Beyoncé -Spirit (The Lion King)

Wow, can I just say WOW, what an experience with Beyoncé’s new music video, Spirit, from Disney’s The Lion King!

Now, to be fair, I haven’t watched the new Lion King yet. I like to wait until the hype goes down. Call me the tardy guy. 🤞🏾😜

With that being said, this video is a work of elemental art. From the emotive dancing, to the beautiful lyrics, the colorful scenery, and the appearance of Blue Ivy, everything fit together perfectly. It felt like Mother Nature birthed out this video.

Can we talk about the dancing? Did it have anyone else dancing, or trying their best to move with spirit?! If it did, we were doing this together. Listening to this song, you can’t help but to sing and dance. The choreography is amazing, add Beyoncé’s remarkable vocals, and you have a showpiece.

This video will have you high off life. Everyone has probably watched it, though if you’re like me, and always late to the party, I definitely recommend you catch this masterpiece.

The Lion King premiered last Friday, July 19th, in the US. I’m going to wait to go see it – probably give it another week. Until then, here are the showtimes for anyone that hasn’t seen it. If you have seen it, let me know how it is!

I’m going to go watch the Spirit music video for the millionth time!

Mulan (2020)

After procrastinating just a tad bit, I’ve finally got around to watching the new trailer for Mulan. And can I just say, this movie looks like it’s going to be AWESOME! Growing up, I was a big fan of the Disney movie. Who can forget Mushu, the little talking dragon. Eddie Murphy (voice of Mushu) is a comedic genius. He brought Mushu to life, having some of the funniest one-liners.

To my surprise, I read that Mushu is not going to be in this live-action movie. Was I sad at first, yes. Though, after reading a little bit more about the premise, I see that this movie is based more on the original tale of Hua Mulan. If you’re like me, you grew up on the Disney version, and that’s the only version you know. Am I embarrassed, definitely! Though I’m very thankful for the learning opportunity. After reading the premise, and learning about Hua Mulan, I’m even MORE excited that Disney has decided to go this route.

The story has a feeling of empowerment, courage, strength, and spirit, and the trailer definitely delivers on all these elements! The fight scenes look amazing, the cinematography is stunning, and the acting looks superb, this is certainly a recipe for a tremendously good movie!! Can’t wait to watch. Mulan comes out next year, and I’ll definitely be catching it.
