Netflix and Taylor Swift are saying You Belong With Me, and are inviting you to their Love Story.
Netflix just announced the original documentary, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, is hitting the streaming platform in 2020.
In the film, Miss America…na herself will be revealing raw and honest details about a recent emotional, challenging, and transformational era in her life. We’ll hear from Swift directly on how she’s learned to embrace her role as a songwriter, performer, and woman in the industry channeling her power and voice.
All of this news comes just before Swift’s 30th birthday, which is on December 13th. An iconic month, indeed.
Directed by Emmy Award winner Lana Wilson (After Tiller, The Departure) and produced by Academy Award winner Morgan Neville (Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, 20 Feet From Stardom) as well as Caitrin Rogers and Christine O’Malley, it’s sure to be an engaging and beautifully told story.
The film will open the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and will be released globally on Netflix in early 2020.
While this is exciting, it may not be news to some. The global superstar briefly referenced this new documentary before the official announcement amidst online drama with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta last month. Swift penned:
“Additionally—and this isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this news—Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years. Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.”
Hopefully, she’ll be spilling the tea on the “liars and dirty, dirty cheats of the world,” a line from her hit song, Shake It Off, in the film.
We can only hope.
This is not the first time Swift has appeared on Netflix. Last December, Swift partnered with the platform to release Taylor Swift reputation Stadium Tour, a film documenting her fifth concert tour and first all-stadium, on New Years Eve. The tour was record-breaking, clenching the official crown for highest-grossing concert series in U.S. history, pulling in over $266 million over 28 shows.
Taylor Swift just dropped a new Christmas song, Christmas Tree Farm, was recently dubbed Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards and one of People’s four People Of The Year.
The documentary could detail her public struggles with the media and the music industry, or even her personal struggles with her mom’s health. Either way, we’ll be watching on.
We might be winding down 2019, but cheers to what’s ahead for Swift in 2020.
