Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé is a Netflix original doc chronicling the road to her legendary performance, and it's set to be released on Wednesday, April 17. After a bit of cryptic teasing over the weekend by the streaming service, the trailer for the film dropped on Monday, April 8.
As Beyoncé is accustomed to dropping everything from albums to music videos to now full-length documentaries without much warning, little is known about the film, but you can expect to see the genesis and planning phases of her ode to black colleges and universities. It also features never-before-seen, original interviews (a rarity for the pop star), behind-the-scenes practice footage and clips of the set… as well as what looks like some really great shots of her daughter Blue Ivy in the studio, swinging her hair and preparing for the big gig.
Mark your calendars for April 17, because who knows what will happen when Queen Bey collides with Netflix, another all-consuming cultural force.
