What if T’Challa was Star-Lord?

Unfortunately, and after the death of Boseman, the initial plans were truncated; This is how the director himself explains it: “I don’t know if he knew, but there were plans for Star-Lord T’Challa to become his own series with that universe and that team and all that. We were all very excited. We know he would have loved it too. And then, you know, he passed away, and all of that is in limbo. So who knows? Maybe someday”, admite Andrews.
Also, the director of What If …? explains that the dubbing work of Chadwick Boseman came about shortly before his passing, a project with which the actor was delighted: Chadwick recorded his Star-Lord T’Challa footage before. But in the last episodes he appeared sporadically, and it was a long time before we had him again. It wasn’t long after the last recording when he passed away. I think it was a few months, or a month. Neither of us knew, obviously. But we get it in time to have everything. I think he was also trying to make an effort because T’Challa was very important to him, and also this new version of Star-Lord T’Challa it was very important to him. He liked it ”, concludes the director of What If …?
A second season of What If…?, including the missed episode of Gamora and Tony Stark that could not be finished in time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
