Are Ariana Grande and Netflix Making a Sweetener Tour Movie?

Fresh off the success of her latest record, Ariana Grande isn’t slowing down. One tweet from the singer today has her fans going wild with speculation that the “Positions” songstress is gearing up for a big Netflix release. This morning, Grande sent out a cryptic message to her followers with a post including three black and white photos that appear to be from her Sweetener World Tour, and tagging the Netflix twitter account below.

Netflix replied with a message of their own, commenting “excuse me, i love you,” in reference to Grande’s song “R.E.M.” from the Grammy Award-winning “Sweetener” album, which was released in August 2018. Grande went on tour to promote “Sweetener,” traveling around the world to perform from March through December of last year and raking in millions of dollars in the process to mark her highest-grossing tour to date.

Now, fans are thinking footage from the hit tour could make its way to Netflix in the form of a concert film, a first for Grande, who has appeared in multiple shows and film projects over the years but hasn’t released her own full-length concert documentary. “Omg is she having a netflix special!!?,” one wrote, while another wrote, “DONT PLAY WITH ME ARI.”

Today’s announcement comes after Just Jared reported in August that Grande was shopping around a Sweetener concert movie, with her team negotiating a deal for the project that had caught the attention of companies like Netflix and YouTube. While we don’t have much more information about the possible Sweetener film — if that’s what Grande is even teasing — we do have a plan for what to watch while we wait.

Back in 2018, Grande teamed up with YouTube for Dangerous Woman Diaries, a series of four episodes that chronicled her time performing on the 2017 Dangerous Woman Tour. All episodes, which each clock in at around 30 minutes, are now available to watch on YouTube.

Decider has reached out to Netflix for details on the possible Grande project, but had not heard back by the time of publication.
