Taylor Swift kept her fans in the dark for several months. The fate of the Netflix documentary was in question. The singer first announced the film's existence in November, and since then nothing has been known about it. The documentary couldn’t be released due to the Swift’s very public feud with Scooter Braun, and the co-founder of her former label, Big Machine's Scott Borchetta.
According to Taylor, Braun and Borchetta were denying the use any of her 'older music or performance footage' (since 2006 till 2018) in the Netflix documentary.
Finally, Big Machine announced that a licensing agreement had been approved. So, Miss Americana is set to come to Netflix on January 31.
The premiere will take place a week earlier - the highly anticipated film will first premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23. Taylor Swift: Miss Americana is directed by Lana Wilson. The documentary looks at Swift's career and is "a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice", according to a statement. Well, we think the long wait was worth it!
