Everything We Know About Beyoncé’s Netflix Documentary, Homecoming


In 2018, Beyoncé became the first black woman to headline Coachella, and now her #Beychella performance will be the subject of a Netflix documentary premiering April 17.

“Homecoming” will provide “an in-depth look at Beyoncé’s celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement,” according to Netflix. The streaming giant released a trailer Monday that features behind-the-scenes footage from rehearsals, as well as a rare shot of what appears to be Rumi and Sir, Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins.

Just as she’s known for her elaborate stage designs and fierce dance moves, Beyoncé is also characterized by keeping massive projects a secret right up until they’re about to be released. While a documentary special of the Coachella concert isn’t entirely surprising, Netflix’s Sunday announcement was the first time we learned of its existence.

The Homecoming Trailer

The trailer Netflix released shows the documentary will likely get into the genesis of the performance, including the no-doubt-intense rehearsals to get the intricate dancer and musician formations so exact.

We expect the documentary to come with plenty of never-before-seen footage that offers insight into Beyoncé’s private world. So far, the trailer gives us a glimpse at someone close to her heart: her 7-year-old daughter with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy. Look closely, and you’ll see her dancing near mom while twirling her head. Bey’s toddler twins Rumi and Sir also make a quick yet adorable appearance.

“Homecoming” marks Beyoncé’s first Netflix collaboration. HBO has previously aired her concert specials and documentaries, including 2016′s “Lemonade.”
