What’s It About?
Beyoncé, who put the documentary together herself, has the Beyhive going crazy on every social media platform. Initially, Netflix had tweeted the title card for the film without caption or following information, but fans knew right away.
Netflix remarked that the film will be, “interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
Footage from the trailer of Beyoncé’s eldest child Blue Ivy has gone viral on Twitter already.

Coachella And Homecoming History
Knowles’ performance at Coachella last year scored a record-breaking number of views on YouTube. In celebration of being the first black woman to ever headline at Coachella, she introduced the “Homecoming Scholars Award Program,” donating $100,000 to four historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The trailer for the film makes the anticipation for next week even greater.
