Disney+ is a powerful streaming service simply for having all things Disney available to stream, but slowly the service is adding even more original content that, while we might not immediately associate with the Disney brand, is making Disney+ a must own product. July was already going to be a huge month with the debut of the filmed production of the Broadway musical Hamilton set to arrive in only a few days. But now July is going to end just as big, with a new film arriving July 31, Black is King, written, produced and directed by Beyonce. And it looks amazing.
Black is King is a new movie that is being called a “visual album” and based on the brand new teaser, it’s certainly difficult to categorize. The trailer is full of images, ideas and concepts. It doesn’t exactly give us a story, at least not in the traditional sense, but what we get is certainly powerful. It needs to be seen to be understood.
