There’s something magical about the feeling of opening a Happy Meal and finding your prize.

Starting November 1st, fans can experience a whole new set of feels with a Happy Meal inspired by Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."

The new movie hits theatres on Nov. 11.

Each Happy Meal includes one of ten “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” superhero toys based on characters from the movie, from fan favorites like Shuri and Okoye to newcomers like Namor and Ironheart.

“The first Black Panther movie inspired a new generation of Marvel lovers – and that’s because of the powerful story it told, brought to life by an incredibly talented cast,” said Jennifer Healan, VP of U.S. Marketing, Brand Content and Engagement at McDonald’s.

“It set a whole new standard for representation on the big screen. And now, we’re excited to bring that experience to our restaurants and help fans see and celebrate their inner hero with this new Happy Meal – because seeing is believing," said Healan.

It will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide while supplies last.

From fan favorites to marketing initiatives designed to help drive representation, McDonald's is committed to lifting up the voices of the communities they serve through programs like:

  •  Future 22, which recognized 22 Black visionaries driving meaningful change in communities across the country through the Black and Positively Golden® platform.
  •  Spotlight Dorado, which helped emerging Latino filmmakers produce short films to boost representation in the film industry.
  •  Marcus Graham Project partnership, an internal initiative to help diversify the marketing talent pipeline by creating opportunities for marketers of color.
