It’s here — Netflix has just released the trailer for Beyoncé’s film about her history-making 2018 Coachella performance.
On Monday, the streaming service dropped a preview of the highly-anticipated film titled Homecoming, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to pull off her iconic set. “Homecoming presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities,” Netflix said in their caption of the trailer. “Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
The Homecoming trailer features the late Maya Angelou speaking over footage of Bey preparing for her show. The one minute and 43-second clip also shows Blue Ivy perfectly executing her mama’s Coachella choreography while practicing alongside Bey and her dancers. And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited for the upcoming film, the trailer also gave a few glimpses of Bey’s twins Rumi and Sir.
“I want to be representative of my race-the human race,” Miss Angelou begins as shots of Bey and her Coachella team are shown. “I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach, to love and to laugh. I know that when I finish doing what I’m sent here to do I will be called home and I will go home without any fear, trepidations, wondering what’s going to happen.”
“What advice would you have to give this generation?” an interviewer is heard asking the legendary poet. “Tell the truth, to yourself first, and to the children,” Angelou responds as the trailer transitions to Coachella footage.
Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé premieres Wednesday, April 17 on Netflix.
