The clip illustrates the scope of the two-part drama, depicting a very young – and already strong-voiced – Selena Quintanilla catching fireflies while singing to herself “I’m Leaving It (All) Up To You,” the golden oldie that Donny and Marie Osmond resurrected for a hit single in 1974.

From there, The trailer shows scenes from Selena’s teenage years, her early career, life on the road, some backstage drama and finally her adoration by lighter-holding audiences.

Here’s how Netflix describes the two-part series: “A coming-of-age story following Selena as she chases her dreams, and the heart-wrenching and life-changing sacrifices she and her family make as they navigate the highs and lows of success, loss, love, and music.”

Starring Serratos, Gabriel Chavarria, Ricardo Chavira, Noemí Gonzalez, and Seidy López, Selena is exec produced by Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Hiromi Kamata, Suzette Quintanilla, Simran A. Singh and Moises Zamora, and was created by Zamora, with Don Todd consulting.

Part one of Selena: The Series premieres December 4 on Netflix.
