At only 7 years old, Blue Ivy is already a bona fide pop culture icon. Every time Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eldest child makes a public appearance, which is scarce, folks can’t help but fawn and swoon over her undeniable charisma and swag.

And now, the pint-sized, precocious Blue Ivy is on the verge of starting a cultural movement without even trying.

On Monday, March 8, 2019, Netflix disseminated a teaser for its upcoming debut of Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé. It is a recap of the pop goddess’s classic performance at Coachella in 2018, featuring a majestic voiceover by the late, legendary poet Maya Angelou and cameos by Queen Bey’s children Sir Carter, Rumi and, most significantly Blue Ivy. Beyoncé made history last year as the first Black woman to be the headliner at the annual music and arts festival.

Homecoming is Beyoncé’s critically acclaimed stage show and unabashed ode to Black colleges and culture.

Homecoming presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically Black colleges and universities,” the advertising for the show reads. “Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to a cultural movement.”

Homecoming is sure to make fans forget how Queen Bey was forced to cancel her Coachella appearance two years ago when she was pregnant with twins Sir Carter and Rumi.

No one could have anticipated what Beyoncé had in store on her way to having the annual mega-fest renamed “Beychella.”

And, by the same token, few could have foreseen how much Blue Ivy would play the scene-stealer as she leads a rehearsal session by sitting in front of her megastar mother and other dancers.

Homecoming also coincides with Beyoncé’s own “Homecoming Scholars Award Program” that she launched last year worth $25,000.
