Céline Dion’s heart is about to “go on” — to the big screen.
The first trailer for Aline (or The Power of Love in English), has dropped and it stars French filmmaker Valérie Lemercier as Aline Dieu, the film’s version of Céline Dion.
The biopic will chronicle Dion’s life from her birth and modest upbringing in Quebec in the late 1960s, to her extraordinary rise to fame, her relationships with her family, manager and late husband René Angélil, and her Las Vegas residency, according to IMDB.
The film follows the trend of celebrity singer flicks, following the smash hit Bohemian Rhapsody and the Elton John film, Rocket Man.

The music-filled film has a reported budget of $23 million and will boast some of the Quebecois singer’s biggest hits including: “All by Myself,” “My Heart Will Go On,” “The Power of Love,” and “I’m Alive,” all of which have been authorized by Dion.
The biopic is directed by Lemercier and stars Jérôme Commandeur as the late René Angelil, Martine Fontaine, Caroline Rabaliatti, and Véronique Baylaucq.
Montreal’s Caramel Films co-produced the film and it was shot in Quebec, Las Vegas, and Paris.
Aline is set to be released on November 18, 2020, in France but the Canadian release date has yet to be announced.
