Am I The Only One Not Excited About Beyonce’s New ‘Black Is King’ Film Coming To Disney+?

Yeah, That’s Right! I’m Not Excited For Beyonce’s New Film ‘Black Is King’ Coming To Disney Plus On 7/31

I’d say sorry for that, but I’m not sorry about it either. When I first heard the news a few days ago I didn’t run to check it out.

I’m not a super fan, and I think some of her hype is overrated.

But I finally watched the trailer for Beyonce’s new Disney Plus film and …

I’m still not excited.

I mean, I’m happy she’s highlighting Black culture, but there’s nothing exciting about this new film. And the trailer didn’t help one bit.

Her visuals though are always stunning, and as a fellow Virgo, I know how much time she puts into her craft.

I also love how everything is always so perfect. I loved watching Homecoming. I’m just not excited about this new Black is King film.

I think folks often just throw Beyonce into the mix because they know she has a huge following and they’ll go wherever she goes. But I need more convincing! So hopefully there’s gonna be another trailer. One that includes her music and truly shows off this film because I’m not excited just because it’s Bey.

More about the Black is King film

black is king film

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 July 31, 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 inform and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken has an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future.

Black Is King will be on Disney+ 7/31.
