A look at Tina Turner's iconic life and legacy is coming to the small screen.

And now we've had our first look at the upcoming documentary, Tina.

This morning HBO debuted an emotional teaser trailer for the film, showing the 81-year-old sitting in a sparsely decorated room, recounting a childhood memory of watching her mother at the window.

It then explodes into dynamic concert footage and a thrilling montage of photos from her youth and performances

The film is described as "a revealing and intimate look at the life and career of musical icon Tina Turner, charting her improbable rise to early fame, her personal and professional struggles throughout her life and her even more improbable resurgence as a global phenomenon in the 1980s."

Turner herself was interviewed for the project, at her home in Zurich and the project will feature "a wealth of never-before-seen footage, audiotapes and personal photos, telling a deep and absorbing story about the queen of rock ‘n’ roll in all its complexity."

With archival footage spanning over 60 years worth of interviews, performances and personal moments, Tina is set to be an in-depth look at the life of the music legend unlike any fans have seen before.

Additionally, interviews were conducted with numerous stars and those intimately familiar with Turner's life, including Angela Bassett, Oprah Winfrey, journalist Kurt Loder, as well as Turner's husband, Erwin Bach.

Tina will be available on HBO and HBO Max on March 27.
