Beyoncé just dropped a Thanksgiving Day surprise that's got the Beyhive buzzing with excitement.

During the live broadcast of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Nov. 23, the pop star appeared in a rare, personal video message to introduce a new trailer for her upcoming concert documentary, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé. The clip, one of several released in recent weeks, was later posted online.

"Hey! It's Beyoncé, wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving," the "Halo" singer says in an Instagram video, smiling. "And I'm so honored to share with you the first look at the new Renaissance film trailer."

The trailer, released in full on YouTube, begins with Beyoncé giving her and husband Jay-Z's youngest daughter, Rumi, a tip on how to hold the smartphone.

"Rumi, can I teach you a trick?" the singer tells the 6-year-old. "You've got to turn it to the side."

More clips showing Beyoncé with her family are shown, including a shot of her riding a golf cart with Rumi, her twin brother Sir, Jay-Z and their eldest daughter Blue Ivy. Footage is also shown of the 11-year-old performing onstage as a backup dancer with to her mom during her Renaissance world tour, which ended in October.

"Time is my biggest obstacle," Beyoncé says in a voiceover. "It's impossible to not realize how fast it's going when you're looking through the eyes of your children."

The singer continues, as footage of Diana Ross performing at her birthday show is shown, "I think about all of my heroes and all that they endured. I know that all of my struggle and sacrifice is opening the door for the next. They are the new beginning."

Beyoncé concludes, "I have nothing to prove to anyone at this point. We are creating our own world. This is my reward. Nobody can take that away from me."

Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé is set for release Dec. 1.
