More than a year following Céline Dion’s revelation of her diagnosis with stiff person syndrome, fans can anticipate a documentary chronicling the iconic singer’s health journey.

On Tuesday, Amazon MGM Studios announced the acquisition of worldwide rights to “I Am: Celine Dion,” a feature-length documentary that will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. While the release date is yet to be disclosed, the documentary, helmed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Irene Taylor, offers an unprecedented glimpse into the global megastar’s private life.

The documentary promises to unveil “a global megastar’s never-before-seen private life” and provides an intimate exploration of Celine Dion’s past and present. It delves into her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) and chronicles the lengths she has gone to in order to continue performing for her devoted fans.

Reflecting on the challenges posed by SPS over the past couple of years, Dion stated, “The journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it but not to let it define me has been such a challenge for me.” As she works towards resuming her performing career, Dion expressed her realization of how much she missed connecting with her fans. The French-Canadian singer emphasized her decision to document this phase of her life, aiming to raise awareness about the lesser-known condition and provide support to others sharing the diagnosis.

“I Am: Celine Dion” is poised to offer an insightful narrative into the artist’s resilience, both in coping with a medical condition and her dedication to her craft, providing audiences with a unique perspective on her personal and professional journey.
