Taylor Swift is set to release her highly anticipated Reputation tour film today and we are ridiculously hyped.

Undoubtedly the most badass T Swizzle era to date, it looks set to include glitz, country vibes, and a whole load of giant snakes. Yep, you read that right.

We wouldnt want you to go in unprepared, so here are seven things to watch out for in the Netflix film. …Ready for it?

Squad goals

If theres one thing Taylors known for, its got to be her envy-inducing girl squad. From Lorde to Gigi Hadid, shes fond of showing off her famous pals.

And the tour was no different. Featuring appearances from Camila Cabello and Charlie XCX, as well as Troye Sivan, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendes, its likely that the film will feature a famous face or two.

Going back to her roots

Cast your mind back to 2008. Taylor Swift was a 19-year-old country singer and released her Fearless album, rocking those trademark curls.

Despite how Everything Has Changed since, it seems shes definitely not forgotten where she came from, as during the tour she featured appearances from country singers like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and gave us major country vibes.

Not only that, she also performed oldies but goldies like you Belong With Me and Love Story, even sharing a video of the crowd screaming All Too Well back at her. We relate and were so glad to see shes not completely excluding herself from her own narrative.

The massive snakes

Look what you made her do! When Taylor commits to an era, she commits to an era.

And when the branding is based on serpents, what better to have on stage with her than a few absolutely massive snakes appearing during Look What You Made Me Do?

Will the screen do the snakes justice? All will be revealed soon.

The sob-worthy acoustic sets

Despite the huge stage and high production, Taylor stripped it all back for an acoustic piano set each night, mixing up which songs she was going to sing for it, with Dancing With Our Hands tied being a prominent feature.

Fans loved seeing her at the piano on one of the B stages, managing to give everyone an intimate show feel in a huge stadium – no small feat.

Trust us, whichever acoustic tunes have been recorded for the film, youll be likely to shed some tears. Tissues at the ready.

The speeches, the interviews, and behind the scenes

What would a tour film be without all the juicy behind the scenes content?

While fans who didnt get to go to the tour can live the magic of seeing Taylors mid-show speeches for the first time, the lucky ones who did still get to see something new as we get to hang out with Taylor backstage.

Styling it out

Speaking of bloopers, an honourable mention has to go to the ways in which Taylor styled out some malfunctions.

Sure, the magic of editing can sort those out in the film, but cant talk about this tour without giving a mention to her ability to rock it when things go wrong.

The woman dealt with a full storm in Sydney, messing up her words, and literally getting stuck mid-air.

The final film might be seamless, but shes still a rockstar for dealing with the downsides of a liveshow in true Taylor fashion.

The crowd of Swifties

Even if you missed out on being there, you can be sure the crowd of adoring Swifties added to the performance.

From the ones who have been there all along to the newbies, all of them are sure to make the tour film unique.

The Reputation tour saw fans screaming lyrics back at Tay, holding up ridiculous signs, and was even home to some adorable wedding proposals.

Its safe to say Swifties are a unique fanbase and we cant wait to see how they made the tour their own.
