Fans have been absolutely ecstatic since they heard that Beyoncé's visual album Black Is King would be debuting on Disney Plus at the end of the month. That release is now upon us...and, surprising exactly no one, it has basically broken the Internet (it might be an overused phrase, but in this case it's totally true). Upon its release Beyoncé explained that although it started out as a companion piece to her Lion King track, "I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose." Honestly, before you look at any reactions, just go watch, because it is seriously a stunning tour de force. Here are the most epic reactions to the film so far, including all the details you might have missed.
Black Is King has so many beautiful features, Easter eggs, and cameos.

And fans talked about the true significance and importance of the film.
I wish I had a visual like #BlackIsKing in my youth. I’m tearing up thinking about how these images and words will affect the dark-skinned girls and boys around the world who are constantly “othered.” Like I was.

I don’t think y’all understand what this Brown Skin Girl visual means. It just wrecked me. The celebration of every shade of brown skin is resetting the social norm. My god. “We were beautiful before they knew what beauty was.” #BlackIsKing pic.twitter.com/QuBUgeyafz

Just when I think I couldn’t love Beyoncé more, she’s put dark-skinned Indian women and girls in the video for BROWN SKIN GIRL 😍Doing more for representation for dark-skinned South Asian women than most Bollywood celebrities who prefer to promote skin lightening #BlackIsKing pic.twitter.com/py7hByANRb
