Who’s in Black Is King? Where have you seen them previously? Here’s a complete guide about the Beyoncé‘s highly-predictable Disney+ musical.
Disney +’s 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 cautiously curated by Beyoncé herself. Disney+ movie released in July 2020.
In a statement, Disney and Parkwood Entertainment said that the movie is a celebratory biography for the world on the Black experience. The film is a story for the ages that tells and reconstruct the present—a gathering of cultures and shared generational faiths. A story of how the people left broken has a remarkable contribution and a purposeful future.

Disney has said that Black Is King stars a cast that represents diversity and connectivity. This involves new talent, rising stars, and huge built names.
We now know that Beyoncé’s husband and regular collaborator Jay-Z will be seen in the movie, as well as Academy Award-winning actor Lupita Nyong’ o (Black Panther).
The trailer further gave us our initial glimpse at Kelly Rowland‘s role in the movie. She is an old friend of Beyoncé’s from their time working together in Destiny’s Child.
