The film opens globally this summer and is Michael's final creative project.


A new trailer is teasing the upcoming release of the new George Michael Freedom Uncut full-length feature documentary that is scheduled for a global release June 22.

Michael does the narration for the film and co-directed it.

The documentary features Michael's collaborators and friends as it goes through the British musician's career. Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rogers, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, Jean Paul Gaultier, James Corden, and Tony Bennett are just some of those featured in the film.

Gallagher calls Michael "a modern-day Elvis," in the clip, and Ronson calls Michael's "Freedom! '90" the "Mona Lisa" of videos.

In the documentary, the gay Grammy-winning artist also reflects on his time in the spotlight.

"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," Michael says in the trailer about his early fame.

The supermodels who starred in Michael's "Freedom! '90" -- Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Tatjana Patitz -- also make an appearance, Attitude reports. The film will include previously unseen footage from the video's creation.

The celebrated out singer died on Christmas Day in 2016 at age 53 due to complications from an enlarged heart and a fatty liver. He left behind a string of hits from his solo career and time with the band Wham!, including "Careless Whisper," "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," and the perennial holiday favorite "Last Christmas."
