Beyoncé Unveils Surprise Visual Album 'Black Is King,' Set to Debut on Disney+

“A celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience.”

Beyoncé is set to release a new visual album dubbed Black Is King on Disney+. Written, directed and executive produced by Queen B herself, the film is based on her Lion King-inspired album, The Lion King: The Gift. According to Variety, Disney and Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment said in a statement:

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 highlights the timeless lessons of The Lion King, which Beyoncé wants to pass on to “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.” Additionally, the visual album honors the stories of Black families throughout history, and follows the tale of a young king’s “transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity.”

Watch the one-minute teaser above. Black Is King will premiere globally on July 31 on Disney+.
