Composer Ludwig Göransson shared the following about Wakanda Forever Prologue:
“This Prologue is a first aural glimpse of Wakanda Forever.”
“The sound world of the film began with long trips to Mexico and Nigeria. We spent the days working with traditional musicians who informed us about the cultural, social and historical contexts of their music. We created with them a catalog of instrumental and vocal recordings that explored traditional and non-traditional uses of their musical material.”
During the nights of these trips, we conducted recording sessions with contemporary artists related to the characters and the thematic material explored in the film. Using Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole’s script as a model, along with recordings from traditional musicians, we began to build a musical vocabulary for the characters, storylines and cultures of Talocan and Wakanda.”
“The instrumental score and soundtrack for Wakanda Forever grew organically out of these sessions and workshops. They are conceived as a singular entity to create an immersive, immersive sound world for the film.”
Yes, you wrote right, it’s Talocan
In addition to this reference from the composer of Wakanda Forever Prologue, who talks about Talocan and not Atlantis, on Hasbro’s website, in the description of his Marvel Legends Namor figure for Wakanda Forever, it can be read: “The ruler of Talocan, an ancient civilization hidden in the depths of the ocean, Namor will stop at nothing to protect his people”. (“Ruler of Talocan, an ancient civilization hidden in the depths of the ocean, Namor will stop at nothing to protect the people from him.”)
There is no official information, but the word “Talocan” reminds Nahuatl “Tlalocan”, ‘the place of the nectar of the earth’. For the Aztecs, it was the paradise ruled by Tlaloc, god of rain, and it was located in the eastern region of the Universe.
