Lewis continued to display his quirky sense of humor as he frowned in a black wig and dress like Wednesday Addams, portraying characters from Orange is the New Black and Money Heist.
Finally. he posed as himself to announce the movie How I’m Feeling Now, which will be released on April 5.
The documentary explores the year Lewis rose to global fame, his struggle with Tourette’s syndrome and how he tries to reconnect with friends and family as he returns to Scotland after rising to fame.

Lewis, who is currently touring Europe, said: ‘I’m pretty terrified for people to see this documentary if I’m being honest, but I’m also very proud of it. I hope you enjoy it x’
On Twitter, he posted, “I’ve made a NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY,” before hinting to fans in the replies that his close friend and former One Direction member Niall Horan might appear.
The behind-the-scenes all-access documentary is directed by BAFTA winner Joe Pearlman.
It wants to show “an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words.”
Digging under the popular clichés surrounding the most unlikely of pop stars reveals a deeply thoughtful and self-reflective young man at a unique crossroads in his life.
The Scottish musician revealed last year that he had Tourette’s neurological disorder – which is characterized by a combination of involuntary noises and movements called tics.
A moving video of Lewis on stage in Frankfurt showed the moment fans took over singing for him as he struggled with Tourette’s symptoms last month.

Support: Lewis Capaldi fans ended up singing his hit song Someone You Loved in Frankfurt last month after the star experienced Tourette’s symptoms midway through the show
However, the public quickly showed their support for the star and continued to sing the song en masse.
Capaldi then seemed to regain his composure as he continued the performance.
Last month he went public with his new girlfriend Elia MacDowall, 23, at the BRITs after party and was said to be “all over” with the young actress.
They kissed and partied together at 180 The Strand during the Universal Music bash after previously keeping their romance out of the spotlight.
The singer rose to fame in 2019 after his hit single Somebody You Loved topped the UK Singles Chart for six weeks – and recently became the UK’s most-streamed song of all time.
He has now reached four number ones and his debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
His second album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent will be released in May, before performing at Glastonbury Festival in the summer.
Sam Bridger, Head of Music Film at Pulse Films said: ‘This began as a film about the process of making the ‘difficult second album’, but ended up being an astonishingly unguarded portrait of the pressure of fame on young shoulders, exploring of one of the great conversations of our time – mental health.
“Such unfiltered access to one of the world’s biggest stars is a testament to the bravery of Lewis and his team who invited us into their world, and to the incredible confidence and narrative instincts of director Joe Pearlman, producer Alice Rhodes and the production team. ‘
Stuart Souter, BMG Vice President Films said: ‘This is much more than just a musical film.
“With the support of his family, Lewis has opened up in a unique way. Like his music, we are confident that it will appeal to people around the world.”
