The first movie about Aaliyah Dana Haughton will be hitting the airwaves this November.

The folks at HipHollywood.com have the first sneak peak. Check out the teaser below.

This movie is based on the book by Christopher John Farley, “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.” It stars Alexandra Shipp of House of Anubis and details the rise to stardom and heartbreaking end of the singer, dancer and actress.

From HipHollywood:

The Lifetime Original Film also stars Rachael Crawford and Sterling Jarvis as Aaliyah’s parents, Diane and Mike Haughton, Anthony Grant as Damon Dash, Izaak Smith as Timbaland, Elise Neal as Gladys Knight and Chattrisse Dolabaille as Missy Elliot.

Although buzz around the biopic is at an all time high, it has had a few rough patches. The family has voiced their disapproval of the project and the film’s initial star, Zendaya, backed out because of those concerns.

First impressions? Knowing that the family isn’t as involved will you watch?
