Beyoncé’s has released one final trailer ahead of her concert film set for its release next month, which gives fans a peek into the mind behind the colossal Renaissance World Tour.
On Thursday (November 23), a preview for Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé went live, stirring up anticipation for its global premier on December 1. The trailer opens with Bey’s six-year-old daughter Rumi Carter recording her mother and her grandfather Matthew Knowles backstage using a phone, before she is advised to hold it in a landscape angle rather than portrait.
“Rumi, now I teach you a trick, you gotta turn it to the side,” the Houston native says while facing the device.
A little later in the teaser, the 42-year-old shares one way in motherhood has shifted her perspective, saying: “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. I think about all of my heroes and all that they endured — I know that all of my struggle and sacrifice is opening the door for the next. They are the new beginning.”
In a separate trailer for the film that dropped earlier this month, Queen B took fans both backstage and on the road while waxing poetic about the struggles of being a woman in a male-dominated industry.
“In this world that is very male-dominated, I’ve had to be very tough to balance motherhood and being on the stage,” she says over the footage, which also gives viewers a front-row seat to her performances. “And it just reminds me of who I really am. It’s a new birth! I hope you feel liberated, but the renaissance is not over.”
Back in October, the singer confirmed that a concert film would be released following the Renaissance World Tour, which was designed to support her 2022 blockbuster album of the same name.
According to its description, the film “accentuates the journey of Renaissance World Tour, from its inception to the opening in Stockholm, Sweden, to the finale in Kansas City, Missouri.
“It is about Beyoncé’s intention, hard work, involvement in every aspect of the production, her creative mind and purpose to create her legacy, and master her craft,” the description continues. “Received with extraordinary acclaim, Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour created a sanctuary for freedom, and shared joy, for more than 2.7 million fans.”
