Black Panther is the movie to watch right now! From the incredible acting, to the intriguing plot, amazing scriptwriting, fun action-packed scenes, underlying messages and more; the movie is most definitely one for the books. 

People across the country -- and world -- have been raving about how great the movie is. From everyday fans who ventured out of their homes and into movie theaters this past President's Day weekend, to celebrities, people were overjoyed by Black Panther and everything that it meant for the future of movies that show a black-dominated cast that completely takes over the industry with massive success.

Two of the many famous faces that congratulated the Black Panther cast was former First Lady Michelle Obama. She tweeted: "Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories." See that below. A star of the movie Lupita Nyong'o even reacted!

One of the biggest movie stars in the entire world Will Smith also congratulated Black Panther for winning big. He posted a special video on IG. It was captioned: "I want to share something that Nelson Mandela said to me... He said, 'With the type of fame that you have attained it is important when you encounter your fans that you — Reach Your Hand Out and let them Feel Your Flesh. You have to prove to them that you are REAL — because people can not aspire to anything they do not believe is Real.' So I say to you, Congratulations! Enjoy this Transcendent Moment. Go into the streets... Touch them... Let them know that you are real!" See that below.
