WATCH: Official trailer for ‘WHITNEY’ documentary will make you cry
Get ready for the feels.
The official trailer for Whitney, the highly-anticipated, big-screen, documentary on the life of Whitney Houston was just released and we can tell it’s going to be a tear-jerker for sure.
The film is set to debut at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival and is directed by Kevin Macdonald. It’s co-executive produced by Whitney’s sister, Pat Houston, so her family is behind the project, for once.
In it, we will supposedly learn the real story of Houston’s private life and see interviews from her friends and family, including her mother, Cissy Houston, and her cousin, Dionne Warwick.
Here’s the film’s official description:
Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48. The documentary feature Whitney is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life. Using never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives and original interviews with the people who knew her best, Oscar®-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald unravels the mystery behind “The Voice,” who thrilled millions even as she struggled to make peace with her own troubled past.
Check out the official teaser trailer:
If that’s not enough, BET is still working on their two-part miniseries, The Bobby Brown Story, which will also feature some insight into Houston’s life. She will be played by Gabrielle Dennis in the flick that’s due out in September.
