Per Variety, Disney and Parkwood Entertainment said in a statement, "Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience." The statement continued, "The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future."

The "Halo" singer released a teaser trailer for Black Is King.

"These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power," the announcement continued.
