On the one-year anniversary of Disney’s release of the live-action remake of The Lion King, ​Beyoncé is releasing visual album Black Is King, based on her soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift. The film, which was in production for a year, tells the story of a young Black boy and his journey toward becoming king. Along the way, he relies on advice from his long-departed ancestors as well as his father.

Beyoncé wrote, directed and executive produced the film, which also stars Beyoncé along with some of the album’s featured performers and special guests.

​Beyoncé‘s Black Is King streams on Disney+ on July 31.
