Daft Punk are ready to get unmasked, or Unchained rather.

In the new documentary “Daft Punk Unchained,” which originally debuted on French TV in June and is expected to soon receive a U.S. release date, the French duo and their influential legacy are put under the spotlight for a piece that “plunges into the unique world of the Robots” and their “quest for liberty and independence” from 1996 through their famous Grammy 2014 sweep.

On Thursday (September 24), a one-minute trailer for the film was revealed, boasting cameos from Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Paul Williams, and Nile Rodgers, whom discuss the importance of the French duo. "Who revolutionized dance music the most?" West asks in the teaser. "I think you'd say 'Daft Punk.'"

Directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre and co-written by Delpierre and Marina Rozenman, the doc also features other talking heads like Michel Gondry, Pete Tong, Giorgio Morodor, Peter Lindbergh, Todd Edwards and more.
