“Beyoncé is this larger-than-life figure, but when she’s working with her daughter, when she’s in the room with her daughter, she’s a mom first,” said director Barry Jenkins. “So much of that energy bled into the film.”

Jenkins said the real-life relationship between Beyonce and her daughter made the role a natural fit for the film.

“I think for them, too, they just approached it that they both wanted to perform and do the best they could. And yet, they didn’t have to pretend very much because they really are mother and daughter.”

Jenkins said working with the mother-daughter duo was “really special.”

“I was so glad that both Beyoncé and Blue Ivy were down to do it, and watching them work together was just really special,” said the “Moonlight” director.

Jenkins also spoke highly of Blue Ivy’s work ethic, calling the 12-year-old a “professional.”

The new movie has already been filmed and is currently in post-production.

Before you ask – NO you won’t see their faces. Beyonce and Blue will only be voice actors for the project.
