Lewis Capaldi dresses as Bridgerton and Wednesday to announce Netflix doc
| Last updated
Netflix is known for having an impressive roster of films, TV shows and documentaries.
Well, the streaming site is expanding its portfolio and adding another huge name to its titles, with a documentary about everyone's favourite popstar, Lewis Capaldi:
And the Scottish singer announced the exciting news in his own unique style, dressing up as iconic characters and subjects made famous by the channel.
In a short video posted to Twitter, Capaldi dons a striking green dress to depict the hit series Bridgerton, before switching into a red Squid Game jump suit and growing some impressive facial hair a la Tiger King.
Mimicking some more major titles, he then moves onto Orange Is The New Black and Spanish crime caper Money Heist, eventually morphing into Wednesday Addams from Wednesday.
Rounding off his tour de force, it's finally the turn of the man himself as he announces his addition to the list.
Sharing the post to its official account, Netflix said: "A big welcome to a new Netflix icon... @LewisCap."
Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now promises to offer fans a 'raw and honest' insight to the singer's life and his meteoric rise to fame over the past few years.
Directed by BAFTA winner Joe Pearlman (Harry Potter 20th Anniversary), it will release next month ahead of Capaldi's new album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent.
Away from the music, it also delves into his return home as moves back in with his parents, and the personal toll of being one of the biggest stars on the planet.
Speaking ahead of the film dropping, Capaldi admitted he was incredibly nervous about what people will think.
"I’m pretty terrified for people to see this documentary if I’m quite honest, but I’m also really proud of it. I hope you enjoy it," the 26-year-old said.
Sam Bridger, head of music films at Pulse Films, said making the documentary was a much more in-depth process than they had expected, touching on serious topics, particularly mental health.
"This started out as a film about the process of creating the ‘difficult second album’, but ended up being an astonishingly unguarded portrait of the pressures of fame on young shoulders, exploring one of the great conversations of our age - mental health," Bridger said.
“Such unfiltered access to one of the biggest stars on the planet is testament to the bravery of Lewis and his team who invited us into their world, and the incredible trust and storytelling instincts of director Joe Pearlman, producer Alice Rhodes and the production team."
Stuart Souter, BMG vice president of films, added: “This is much more than just a music film. With the support of his family, Lewis has opened up in a unique way.
"Just like his music, we are confident that it will connect with people around the world."
Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now will be available to watch on Netflix from 5 April.
