The Misty movie is coming! Vanity Fair has an exclusive trailer from A Ballerina’s Tale, the forthcoming documentary charting Misty Copeland’s rise to the top.

There are glimpses of Copeland as a teenager and even with her minimal training at the time, it’s clear she’s a natural. The film hints that Copeland was also almost permanently sidelined by an injury, which is something I didn’t know about her.

I think we can expect the film to cover a lot of familiar territory, considering how much Copeland has been in the press, but the chance to see video documentation of her training and early career is really special. As the Copeland effect reaches larger and larger audiences, we can only hope that it will continue to inspire people to become dancers and dance lovers.

A Ballerina’s Tale
will be released in theaters on October 14.
