Kanye West is getting the movie treatment in a three-part Netflix documentary premiering in February titled jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy.

The first part of the trilogy will debut at the Sundance Film Festival and then hit theaters nationwide for one day only on Thursday, Feb. 10.

The streamer released the teaser trailer on Monday along with a press release saying Act 1 of jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy will arrive on Netflix Feb. 16. The second and third acts begin streaming on Feb. 23 and March 2.

The trailer of Act 1 features never-before-seen footage gathered since 2002, including West humming the notes of “Through the Wire” while his jaw was wired shut after a car accident.

“So it’s like God saying, ‘I’m about to hand you the world, but know at any given time, I can take it away from you,” the “Heartless” artist says in a voiceover in the teaser.

The footage also shows the hip-hop artist with his late-mother Donda West, and in the studio with Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z.

Over the years, West has won 22 Grammy Awards. The separate acts of the documentary will chronicle his career over 21 years, leading up to his failed presidential bid in 2020.

Coodie and Chike direct the film. The duo have also collaborated with West on music videos including “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks.”
