Ariana Grande Will Wrap Up 2020 By Dropping A ‘Sweetener’ Tour Movie On Netflix

Update: Ariana Grande and Netflix have both officially announced the release of a Sweetener tour film, titled Excuse Me, I Love You. It is set for release on December 21, which is exactly one year after the tour concluded last year.

Grande shared a message about the film, writing, “releasing this as a love letter to u all, in celebration of all that we’ve shared over the past few years. i know this project only captures some of one tour (out of all the other hundreds of shows and moments we have shared over the past six or seven years… jesus lol) but i just wanted to thank u all for showing me more in this lifetime already than i ever dreamed of. making music and doing all of this has been all i’ve known or fully given myself to consistently for a very long time now. although my heart is looking forward to a change of pace, i wanted to express again just how eternally thankful i am. i’ve learned, seen and felt so much. it’s been such an honor to share so much of this life with u.”

It was reported this summer that Ariana Grande was working on a deal to bring a Sweetener tour movie to either Netflix or YouTube, with Netflux apparently approaching Grande with an offer of $5 million. Nothing is official on that front yet, although both Grande and Netflix seem to be hinting that they have something Sweetener-related in the works.

Yesterday, Grande shared a trio of photos taken during her Sweetener tour, then responded to the tweet by tagging Netflix. The streaming platform replied with, “excuse me, i love you,” which is rumored to be the title of the film. A Grande fan page on Twitter noted yesterday that for some users, visiting directs to a placeholder page for something that is tagged with genres related to documentaries and music.

There’s certainly a precedent for a Sweetener documentary from Grande. In 2018, she released the docuseries Dangerous Woman Diaries on YouTube (all four episodes of which are now available to watch for free). Additionally, she has already released a live album from the Sweetener tour, K Bye For Now (SWT Live), which came out around this time last year.

Meanwhile, it’s already been a great December for Grande and her fans, as she linked up with Mariah Carey for a new holiday collaboration.
