The long-awaited documentary about Billie Eilish will be finally released in theatres and on Apple TV+ in February 2021. Entitled The World’s A Little Blurry, the film tells the success story of 18-year-old pop wunderkind.
What to expect? Well, a film crew followed the Grammy award-winning singer everywhere for several years to document how she debuted her first album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. “I’ve seen no part of it,” she's said in a previous interview. “I’m terrified. I’m freaked out. They’ve been filming since like July of 2018 … Who has that much footage of them that they’ve never seen? I’m terrified.” Then, there's the monumental career highs: a world tour, Grammy awards (including Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year, and writing a theme song for the new James Bond movie along the way (becoming the youngest artist ever to write and record a title track for the franchise.)
The documentary will also feature behind-the-scenes footage at runway appearances, alongside more personal moments with family and friends. According to the new teaser, revealed earlier this week, there’s also rare footage of a young Billie Eilish learning how to play the piano (cute). The World’s A Little Blurry is directed by R.J. Cutler, the mastermind behind the fashion documentary The September issue, about Anna Wintour’s work at US Vogue, and some iconic political documentaries, such as The War Room and A Perfect Candidate.
The film was first announced in 2019, and made headlines when Apple reportedly acquired the rights for it for $25 million. You can watch the 30-second teaser here.
