Taylor Swift tragics rejoice — we finally have a release date for her new Netflix documentary, Miss Americana. The Lana Wilson-directed film will hit streaming services internationally on January 31st. The documentary will officially debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival on January 23rd.
Swift announced the documentary back in November, ahead of her appearance at the American Music Awards. The release of the film was shrouded with uncertainty after Swift revealed that media mogul Scooter Braun — who recently acquired the copyright to her first six records— declined to license her music for use in the documentary.
The conflict seems to have come to a resolution, though at the time Swift claimed that Braun and Scott Borchetta were barring her from using old footage from her performances in the documentary.
“This isn’t the way I had planned on telling you this news – Netflix has created a documentary about my life for the past few years,” Swift shared in a statement at the time. “Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.”‘
