WASHINGTON (Circa) -- Twitter user @jasmine_blu was visiting Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif. on Sunday when she captured a heartwarming moment that has gone viral.

A man portraying movie character Black Panther is walking in the park getting ready to greet fans when a young boy runs over to him and gives him a hug. The boy and Black Panther exchange a couple of words before the boy goes back running to his parents.

"omg look what happened when i was waiting to meet black panther," @jasmine_blu said in a Twitter post.

The Twitter user is looking for the boy's parents. She wants to send them "a better quality version of this video because it seems like a sweet moment you want to keep forever!"

Many users commented below the posted tweet which has received over 10,000 retweets and 32,000 likes as of Monday evening. They're reiterating their stance that representation matters in movies and television shows.

Later in the day, the Twitter user also showed her followers the moment she met Black Panther herself.

Most recently, it was announced "Black Panther" would play in movie theaters in Saudi Arabia. It is the first time in 35 years the country is opening up movie theaters to the public.
