what is the confidence rate?
GRIOT, the lab’s A.I. responds over speakers.
Recreating the Heart-Shaped Herb is
my last chance.
King T’Challa’s heart rate has
fallen to 25 bpm.

Shuri adjusts an equation and the Helix Model turns red.
What’s the confidence rate?
Shuri runs over to a 3D printer, where lasers begin to build
a mature HEART SHAPED HERB SEED.
The synthetic herb will have a less
than 30% chance of effectiveness.
I DON’T CARE!
Come on, come on, come on.
Tears well in Shuri’s eyes as the herb is printed. She pulls
it out and turns for the door, but stops as she sees RAMONDA
standing in the doorway... her face tear soaked.
Griot, what is my brother’s heart
Shuri waits for a response... nothing.
Your brother is with the ancestors.
Shuri stares back at her mother, heartbroken.

Shuri sees this with everyone dancing around her and
something changes in her face, she moves towards the casket
and holds it one last time.
She looks up as the casket continues to rise. The rest of the
Wakandans watch as the casket tilts into a vertical position
with the life-size panther seal giving a Wakanda Forever
The Wakandans all salute T’Challa, holding their arms to
their chests for him, one last time.
The casket enters the iris of the Royal Talon Fighter, and
the aircraft rockets off towards the Hall Of Kings where he
will be laid to rest.
The Wakandans release the salute in unison, all except Shuri,
who still holds her arms tight to her chest. Head down.

Under the logo we HEAR global reactions to T’Challa’s death:
“We are profoundly saddened by the shocking news of King
T’Challa’s death.” “This is a day of mourning for all
nations.” “We lost another giant.” “With his words and
actions, King T’Challa touched the world. He will never be
forgotten.” “He was not only a noble man but an inspiring
hero so we celebrate his image in all of us.”

UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE
Mr. Chairperson, I believe I speak
for all of the member states when I
say, I am deeply disappointed by
Wakanda’s failure to stand by the
promises made after the blip by the
late King T’Challa. Promises to
participate in global efforts to
tackle international challenges, to
share resources, technology and
full technical cooperation
Promises, Mr. Chairperson, that the
Queen of Wakanda is failing to
deliver on. The United States
shares a deep concern over the lack
of Wakanda’s transparency and urges
meaningful dialogue in consultation
with key partners and Wakanda to
strengthen efforts to achieve our
commitments to international
development and security. Thank
you, Mr. Chairperson.
The Other Dignitaries nod in agreement. Ramonda looks back
silently and strongly.
CHAIRPERSON OF UN

of the United States of America for
that statement. I now give the

vibranium has limitless potential
as a renewable energy source. And
yet Queen Ramonda has still
declined to open access to the
material through international
trade, or any of Wakanda’s
philanthropic ventures. We also
have information that vibranium can
be used to make weapons of mass
destruction. It is a substance that
does not trigger any known metal
detector. It could be smuggled. It
is a direct threat to the global
security environment and the

The Secretary of State of France continues.
SECRETARY OF STATE OF FRANCE (SUBTITLE)
I would like to put the question to
her majesty. “Why is there so much
secrecy around this particular
resource?” “If her nation’s
intentions really are to help other
nations, why is that help only
extended to certain groups of
people in those nations?” And “what
of our intelligence in France, in
Belgium, and in the United States,
that vibranium has properties that
can be weaponized?”
Mr. Chairperson, Wakanda has
deliberately chosen, in a recurrent
manner, to defy our collective
security architecture. The
durability of our international
security would be at stake if we
were to overlook the potential
threat of vibranium today. Thank
you, Mr. Chairperson.
CHAIRPERSON OF UN
My thanks to the Minister of
Foreign Affairs for France. I now
give the floor to her majesty,
Ramonda leans into her mic.
Thank you Mr. Chairperson,
Wakanda’s offerings to the global
community do not begin and end with
our nation’s most valuable
resource. It has always been our
policy to never trade vibranium
under any circumstance. Not because
of the dangerous potential of
vibranium, but because of the
dangerous potential of some of the
people in this room.

Ramonda studies Shuri closely.
Do you know what day it is?
Ramonda looks at her.
The date, child.
Shuri thinks on this. And it hits her.
It has been a year.
This hits Shuri very hard. She turns her back to Ramonda who
tries to embrace her, but Shuri steps away.
Ramonda thinks for a beat while Shuri gathers herself.
Do you have anything planned?
Yes. It involves you taking your
mother for a drive.
Yes. And you can leave your kimoyo
beads here. You won’t need them
where we’re going.
Shuri reluctantly takes them off and sets them on the table.
Green Rev. (07/11/21) 20A.
The other ones too, Shuri.
Shuri sighs, then pulls hidden kimoyo beads that look like
earrings from her hers.
Ok Mother, where to?

Scene 9 - Grief and Rituals
49 EXT. RIVERBANK - WAKANDAN BUSH - NIGHT - HOURS LATER 49
Shuri scoops water from a river while Ramonda tends to a
fire. A makeshift shelter sits behind them.
In the River Tribe, we have a
ritual to honor our connection to
those that have passed on.
There is a ritual for everything
here. Somebody has died, you have
to do the ritual. My neighbor hates
me, oh just do ritual. I can’t find
a boyfriend... don’t worry there’s
a ritual for that.
After your father died. I performed
this ritual, with T’Challa by my
side, and Nakia.
Tan Rev. (02/23/22) 23.
Ugh. Don’t mention her name. I know
she hated being here, but that is
no excuse for missing his funeral.
Shuri hands a gourd to Ramonda and looks deep into the flame.
If rituals are pointless to you,
why does it bother you that she
wasn’t there that day? What is a
funeral if not a ritual?
Because that was my brothers’ day.
And for some stupid reason rituals
mattered to him. I don’t have time
for this, Mother. I need to get
back to my lab.
Suddenly, they hear a stirring in the bush. They observe as a
MOTHER ELEPHANT emerges from the brush with her TWO BABIES.
Dangerous and majestic, she gently ambles over to the
riverbank with her young in tow.
The Mother Elephant sprays water from the river onto her
young, bathing them and herself underneath the moonlit night.
Ramonda and Shuri observe this quiet, almost spiritual
You need to sit here with me, and
with yourself. It’s the only way
you are going to heal from the
wound T’Challa’s death caused.
I have healed.
I wake up every day, and I work on
things for Wakanda’s future. Even
though my brother is gone.
I’m not like I was before. I’m
moving forward, even though my
brother is gone.
Tan Rev. (02/23/22) 24.
T’Challa is dead. But that doesn’t
mean he is gone. When Thanos took
you and your brother from me, I had
to lead a wounded nation and a
broken world. But I still took time
in the bush. I wandered until I
found water and I sat, then I did

you now. I found your brother in

firm, like his hand on my shoulder.
And I found you in the chirp of the
sunbirds. It took some time, but
you both were there.
But that wasn’t us, mother. In the
snap, everything that we were,
ceased to exist. Our presence was a
construct of your mind. Brought on

How did you get these?
What does it matter?
These are my clothes. How do they
figure into your ritual?

in the opposite direction as...
Shuri and Ramonda perk up. Ramonda stands and walks down
toward the river where the WATER STIRS.
Mother! What are you doing?
Shuri runs to Ramonda’s side just as A MAN’S head breaches

Of course not.
We have information that the

any record on their identity. I
would prefer to deal with the
scientist as opposed to waging war
on the entire nation.
I imagine Wakanda has more diverse
methods of gathering intelligence,
and could find the identity of the
scientist, and bring them to me.
Why should we help you?
Your former King exposed the power
of vibranium to the world. In
response other nations have begun
scouring the planet for it. We do
not wish to be exposed, but your
choices have compromised us. It is

Shuri rolls her eyes.
It’s you. I haven’t touched them

did it though. It can detect the

Vibranium is all around us. We have

Shuri lies in a HAMMOCK unconscious. She jolts awake and

Shuri reaches for her Kimoyo bead earrings and tries to turn
them on, no dice... they are too far underground. She
exhales in frustration, then looks around more, seeing RIRI,
unconscious in another HAMMOCK.
Shuri paces over to her and gently wakes her. Riri jumps up
in a panic.
What happened? What’s going on?
Riri calm down, we’re okay.
Riri scans the room, and starts hyperventilating.
Don’t tell me to breathe! Where the

In a cave.

The world has taken too much from
you, for you to still be considered
a child. You are the last surviving
member of Wakanda’s most powerful
family. If the Jabari are to remain
engaged in Wakandan politics, it is
in my people’s interest to know
which way your mind is leaning.
The elders are desperate. The city
is vulnerable. If you provide them
with this, they will owe the Jabari
a great debt. There is nothing for
you to lose but space. And there
seems to be plenty of that to be
had in the mountains.
And what of your heart, Princess?
Which way does your heart lean?
I just buried the last person who
truly knew me. My heart was buried

thirst for vengeance. Now if you

It seems that way. But I’ll know

If it fails, I don’t know how we
will have a shot at defeating Namor
and his army. If it works, it means
I was a year too late to save him.
Nakia empathizes with Shuri’s ambivalence.
T’Challa was destined to be with
the ancestors. But you have a
chance now to restore Wakanda’s
protector. It would be the greatest
gift since Bashenga’s discovery.
Shuri takes this in and takes a deep breath.
I’m happy I don’t have to do this

Flames emerge in the structures around the room.

the mountain of a man before her.
Suddenly M’Baku’s arm cocks back and swings it forward, Shuri
does the same and their hands clasp in front of Shuri’s face,
