Posted: Updated:

Some fans of the new movie, "Black Panther," got to meet the director in a surprise visit.

Ryan Coogler made an appearance in California. He showed up at a special screening for kids and took part in a panel.

Parents who took their children to see the movie said the experience is more than entertainment.

"Both of them want to be black panther all of a sudden, it's a beautiful thing. They get to see a young black super hero, instead of just seeing superman and batman all the time, they see the black panther, somebody that actually looks like them. It's a beautiful thing."

Black Panther is ranked as the fifth-highest movie debut ever. The film grossed $192 million in its opening weekend.
