First Trailer for Beyonce's Netflix Movie 'Homecoming' Offers Intimate Look Into Her Life

By

Beyonce is coming to Netflix!

On Monday, the streaming service dropped the first trailer for Homecoming, which will feature an intimate look at the superstar's iconic performance at Coachella in 2018.

According to the press release, Homecoming will feature interviews and candid footage that detail the "preparation and powerful intent" behind the performance, which "paid homage to America's historically black colleges and universities" and helped to create a "cultural movement."

The trailer, which features a voice over from an old interview with the late renowned poet and author Maya Angelou, shows Beyonce performing, smiling with her husband, JAY-Z, and playing with their children, Blue, 7, and 1-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.

Fans will also get a peek at Beyonce rehearsing, working out in the gym and having stripped down, intimate moments with those closest to her, before she takes the stage for one of the biggest shows of her career. The concert portion of the film will mark the first time that fans can watch her Coachella performance since it was live-streamed during the event.

"What I really wanted to do was be a representative of my race, of the human race," Angelou says in the voice over. "I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach and to love and to laugh."

"I know that when I finish doing what I was sent here to do I will be called home and I will go home without any fear, trepidations, wondering what's going to happen," she continues.

As for the advice she has for this generation, Angelou says it's simple: "Tell the truth to yourself first and to the children."

The trailer comes just days after Netflix teased the project with a simple yellow poster and release date.

Homecoming hits Netflix on April 17.
