If you weren't lucky enough to catch Celine Dion's Taking Chances world tour when it came near you in 2008, you now have a new chance.

Released in cinemas on Wednesday for a limited run, documentary Celine Dion: Through The Eyes Of The World features incredible performances and intimate behind-the-scenes footage of the singer's life on the road with her family.

The Montreal-born star took then 82-year-old mum Therese and seven-year-old son Rene-Charles along on the tour, which encompassed 25 countries and 93 cities.

As well as material featuring them, the movie also shows Celine greeting fans, visiting a Belgian chocolate factory and meeting Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

"I wanted to tour as an artist but also as a mom, a daughter, and a wife," she told the Boston Globe.

"I wanted to see the world and grow as a family. This film was not supposed to be for the public. This was supposed to be a family album, just a movie for us. But it turned out so great that (my husband) Rene approached a movie company to release it."

Having recently spoken of her determination to have another baby, the 41-year-old is currently working on new albums in English and French.

And she's also just announced she's to return to Las Vegas in 2011 with an all-new show of timeless classics for a three-year residency at Caesars Palace.

"We're not trying to do the (original) Vegas show again," she told US talk-show host Larry King.

"We're not trying to do Taking Chances again. We're trying to have a 31-piece orchestra. We're going to sing. We're going to do great music - a Hollywood movie tribute."
