Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds Movie: Watch Beautiful Trailer For 'Bright Lights' HBO Documentary [VIDEO]

Close

The Carrie Fisher-Debbie Reynolds documentary set to air on HBO this weekend now has a trailer, and it's just as special as you might imagine.

Fisher and Reynolds are the subjects of a new documentary for HBO called Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. The movie, which was set to air sometime in March, was moved up to Jan. 7 after both Fisher and Reynolds died within a day of each other in the final week of 2016.

Taking on greater significance, Bright Lights offers an in-depth look at their special relationship and provides a touching sense of closure for their millions of fans. Check out the trailer below:

"Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, live in the same Beverly Hills compound. The 83-year-old grand dame still has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie's response is both hilarious and heart-rending," reads the description for the documentary. "Featuring vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage, the film is directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens."

Fisher and Reynolds had a tumultuous relationship when the former was in her 20s, but they reconnected and drew a deeper bond over the past few decades.

The documentary has already been shown at numerous film festivals, including the Cannes Film Festival, the Telluride Film Festival and the New York Film Festival, to rave reviews.

Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will air Saturday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. It will then be available to stream on HBO Go and HBO NOW.

And for those who wish to further pay tribute to Fisher, her one-woman show, Wishful Drinking, is currently available for streaming on HBO Go and HBO NOW.
