‘Black is King’ Will End July Off With a Bang!

Okay…if you were excited for Hamilton earlier this month then you will definitely be thrilled to learn that Beyonce is dropping a new visual album inspired by The Lion King called Black is King on July 31. The official trailer dropped today and I have to say…I am more than impressed. Take a look.

Beyoncé has never been afraid to tell stories highlighting and uplifting black people and this is nothing short of beautiful. The trailer is visually stunning and, if it’s anything like The Lion King, it has the chance to be something truly spectacular.

Disney+ is giving me a lot of joy this month and with more movie titles arriving this August, it looks like I’m going to have a great time browsing through the streaming service’s databank.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

I missed getting to see it in the movie theaters but as soon as it arrived on Digital I jumped at the chance to finally see this movie and it wasn’t long before I realized I was going to have a blast.

First off, if you’re wondering whether Spider-Man: Far from Home is better than Spider-Man: Homecoming, in short, it isn’t, but it isn’t worse either. I find that both films are practically the same in style, enjoyment, plot twists, and humor. But that’s actually a good thing considering that Spider-Man: Homecoming was pretty entertaining and clearly stands as one of my ten favorite Marvel movies.
