Earlier this summer at VidCon, YouTube sensation Lilly Singh debuted a sneak peek of her first feature film, A Trip to Unicorn Island. YouTube announced that it will premiere in early 2016 on YouTube Red, its new paid subscription service.
The film – produced by Astronauts Wanted – is a documentary about Singh’s first-ever world tour, made possible through her successful ||Superwoman|| YouTube channel. Singh has nearly 7 million subscribers and over 900,000 views, and she recently ranked No. 8 on Forbes’ list of top-earning YouTube stars.
In the film, Singh talks candidly about her battle with depression and how “Unicorn Island” – her metaphorical happy place – has helped her through her struggles.
“Unicorn Island is that state I reach when I decide ‘Everything’s going to be okay, and I’m happy because life is great,'” Singh says in the trailer. “There’s no wrong or there’s no right, and no one’s arguing over what’s real or what’s not real. It’s just things that make us happy.”
