South African Famous Faces To Appear In New Beyonce Film Black Is King. The South African acting industry is leveling up to an international standard as our very own famous faces are set to appear in Beyonce‘s recent Disney biopic film Black Is King that will be dropping very soon.

According to Beyonce, ‘Black Is King’ is a visual saga of ‘ The Lion King’ ‘The Gift’ album featuring South African award winning actors and artists such as Connie Chiume, Warren Masemola, Nandi Madida, Nyaniso Dzedze and Moonchild Sanelly who has previously collaborated with ‘Queen B’ on a track titled ‘My Power’. 

In a lengthy caption of the tailer posted on her Instagram Knowles explains that the project is a celebration of the black culture and our ancestry which couldn’t be more relevant at this critical time for black people around the world.

“We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books” Beyonce stated.

The American award winning singer stated that she has been dedicated to seeing the succession of this project come to life since last year and even though moments of doubt overshadowed her and her team, the meaning of this project helped them power through.

“While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge” she stated.

The film will premier on July 31st 2020 and we are excited for the new heights that the Mzansi entertainment industry is taking.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. 🎶please don’t get me hype🎶🤪 “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊🏾 Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B
