This is just one of many projects in the works since Prince’s death. Paisley Park recently opened as a museum and a four-day celebration is planned for April and will include guided tours and performances from bands like The Revolution and Morris Day and The Time.
News of the upcoming documentary comes after the recent release of Prince 4Ever, a collection of unreleased songs and hits; a Purple Rain reissue is expected to arrive next year.
