Taylor Swift's Eras Tour has come to a close…for now, wrapping the first record-breaking leg after an eight-month trip around the world and several sold out shows.

In the midst of it all, the 33-year-old musical icon released a concert film that shattered pre-sale and attendance records worldwide in movie theaters, and it's now coming to a streaming service near you!

In conjunction with her upcoming 34th birthday, Taylor announced that the tour's film, titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, will be released on streaming services and available to rent starting December 13th, aka her birthday.

In addition, the rentable film will include extra bits that didn't make it into the theatrical version, like the songs "Wildest Dreams," "The Archer," and "Long Live." Taylor shared the news with a snippet from the film.

"Hi! Well, so, basically I have a birthday coming up and I was thinking a fun way to celebrate the year we've had together would be to make The Eras Tour Concert Film available for you to watch at home!" she penned. 

"Very happy to be able to tell you that the extended version of the film including 'Wildest Dreams,' 'The Archer', and 'Long Live' will be available to rent on demand in the US, Canada & additional countries to be announced soon starting on… you guessed it, December 13."

The Eras Tour, movie version, was filmed across three shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California through August and announced later that month in a move that surprised many film studios, causing several films slated for release around that time to push their schedules back.

"What a truly mind blowing thing you've turned The Eras Tour Concert Film into," Taylor shared after the film opened. "I've been watching videos of you guys in the theaters dancing and prancing and recreating choreography, creating inside jokes, casting spells, getting engaged, and just generally creating the exact type of joyful chaos we're known for.
