Disney and Parkwood Entertainment have released a new trailer for Beyoncé’s Black Is King, an upcoming visual album and film that was inspired by The Lion King.
Black Is King is scheduled to drop on Disney+ on Friday, July 31, and Beyoncé wrote, directed, produced, and is starring in the project.
“Black Is King is a labor of love,” Beyoncé wrote on IG late last month when she shared the teaser trailer. “It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose.”
