The First Trailer For Ariana Grande's Netflix Film Is Finally Here

Get excited — the trailer for Ariana Grande's Netflix film, Excuse Me, I Love You has officially dropped (via YouTube). Set to be released on December 21st, the just over one minute trailer brings to life what Grande has been teasing to fans for a while now (via Twitter). While it doesn't reveal tons of specific detail, it gives a solid insight into what to expect from the documentary, which some are calling a "concert film." 

Concert films have always existed but are especially popular these days, with many of the modern greats getting a turn at their moment on the big screen, such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift (via Entertainment Weekly). And while we've always loved this style of music consumption, there's something about them amidst the COVID-19 era that makes them even sweeter, since none of us will be going to concerts anytime soon. But what's better than a concert from your living room while you're lounging in PJs, right?

The film is expected to cover more than just Grande's incredible career

The trailer begins with Grande walking in somewhat of a frantic, comedic manner backstage somewhere, clearly lost, "7 rings" from thank u, next playing in the background. Based on the footage included in the trailer, it's clear that the film will include the textbook concert film elements, with up-close videos from her onstage performances, allowing us to feel as though we are in the audience. "Welcome to the Sweetener World Tour," Grande says to her audience.

However, we don't expect the film to stop there. What tends to make these concert films so special is that they give fans an insight into the artist behind-the-scenes, which is exactly what the trailer seems to be teasing. Grande has always been open with fans about her mental health, actively suffering from anxiety and depression (via The Independent) — and the film won't shy away from that. "I know that it's been hard — physically and mentally — but like, this show for sure, for sure saved my life this year," Grande confesses to her fellow performers (via Rolling Stone).

The reason that we expect this show to be special is because it'll detail how much of a boss Grande is, anxiety and all. While we'll tune in for bop along to Grande's iconic performances, we predict that what will really stick with us after the show is the conversation surrounding mental health that the film engages in.
