While Betty White's inimitable legacy will live on forever, a new documentary honors the icon in a fresh, beautiful way. Betty White: A Celebration celebrates what would have been the star's 100th birthday, with new interviews that were filmed prior to White's death on New Year's Eve.

The documentary film comes from the production duo of Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein, and takes viewers through the life and critically-acclaimed acting career of White, all while featuring a behind-the-scenes look at some of her most iconic sitcom roles. The documentary also includes Betty White's final interview before her untimely passing.

Betty White: A Celebration, was in theaters across the country (for a special one-day-only event) on Jan. 17, and included interviews from some of White's most notable colleagues and Hollywood friends, including: Ryan Reynolds, Morgan Freeman, Robert Redford, Tina Fey, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carol Burnett and Clint Eastwood, among many others. There is no word yet on whether it will be on any streaming services in the future.

If you missed the one-day-only screening and opt for a more home-based celebration of America's sweetheart, Disney has the perfect watch for you! 

To honor White's legacy (and well-known love for animals) Disney released the National Geographic documentary special Betty White Goes Wild! on Disney+ on Friday, Jan. 14.

The 2013 TV movie features White as she travels to the Los Angeles and San Diego zoos, learns more about the behavioral traits of big cats, and how to better protect their futures.


Betty White's commitment to safeguarding and advocating for animals has been well-documented over the years. Even in light of her passing, fans and activists alike have since started their own social media challenge called the "Betty White Challenge" -- an online event on her birthday which encouraged people to donate $5 to animal rescues or shelters in her name.
