Black Panther hits theaters this Friday, and to mark the occasion UK casting agency Looks Like Me has recreated the film’s posters with one little twist – they’ve dressed up kids as the characters portrayed by Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman and more. And the results are truly inspiring.
Titled “The Hero in us all,” the photo series aims to show the power of representation.

We only hope we’ll see more images in this vein once Black Panther arrives in theaters. Until then, check out the amazing recreations above. And be sure to check out the recently unveiled Hot Toys Black Panther action figure.
