Christmas day marked five years since the legendary George Michael passed away.

But much to the delight of fans, the late pop star's final piece work is about to hit cinemas.

Prior to his death, the 'Careless Whisper' singer had been working on a documentary movie in which he opened up honestly about both his public image and personal private life.

Now that film, George Michael: Freedom Uncut, is ready for a global posthumous release and we've just had our first look at the first official trailer.

"The film features George's incredible, unseen archival and private home-footage, giving viewers a first-person account of this dramatic period in his life, revealing how he became one of the most influential recording artists of all time, who alone fought a corner for all artists by challenging the standard recording contract helping to rewrite the rules of the music industry," says the film's website.

The documentary also includes an interview with the five supermodels featured in Michael's 'Freedom! 90' music video: Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz and Linda Evangelista.

Other stars sharing their reflections include Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Liam Gallagher, Mary J Blige, Jean Paul Gaultier, James Corden and Tony Bennett.

Director and close friend David Austin said: "The film is George's final work. Narrated by George himself, it is the complete story. George Michael was an inspiring artist whose story deserves to be shared on the big screen globally."

George Michael: Freedom Uncut runs at 108 minutes and will hit cinemas globally on Wednesday 22 June, just ahead of his birthday on June 25.

Micheal died of a heart attack and liver complications at the age of 53.
