George Michael's final work is getting a proper cinema release later this year.
George Michael Freedom Uncut is a longer version of the Freedom documentary, which first aired in the UK in 2017, a year after his death.
The autobiographical feature film, narrated by the late star, will be released as a global cinema event on Wednesday, June 22.
Details of participating countries and cinemas are now listed on georgemichaelfreedomuncut.com.
Tickets are on sale now.
In the film, George speaks openly and honestly about the two important sides of his life: his public music career and his private personal life.
George was heavily involved in the making of the documentary before his tragic death in 2016.
In the official trailer, George speaks about his feelings on early fame, saying: “I can’t really explain how overwhelming that kind of hysteria can be. I remember thinking I really don’t know if I’ll ever do this again.”
He adds: "I want to leave songs, I believe I can leave songs, that will mean something to other generations."
This year’s theatrical release also includes never-before-seen footage from George's iconic video for 'Freedom! 90', directed by David Fincher.
Co-director David Austin said: “The film is George's final work. Narrated by George himself, it is the complete story."
Earlier this month, it was announced that George Michael's classic album Older was getting a special re-release for its 25 anniversary.
