Beyhive members, please may we have your attention.

Beyoncé's new movie, Black Is King, is out today and you can watch it on Disney+ as soon as tonight. Friday night plans sorted?

The feature-length film - a visual album composed of music videos as featured on the superstar's 'The Gift' album - is available to watch on Disney's streamer from today.

If you're already a subscriber, lucky you. Go watch it now. If not, you can quite easily sign up to the service for £5.99 per month with the option to cancel anytime.

Essentially, you could watch Bey's film (and anything else on Disney) on repeat for an entire month for less that a London-priced glass of wine. No-brainer.

Black Is King is a Beyoncé's visual album for 'The Gift', the album she executive produced for the 2019 live action remake of The Lion King, in which she voiced Nala.

Mirroring the story told in iconic Disney film, Black Is King swaps Simba for a young Black male protagonist - a rightful king among his people - and follows his journey after being cast away from his family.

The king undergoes a journey "through betrayal, love and self-identity" to reclaim his throne.

You can watch the trailer here:


The film is said to tackle themes of racism and Black pride, featuring several Black actors, musicians and celebrities including Lupita Nyong'o, Kelly Rowland, Pharrell Williams, Naomi Campbell and Yemi Alade.

Beyoncé's own family are also on the cast list with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, twins Rumi and Sir as well as the singer's mother Tina Knowles starring.

If seeing little Rumi and Sir on screen isn't enough to grab that subscription alone, we're not sure what is.

Watch Black Is King by signing up to Disney+ for £5.99 per month (and cancel anytime) here. Don't mind if we do...
