How to watch Beyoncé visual album Black Is King online
Black Is King will be available to watch exclusively on Disney Plus from Friday 31st July, roughly one year since the release of the “live-action” Lion King remake that she lent her voice to.
Black Is King is a visual album based on music from The Lion King: The Gift, the soundtrack to 2019’s Disney remake that was carefully curated by Beyoncé herself.
In a statement, Disney and Parkwood Entertainment said: “Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience. 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.”
The film was made over the course of a year with work from a diverse cast and crew. Appearances will reportedly be made by some of the artists featured on the album, which included the likes of Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover), Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams.
