The film, which will premiere globally on Disney+ on July 31, is based on the music of 'The Lion King: The Gift.'
Blue Ivy Carter has stolen the show in her mom, Beyoncé's, new trailer for Black Is King. The 8-year-old daughter of the superstar and JAY-Z makes a sweet -- and fabulous -- cameo in the latest teaser for the Disney+ special.
In the clip, Blue is seen smiling wide, wearing an elegant white off-the-shoulder dress with a pearl necklace. Her hair is up in a bun and has a gold and pearl crown. Her moment comes around the 0:51 mark.
"To live without reflection for so long might make you wonder if you even truly exist," Bey begins before a crew of hot pink and orange-dressed people are seen. It then goes into new scenes from the forthcoming Disney+ visual album.
Black Is King is based on the music from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack, which was released last year. "The film reimagines the lessons from the 2019 blockbuster for today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns," Disney said. Many artists featured on The Lion King: The Gift album will also make appearances on Black Is King.
The film includes full-length videos for the songs "Already," "Brown Skin Girl," "Mood 4 Eva" and "My Power."
"Black Is King is finally here. I'm so excited you guys get to watch it tonight on Disney+. It's been a year in the making," Beyoncé said in a message on Good Morning America on Thursday. "I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors and actors and creatives from all over the world to reimagine the story of The Lion King."
"The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, beautiful natural settings and raw new talent, but it all started in my backyard," she continued. "So from my house to Johannesburg to Ghana to London to Belgium to the Grand Canyon -- it was truly a journey to bring this film to life."
"And my hope for this film is that it shifts the global perception of the word Black, which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me," she added. "But Black Is King means Black is regal and rich in history in purpose and in lineage. I hope y'all love it, I hope you enjoy it and I hope y'all see it tonight."
The visual album was in production for one year, filming in New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, London and Belgium. Beyoncé is credited as writer, director and executive producer on Black Is King, with a slew of frequent collaborators also attached.
