Just one day before Britney Spears heads to court for what is expected to be her most important hearing to date, Netflix is releasing a new documentary, Britney vs. Spears, which chronicles the singer's ongoing battle to be released from the conservatorship she's been under for the past 13 years.

Variety shared news of the Erin Lee Carr-directed documentary with readers on September 22, the same day that the streaming service revealed the official trailer, which featured commentary from Spears herself.

As Variety confirmed, the Netflix trailer has unfortunately not given many details in regard to who will be featured in the upcoming documentary. That said, they did note that various people would be weighing in on Spears' conservatorship and the actions of her family, including the man in charge: Jamie Spears.

Spears’ ex-boyfriend, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, will also make an appearance, as will an unnamed legal expert.

“Britney never had one person she could trust, not mom, not dad,” one person says.

"Britney had a fear that her family would barge in and take everything," added another.

As the trailer depicts, Britney vs. Spears will showcase the over-decade-long conservatorship Spears has been under as experts try and figure out exactly why she has been subjected to such a thing for so long.

"What was going on inside the conservatorship and why was she still in one if she was ‘okay?’ There was financial incentives for Jamie, for the lawyers. Britney made other people a lot of money,” one person noted.

Another person also hinted that money was a motive, saying, "I’ve represented dozens of conservatees in court. Not one of them has ever had a job."

"Text messages and a voicemail as well as new interviews with key players make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told."
