The original album was the soundtrack for last year's The Lion King, which Beyoncé curated and executive produced the soundtrack, which featured her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, 070 Shake, Jessie Reyez, and other artists.

Black Is King promises to reimagine the lessons from The Lion King for "today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns," Disney Plus said in a statement about the album.

According to its creators, Black Is King follows the "voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored in a tale about a young king's transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity. His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father's teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne."

The film highlights the "beauty of tradition and Black excellence."

Black Is King is streaming now on Disney Plus.
