Dis­ney+ Premiered the Visu­al Album Glob­ally on July 31, 2020

Park­wood Enter­tain­ment, in asso­ci­ation with Dis­ney+, announced and deb­uted the teas­er video for the visu­al album “Black Is King” writ­ten, dir­ec­ted and exec­ut­ive pro­duced by 24-time Grammy® Award-win­ner Bey­on­cé. “Black is King” will premiere glob­ally on Dis­ney+ on 31st July, 2020 and will arrive on the heels of the one-year anniversary of the release of Disney’s glob­al phe­nomen­on “The Lion King.”

This visu­al album from Bey­on­cé reima­gines the les­sons of “The Lion King” for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns. The film was in pro­duc­tion for one year with a cast and crew that rep­res­ent diversity and con­nectiv­ity.

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.

Based on the music of “The Lion King: The Gift,” and star­ring the album’s fea­tured artists and some spe­cial guest appear­ances, “Black Is King” is a cel­eb­rat­ory mem­oir for the world on the Black exper­i­ence. Videos for “My Power,” “Mood 4 Eva,” and “Brown Skin Girl” are extra­vag­ances of eleg­ance and soul. The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cul­tures and shared gen­er­a­tion­al beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordin­ary gift and a pur­pose­ful future.
