On April 14, 2018, the world stopped. Or it sure felt like it, because that was the day we witnessed the jaw-dropping Coachella performance from none other than Beyoncé. That year’s festival was rightfully dubbed Beychella afterwards, and left little doubt about who really runs the world. For the upcoming one-year anniversary of Beychella, Netflix and Beyoncé are taking fans behind the scenes of her incredible set in a new Netflix Original documentary, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé.
Netflix dropped the trailer today, describing the special as “an in-depth look at Beyoncé’s celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement.” The trailer opens with clips of Beyoncé’s background dancers preparing for the big day, as the late Maya Angelou is heard saying, “What I really want to do is be a representative of my race, of the human race. 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 love and to laugh and I know that when I’m finished doing what I’m sent here to do, I will be called home.”
But halfway through the trailer, Blue Ivy takes the spotlight. She joins her mother’s dance rehearsal and flips her hair to perfection. A few blink-and-you’ll-miss it clips of Rumi and Sir Carter and JAY-Z promise a very rare and intimate look into Beyoncé’s personal life.
Beyoncé’s Beychella performance was inspired by HBCUs, from the marching bands and majorettes to the Greek letters worked onto the costumes she and her dancers wore throughout the show. The iconic performance also included a Destiny’s Child reunion and appearances from JAY-Z, J Balvin, and Solange.
Homecoming will be released on April 17 on the streaming service.
