Beyonce gave the Beyhive something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving morning (Nov. 23): a new and final trailer for her upcoming concert documentary, Renaissance: A Film by Beyonce.
The two-minute teaser kicks off with a sideways home video before Queen Bey reveals who the cameraperson is when she addresses them: “Rumi, now can I teach you a trick? You gotta turn it to the side!”
With that intro featuring her young daughter, whom she shares with husband Jay-Z, Beyonce sets up the focus of her latest trailer — her children and what they mean to her. Interspersed between scenes of the superstar backstage giving her thoughts on the direction of her Renaissance World Tour to family scenes and big, flashy concert moments Bey explains it all.
“Time is my biggest obstacle. It’s impossible to not realize how fast it’s going when you’re looking through the eyes of your children,” she begins in the voiceover, as an image of Blue Ivy –the couple’s firstborn — performing on stage with Beyonce appears.
“I think about all of my heroes and all that they endured,” the 32-time Grammy winner continues, as video of Diana Ross’ surprise performance at Beyonce’s birthday show plays. “I know that all of my struggle and sacrifice is opening the door for the next. They are the new beginning.”
Ending on a powerful note, the superstar concludes her voiceover, saying, “I have nothing to prove to anyone at this point. We are creating our own world. This is my reward. Nobody can take that away from me.”
The concert film opens worldwide Dec. 1. Ahead of that, Renaissance will have a dual world premiere in Los Angeles on Nov. 25, and London on Nov. 30, The Hollywood Reporter previously reported.
Beyonce wrote, executive produced, as well as co-directed the film, which chronicles her record-breaking Renaissance World Tour. Tickets for shows around the world are on sale now.
