Brief Synopsis:
The people of Wakanda fight to protect their home from intervening world powers as they mourn the death of King T'Challa.

The Midnight Angel Edition reintegrates 4 new deleted scenes, and 10 more minutes of footage, as well as restructing the ending of the film for a more fluid finale, with the mid-credits now being attached to the rest of the film.
Intention:
Sitting in the theatre, there felt like there was some character stuff missing with Okoye and Ross, and it was good to see more for them on the Blu-Ray.

The mid-credits smelt suspiciously like Spider-Man: Far From Home, as it was simply the 2nd half of the last scene before the credits. I wanted to reintegrate that into the main film.
Other Sources:
Black Panther (2018) Score by Ludwig Göransson - Busan Skyline, and Wakanda were used to bridge the Border Tribe scene and where the mid-credits scene was, respectively

I love it too the Theatrical cut of Wakanda Forever, But I noticed some scenes that left me some questions and got some editing error, then I watched this version of the movie, and now I get it why they cut, but for me, it explained more of how the story goes with the cast, and it editing looked perfectly, felt like a complete version, so I recommend , both of the Theatrical Cut and the Midnight Angel Edition.

I must preface by saying that I really liked the theatrical cut of Wakanda Forever. I felt the story warranted the longer run time to adequately develop the incredible ensemble cast. This extended version highlights the strengths of this ensemble even more! Only 10 minutes are added, but they provide much in giving Agent Ross more to do (making his arrest more justified in the end) and providing stronger motivations for Okoye, also helping strengthen her arc to becoming the Midnight Angel.

A couple of the added scenes have some noticeable green screen work done, but I'm willing to look past that for what they ultimately add to the overall story.

I love this edit, and it immediately has become my go to version of Wakanda Forever!
