Shawn Mendes dropped the trailer for his documentary, ‘In Wonder’ and he is getting candid with his fans. He reveals his fear of his fans realizing that he is just a normal guy.
The singer displayed his insecurities in the trailer for his new Netflix film. It also featured Camila Cabello. He tweeted on his social media and wrote that the official trailer for his documentary would be released on November 23.
The singer thanks his fans for being on this journey with him. A look at the trailer shows us Shawn stripped down in the shower. The singer is then seen writing, singing, and taking the stage in a massive arena.
In the voiceover, the hitmaker said, “You first get on the stage and ego comes rushing in and it goes ‘don’t mess up’.” He gives a look at his emotional side before going on for a performance. However, after being in front of the audience for a while, he reminds himself that he loves music and it was time to surrender.
Shawn also gives us a glimpse during his massive tour which he described as “pretty intense”. The singer’s tour featured him going through North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
His Netflix documentary also promises the audience a glimpse at Shawn behind-the-scenes revealing how he is behind doors. It is described as a ‘portrait of Mendes life’ and promises the past few years of his rise and journey.
In Wonder To Release Before His Album
Shawn narrates, “This isn’t a story about a famous musician this is a story about a guy growing up.” He is heard asking himself if he tells the world that he is just a normal person, will they stop coming to his shows. The singer narrates that maybe he should pretend to be Superman for a little longer.
The film was shot before the pandemic started and it shows Shawn rehearsing and playing for sold-out arenas. The singer’s girlfriend also makes a cameo in the trailer as they are seen performing their duet song, Senorita.
Towards the end of the trailer, Shawn can be seen behind the stage as he watches Camila on stage surrounded by lights. He says, “My song comes on the radio or something and I’m like, ‘Everything’s about you. They’re all, they have always been about you.’ She goes, ‘What do you mean?’ Like, they’re all about you. Like every song I’ve ever written.”
The singer also has been open about him seeking therapy back in 2018. He had revealed in an interview last year that talking about the problem and putting it out there was scary but also important.
The documentary will be released before the release of his album, Wonder. It has already earned a lot of attention as it has been pegged as a special edition during September’s TIFF screenings. It has been crafted by the music director, Grant Singer.
Andrew Gertler and Ben Winston will executive produce the movie. Gertler is also Shawn’s manager. Saul Germaine, p.g.a, and James Haygood are credited as producers.
Shawn Might Be Collaborating With Justin Bieber
In an interview on Capital Breakfast with the Roman Kemp radio show, the singer was questioned about creating a duet with Justin. He said, “Is this you trying to get me to confirm that I have a collaboration with Justin Bieber?”
Shawn said he would be insane if he turned an opportunity to collaborate with Justin as he is one of his favorite artists since he was nine years old. Before fans started speculating about the tension between the two artists. The simple reason was that Shawn once dated Justin’s now-wife, Hailey Bieber.
The couple had made an appearance together at the 2018 Met Gala together. However, they publicly dismissed the relationship rumors. The singer also opened up about his current relationship with Camila Cabello. He said he will never give Camila a private concert.
In Wonder streams on Netflix on November 23rd.
