Watch the trailer for the Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds HBO documentary

Before shocking the world and passing away a mere day apart in late 2016, mother/daughter duo Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher had signed up to chronicle their already much talked about relationship for a special HBO documentary, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.

Directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens, the 95-minute documentary was filmed "in over more than a year in 2014 and 2015 leading up to Reynolds preparing to receive her Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Awardwhich Fisher presented to her," according to People.

Given the recent turn of events, the production has obviously gained new levels of importance and now, the trailer is officially out. 

From funny banter to an honest description of what it's like to be part of a famous family and, of course, a discussion of health issues, the documentary promises to be "an intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity" by presenting the "story of the family's complicated love."

Watch the trailer above and get your box of tissues ready for the documentary's premiere this Saturday, January 7 at 8pm EST on HBO.
