Iconic singer Beyoncé and music mogul Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter stole the show as she made a brief appearance in the new trailer for "Black Is King."


Beyoncé's look-alike daughter, Blue Ivy Carter made a special cameo in the official trailer for the singer's upcoming film and visual album, "Black Is King." 

On July 29, the new teaser for "Black Is King" was released, and the award-winning singer took to her Instagram page to share the over 90-second long video with her millions of followers.

Blue Ivy appeared around the 51-second mark and looked like royalty in her mini mint green ball gown. She completed the look with a pearl and gold crown, a pearl necklace, and red lipstick. 

Despite appearing for only a split second in the video, Blue Ivy completely stole the show. Fans of the famous singer flooded her comment section with words of admiration for the talented 8-year-old. Beyonce captioned the video:

"Tomorrow at 12 midnight PST / 3 AM EST on Disney+."


The film is based on the song album "The Lion King: The Gift," which was released last year. Blue Ivy was featured in the hit track, "Brown Skin Girl."

In the song, the beautiful princess featured alongside her famous mother as well as Nigerian musician, Wizkid, and SAINt JHN. She became the youngest BET award winner for her contribution to the smash hit single. 

Apart from Blue Ivy, the film is made of a rich ensemble cast including Jay-Z, Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams, Lupita Nyong'o, and Kelly Rowland.


The film showcases Black history and culture to the world. It was written, directed, and executive produced by Beyoncé. The highly anticipated movie is scheduled for release on July 31 and can be watched on Disney+.

Beyoncé has been working on the visual album for over a year and she recently took to her Instagram to express her happiness at its release. She wrote:

"'Black Is King' is a labor of love... I've given it my all, and now it's yours."


Apart from Blue Ivy, the film is made of a rich ensemble cast including Jay-Z, Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams, Lupita Nyong'o, and Kelly Rowland.

Other cast members of the movie include Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, Aweng Ade-Chuol, Folajomi Akinmurele, Nyaniso Dzedze, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Shatta Wale, Adut Akech, Jessie Reyez, and JD McCrary.

For now, the movie is only available on Disney+ and fans who are interested in watching the film over the weekend will need to subscribe to the channel.

With the recent nationwide protests against racial prejudice and police brutality, this, perhaps, is an excellent way to celebrate Black culture and foster unity among people regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.
