Miss Americana is set to debut at the opening night of 2020 Sundance Film Festival on January 23, 2020, and will be released on Netflix and in select theaters on January 31, 2020. Netflix described the film as a “raw and emotionally revealing look” at Swift “during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice”.
Taylor Swift expressed interest in making a documentary with Netflix following the release of the concert film Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour on the streaming platform in December 2018. She was provided with a list of potential directors, of which Wilson was one.
The title of the documentary is borrowed from “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince”, a song on Swift’s seventh album Lover (2019), in which Swift expressed her disillusionment over the state of United States politics.
Swift revealed the documentary in November 2019, when she said the owner and founder of her former label Big Machine Records, Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta respectively, blocked her from using older music and performance footage for the documentary. She added that the documentary does not mention Braun, Borchetta, or Big Machine. Big Machine denied the accusations in a statement. In response, a representative for Swift published an email from a Big Machine executive refusing to issue licences in connection to the documentary. In December, Variety reported Big Machine has cleared the use of Swift’s older material for the film.
In an interview with Chris Willman of Variety, it was revealed that the opening act of the film deals with “juxtaposing the joys of creation with the aggravations of global stardom” while the second half is a “provocative turn focused on why Swift became a political animal”. Willman wrote that the film further features clips capturing Swift’s increasing LGBTQ allyship, Swift’s reaction to her mother’s cancer diagnosis, and Swift’s response to her 2017 album Reputation not receiving any nominations in general categories at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Wilson stated that she views the movie as “looking at the flip side of being America’s sweetheart”.
