The upcoming movie and album “Black Is King” of queen B Beyonce has dropped a new trailer, where another queen made an appearance in the video. And that is queen Blue Ivy Carter – her 8-year-old daughter.
The new trailer released two days ahead of the movie’s official air date. The lovely baby girl looked like a Disney princess in a mini mint green ballgown, wearing a pearl crown on her head, pearl jewelry to match, and classic red lipstick.
It was not the first time Blue appeared in the movie’s trailer, as she first featured in the original released on June 28, although only for a split second. She was seen sitting among a splendid court of fellow queens that included her mom, Beyoncé.
During the trailer, Beyoncé donned for many stunning looks in the sneak-peek of the movie that she starred in, directed, wrote and executive produced. The movie based on The Lion King: The Gift, the soundtrack that Beyoncé curated for the 2019 remake of the classic The Lion King movie.
Blue’s mom is reported to have been working on this film for over a year, and it took on new meaning in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“‘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,” Beyonce wrote in her Instagram post.
Beyoncé also went on explaining that her goals for the new visual album were “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.”
Besides Blue Ivy Carter, there are some other cameos agreed to appear in the trailer: Beyoncé’s husband JAY-Z, her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, former Destiny Child’s groupmate Kelly Rowland, and fellow stars like Pharrell Williams and Lupita Nyong’o.
