Recalling that “Black Is King” is available on the Disney + platform.
The film is a celebration of the first anniversary of ‘The Lion King: The Gift’, the artist’s reimagined work for the live-action remake of ‘The Lion King’ (2019).
Check out the official synopsis below:
This Beyoncé visual album reimagines the lessons of “The Lion King” for today’s young kings and queens who seek their crown. The film was in production for a year with a cast and crew representing diversity and connectedness. The travels of black families through time are honored in a tale about a young king and his transcendent journey through love, betrayals and self-identity. His ancestors helped him walk the path of his destiny and, with the teachings of his father and his childhood sweetheart, he acquired the virtues necessary to claim his home and his throne.
