After the passing of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, HBO announced the released of Bright Lights, a documentary about the pair's close relationship.

The actresses were notoriously close and the documentary is set to reveal exactly just how close they were and how they dealt with each other's lives in the spotlight.

From the trailer, we can already tell that the film is the perfect way for the world to say goodbye to two screen icons.

But, what you may not know, is that Carrie apparently wasn't too keen on the idea when she was originally approached about it.

"She was a little shocked at the intimacy of it," Fisher Stevens, one of the directors of the documentary, revealed in a recent interview.

"There were little things that really bugged her."

Luckily for the filmmakers, Carrie eventually came around to the idea.

"In the end she fell in love with the film and thought it was a love letter to her and her mother, and that's the good news, that she loved it."

The documentary was originally set for release in March 2016 but is now being released on January 7 in America.
