With just two days until it premieres on HBO, the TV giant has released the trailer for Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, a documentary chronicling the relationship between the two Hollywood mainstays who recently passed away a day within each other. You can view it for yourself below.
What’s evident throughout the trailer is the true love Fisher and Reynolds had with each other. They really were best friends who relied on each other for just about everything, such as Fisher helping her mom out with getting to her regular Vegas shows. No doubt seeing just how much they loved each other will guarantee this one is going to be a tearjerker, especially when Fisher said that she knows mother feels and wants. The film also focuses on their family overall and their own paths in Hollywood, particularly the mental health battles Fisher suffered through.
Originally scheduled for a March premiere, HBO moved up the air date in the wake of their sudden deaths and its already been raved about from its Cannes Film Festival Premiere last May.
Let’s be prepared to have the tissues on stand-by when watching this.
