night sleep with cozy pa jam jamas. Beyonce herself, the highly anticipated debut of her visual album "Black is king" happens tonight on Disney plus and right now just for us on "Gma," Beyonce recorded us a very special message and shared her vision for the project and some never before seen video, some of the shots that are just amazing from the film. Take a look. Black is king is finally here. I'm so excited you guys get to watch it tonight on Disney plus. It's been a year in the making. I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors and actors and creatives from all over the world to reimagine the story of "The lion king." The narrative unfolds through music video, fashion, dance, beautiful natural settings and raw new talent but all started in my backyard, so from my house to johannesburg to Ghana to London to Belgium to the grand canyon, it was truly a journey to bring this film to light. And my hope for this film is that it shifts the global perception of the word black which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me. For "Black is king" means black is regal and rich in history, in purpose and in lineage. I hope y'all love it. I hope you enjoy it and I hope y'all see it tonight. Wow, thank you so much, Beyonce. The film is based on the music of "Lion king," the gift. The goal Beyonce says was to reimagine lessons from kings and queens in search of their own crowns. Featured an amazing cast including Naomi Campbell, Lupita nyong'o, Pharrell Williams, Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter, blue ivy. Guys, check it out. "Black is king" debuting tonight, 3:00 A.M. Eastern, 12:00 A.M. Pacific on Disney plus, set your alarms. Also in the news this morning, Matthew mcconaughey with a big announcement. So the actor has revealed he's kept journals his whole life and has finally decided open them up and share them in "Green light." No one could describe it the way Matthew does. I'll let him do it. Please roll. This is my sights and scene, successes and failures, stories, people, place, poems and a whole lot of bumper stickers called "Green lights" because it's a story of how I have and we all can catch more of them in this life we're living. We don't like the red and yellow lights. They take up our time, right but when we realize that they all eventually turn green, that's when they reveal their rhyme. That's when life is a poem and start getting what we want and what we need at the same time and I call that the honey hole. Little place called heaven on Earth. Sights and scene, nices and means. Sharing that on his Instagram explaining the book will not be a traditional memoir. Guess what, we could tell but a, quote, playbook based on my adventures in my life so let's get to those greenlight, shall it is coming out for preorder. A penny for your thoughts on this, you guys. How would you feel if we got rid of our beloved copper one-cent the penny, people love to find them heads up for good luck and enable us that gratifying experience of having exact change. It's coming under fire this morning. According to the federal reserve, making the one-cent coin now costs almost two cents which many say makes no sense. If the penny is eliminated business also have to follow what Canada has done to round up or round down and the federal reserve formed a task force to study in losing the penny makes sense. I don't know about you but I love a penny. I love that feeling of having exact change. I know where I stand on this moment. I'll let you ponder. I was going to start the debate but I don't think we have time, Lara. No, no. No. But, hey, George, a penny for your thoughts, George. A penny for your thoughts.
