Actress Whoopi Goldberg is urging Disney to honor Chadwick Boseman by building a Wakanda theme park.

Boseman portrayed Black Panther/King T'Challa in the Marvel blockbuster superhero movie "Black Panther."

The character ruled over Wakanda, a fictitious kingdom in Africa.

The actor's 4-year battle with colon cancer ended Friday, his family said in a statement.

On Sunday, "The View" co-host posted on Twitter to call on Disney to not build "another Frozen land BUT what we could use is Wakonda (Sic)."

Last year, Disney announced that the "Avengers" Campus would open in 2022 at Disney California Adventure park.

While Disney hasn't mentioned anything about a Wakanda theme park, visitors at the "Avengers" park will find "heroic encounters throughout the campus, including Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super Heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and Iron Man."
