Netflix has dropped a trailer for a new Beyoncé documentary, so everyone please get ready to freak out appropriately!!

The film, Homecoming, was first teased by the streaming service on Instagram yesterday. They posted nothing more than the title on a yellow background, with a date at the bottom: April 17th. No caption, no mention of Beyoncé, no details whatsoever, but fans quickly put two and two together to figure out this may be the long-hoped for recording of Queen Bey’s 2018 Coachella performance.

 

 

Today’s trailer essentially confirms those hopes.

It seems likely those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to be at the iconic concert in person will most likely finally get to see the full thing on our tiny little screens.

But even beyond that, it’s supposedly a journey into what the creative process was in conceptualize and ultimately creating that set.

Her Coachella set, better known as Beychella — yes, it was so iconic it needed its own title — was thematically representative of the black collegiate experience, something the trailer points out with positive (duhh) quotes from critics.

The trailer itself features a rapid onset of footage from both the performances and from Beyoncé’s life, underneath a narration from Maya Angelou that suggests Homecoming will be so much more than just a concert — that it will be introspective and revolutionary and honest, which is exactly what we know to expect from Beyoncé.

“Tell the truth,” Angelou says as the narration comes to a close. “To yourself first, and to the children.”
