Here's what time and where you can watch Beyoncé's Black Is King in your country.

Beyoncé is back with a new visual album based on her 2019 record The Lion King: The Gift and she's airing the film globally.

Last month (Jun 26), Beyoncé stopped the world (world stop...carry on) by airing a teaser trailer for a surprise Disney+ movie called Black Is King. Taking to social media, Beyoncé explained: "Black Is King is a labor of love. 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."

Beyoncé then added: "The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books."

Black Is King will be released on Friday July 31st. Here's when, where and how you can watch Black Is King, alongside the exact release time in various countries, with and without Disney+.
