You can call "Black Panther" a blockbuster, a mega-success or a billion-dollar film and you wouldn’t be wrong -- but Forest Whitaker is calling it a movement.
And it's one he couldn’t be prouder to be a part of.
"I feel really proud to be involved with it," the actor affirms. "It's been really exciting to see people's response."
And if you think -- after several years in the industry -- Forest was numb to the excitement of being part of such a juggernaut, think again!
(Watch the video above to hear him gush about the "amazing" director and star-studded cast!)
In fact, when Rach asked him about working with first-time film actor Winston Duke, Forest recalled the feeling he got while witnessing Winston's incredible first fight scene.
"He's amazing," Forest says of Winston. "I remember when he was doing the first fight scene, it was electrifying."
"When he came outside [and] they were all chanting as they were coming down [the mountain]," he continues. "It was really powerful."
(So, YES, he still has "pinch-me" moments.)
We don't know about you, but we got chills just hearing about it!
