The young heartthrob also took to his official Twitter account to share the big news with his 25.6M fans. He shared the official poster of the documentary and captioned it as, "Been working on this documentary for so long & am so excited to finally share it with you all #InWonder Nov 23rd on @netflixfilm http://Wonder.lnk.to/InWonderNetflix."
Mendes had just dropped the first single titled ‘Wonder’ from his upcoming album a few days ago paired with a music video where we saw the Canadian singer-songwriter crooning the ballad while riding a train, then running through the woods and onto a rain-soaked cliff edge. You can check the official music video of the song right here.
According to Variety, it was reported that Mendes in partnership with his Shawn Mendes Foundation (SMF) had recently announced an official new annual TIFF award at the festival which will be given to an emerging or young filmmaker for excellence in creating a film that focuses on world issues important to the youth of today. ‘In Wonder’ was also a special event selection at the Toronto Film Festival.
The documentary titled ‘In Wonder’ will hit Netflix on November 23, 2020.
According to Variety, the documentary is an intimate look at Mendes’ life and will shed light on the singer’s past few years of his rise and journey, as mentioned in the official summary. The docu-film has been shot over the last few years and if the report published by the Entertainment Weekly is to be believed, fans will get to see his world tour that took him across the North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The feature-length documentary has been helmed by veteran music video director Grant Singer where Andrew Gertler, Shawn Mendes and Ben Winston serve as the executive producers. Saul Germaine, p.g.a and James Haygood have been credited as producers for this much-awaited project, as reported by the Variety.
As of now, there is no information on who we will see in the documentary apart from Mendes. We will have to wait and watch to know if the fans will get to see a few familiar faces on stage or maybe interesting footage from the backstage.
Mendes first shot to fame after he covered Justin Bieber’s song ‘As Long as You Love Me’ on the social video app Vine in 2013. He gradually gained millions of views and followers in a few months for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs.
