HOMECOMING – A FILM BY BEYONCÉ (2019): The ThingS I Liked…

Homecoming – A Film By Beyoncé delivered exactly what it promised; an intimate, in-depth look at the superstar’s highly celebrated 2018 Coachella performance. 

Featuring the great songs and dances that fans know and love, and sometimes with help from very welcome special guest appearances, Homecoming is the ‘recorded for your viewing pleasure’ ‘Beychella’ experience many have been praying for. 

I personally enjoyed the performances as much as I did the behind the scenes preparation footage. Footage that revealed the emotional road from creative concept to rehearsal and final show. I loved seeing Beyoncé taking charge of her vision and equally welcomed getting to know more about her heart. To be honest, I feel as though I already knew and appreciated Beyoncé’s heart since many years ago when she said that she makes music to empower women. 

The truth of that has been re-confirmed over the years through the many great anthems. Her heart was also clear to me in the Beyonce – Year Of 4 documentary. It was in her reaction when at the 2017 Grammys Adele expressed what Beyoncé and her great work meant to her and her friends. And now, in this very documentary, through the following quote about her Coachella 2018 performance.

I feel we made something. I made my daughter proud, made my mother proud, my father proud and all of the people that are my brothers and sisters around the world. And that’s why I live. I’m so lucky and grateful that I’m able to take all these crazy ideas and, actually make it into something that heals people and may spark vision in people, that shows them to dream big. It shows them that they are limitless. It’s possible. If my country-ass can do it. They can do it.’

I love how Beyoncé’s purpose makes me feel seen. I can’t help but feel lifted when I hear her music.

Tune in for the great performances, music, and words of wisdom from several wise leaders – most prominently featured among them, activist and writer Maya Angelou.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  The Lion King (2019).

A new version of the 1994 Disney classic The Lion King is coming in summer 2019. It’s a CGI and live-action re-imagining directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book (2016).

The main characters are voiced by  Seth Rogen, Donald Glover, Keegan-Michael Key, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Beyonce, James Earl Jones, Eric André…

It’s so great that the wonderful bass of James Earl Jones’s voice is featured in both the 1994 version and this new movie.

I can’t wait to find out which version of the movie I prefer and how well all the distinct voices of the actors involved will sound together.

John Oliver, Florence Kasumba, Shahadi Wright Joseph and John Kani also star.

The Lion King Release Dates: July 19th, 2019 (US & UK)…
