Black Is King debuted on Disney+ this morning and viewers noticed Beyonce’s kids – Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir – first. In fact, some may even say the Carter kids stole the spotlight from their mom.
Blue Ivy Carter certainly made her presence known in the visual film. The 8-year-old sang the introduction to ‘Brown Skin Girl,’ which had viewers excited to see more. Sir and Rumi also garnered notoriety for their part in the film. The twins are rarely seen in public, which is why fans could not get enough of them in Black Is King.
Beyonce has quite the celebrity lineup in her latest movie. Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland and Naomi Campbell are three of many A-list stars who make appearances in the Disney film.
Black Is King is the re-imagination of Disney’s The Lion King, which is the coming of age story of Simba, King of Pride Rock. According to the Disney+ website, “The film was in production for one year with a cast and crew that represent diversity and connectivity.”
“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored in a tale about a young king’s transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity. His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father’s teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne. These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power.”
You can stream Black Is King on Disney+ or Hulu, if you have the bundle package, today. Stay tuned for more Beyonce family news!
