Betty White’s passing took place just weeks before she was supposed to turn 100. Now movie producers are promoting a new Betty White documentary called “Betty White: A Celebration. However, things don’t look good for them. It appears that this new project is a partial rehash of a doc on Betty White that was released in 2018.

This all started after an eagle-eyed fan of the late Betty White, pointed out to Page Six that in the trailer for the film is recycled. Interviewees like Ryan Reynolds, Carol Burnett, Alex Trebeck and Valerie Bertinelli are wearing the same exact outfits as in interviews for 2018’s PBS doc, Betty White: First Lady of Television. Celebration is produced by Mike Trinklein and Steve Boettcher, the director of First Lady.

Upon further inspection, the “Celebration” trailer footage of White’s celeb friends all saying her name appears about one minute into “First Lady.” It ran on Netflix in several regions from January 2020 until January 11th of this year. There also seem to be some of the same clips used from White’s television career and footage of her work with animals.

A rep for Fathom Events told PageSix, “There will be some footage included from the 2018 film but the majority of ‘Betty White: A Celebration’ is new content.’” When asked for specifics, they sent a press release. While it didn’t fully clear things up, it does say that White spoke with them just a week and a half before she passed away on New Year’s Eve of a stroke.

Celebration includes Betty’s final on-camera appearance, recorded just ten days before her passing. It’s special message expresses Betty’s deep appreciation for her fans and demonstrates that even in her final days. It also appears to have added new guests like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and Jay Leno.
