Beyoncé’s Homecoming: Netflix Coachella Concert Film Trailer Revealed

The film is out next week (which is too long to have to wait, to be honest).

Two days after bringing the internet to a standstill with the release of a logo hinting at Beyoncé documentary, Netflix has sent us into an even bigger spin by unveiling a full trailer.

Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé will debut on the streaming service next week and the new teaser confirms that it will focus on the star’s history-making Coachella 2018 set.

According to a tweet from Netflix US, the film will offer an “in-depth look” at the performance, “from creative concept to cultural movement”.

The trailer features never-seen-before footage of rehearsals and a voiceover from a 2014 Maya Angelou interview.

“I want to be representative of my race-the human race.” Maya says. “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.”

Queen Bey’s set – which she performed with small changes on the festival’s two weekends – was iconic on numerous levels, and marked the first time a black woman had headlined the festival.

The concerts saw her reunite Destiny’s Child, team up with both husband Jay-Z and sister Solange, and pay tribute to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the States.

To mark the occasion, Beyoncé announced the Homecoming Scholars Award Program, an initiative that provides scholarships to students at HBCUs for study in various fields.

Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé will be available on Netflix from Monday April 17.
