Beyoncé gave us Black Parade for Juneteenth and now she is about to make her Disney debut at the end of July!
Queen Bey dropped the trailer for her 2nd visual album (Lemonade was her first) “Black Is King” inspired by her time on the Lion King set.
Written and directed by the Queen herself, “Black Is King” will premiere globally on Disney+ on July 31, 2020, and will arrive on the heels of the one-year anniversary of the release of Disney’s “The Lion King.” (her marketing team is BOMB!)
Here’s the story, according to the film’s official synopsis:
“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored in a tale about a young king’s transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity. His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father’s teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne. These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power. ‘Black Is King’ is an affirmation of a grand purpose, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.”
