Beyoncé has narrated the first trailer for her upcoming visual album, Black is King.
“You were formed by the heat of the galaxy. What a thing to be, both unique and familiar, to be one and the same — and still unlike any other,” Beyoncé says as a young boy floats in space.
“Life is a set of choices: Lead, or be led astray,” she continues. “Follow your light — or lose it.”
The trailer also features appearances from Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Lupita Nyong’o, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Pharrell Williams, and others.
Previously, Beyoncé had said that the film was originally created as a companion piece to The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack and was meant to celebrate the “breadth and beauty of Black ancestry.”
Black Is King will stream exclusively on Disney+ beginning July 31.
