After completing her world tour this week Lilly Singh, or IISuperwomanII as she is known to her over 6 million subscribers on Youtube, gave fans something else to be excited about. This past week she dropped a sneak peek of her upcoming tour documentary, A Trip to Unicorn Island.
The documentary “will capture everything from Singh’s musical performances to her beloved Manjeet and Paramjeet sketches and ‘motivational philosophy for a new generation,’” according to production company Astronauts Wanted. You may know Astronauts Wanted from projects like Mamrie Hart and Grace Helbig’s Hey USA, or their reality series @SummerBreak. The film was also directed by Scott Winn, of ScottDW on Youtube and who also worked with Devin Super Tramp.
In a statement about the film Singh shared, “This story has been 5 years in the making. My journey on YouTube is parallel to my journey as a person as I faced trials and tribulations both on and offline. With the simple, yet difficult decision to prioritize happiness, I created a place called Unicorn Island that is synonymous for my happy place. My goal for this tour, and in turn documentary, is to remind people they all have Unicorn Island within them and can visit whenever they want.”
The trailer is inspiring and certainly emotional as Singh talks on her struggles with depression and desiree to make others laugh. Also featured are some certainly interesting interviews, from Singh’s parents, to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is referred to as on of Singh’s “biggest fans” in a press release.
While we don’t yet have a release date for AT2UI we know this will be a must see and not just for fans of the incredibly talented Superwoman! Don’t believe us? Check out the sneak peek for yourself!
