Beyoncé Releasing Visual Album on Disney Plus

In a surprise, Disney Plus announced a new visual album from Beyoncé — Black Is King!

Inspired by The Lion King, Black Is King will be coming to the streaming service next month. Black Is King, written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé, will premiere globally on Disney Plus on July 31, 2020.

That’s just after the one-year anniversary of the theatrical release of Disney’s The Lion King remake, for which Queen Bey voiced Nala (and which launched on Disney Plus in January).

The film is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, released last year in conjunction with the Disney pic, and stars the album’s featured artists and some special guest appearances. A press release said the film “reimagines the lessons of The Lion King for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.” Continuing: “Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience.”
