The Greatest Day: His latest career project comes after Robbie and Mark Owen impressed Take That fans as they reunited in a funny Instagram video on Sunday.
Fans were so excited to see the singers together, they rushed to thank Aida for sharing the clip.
The reunion comes after Mark recently said he would “love” Robbie to join Take That.
Take That formed in 1989 and have gone on to achieve 12 number one singles on the UK Singles Chart along with eight number one albums and are currently the most successful boy band in UK chart history.
The original line-up included Robbie, 47, who left the band in 1995 and went on to have an exceptionally successful solo career. The group disbanded a year later.
In 2006, the band – minus Robbie – reunited and enjoyed great success again.
Robbie rejoined the band in 2010 for his new album Progress but quit at once in 2014.
Mark has said previously that he, Gary Barlow, and Howard Donald are planning their next LP as a three-piece, but hope Robbie will join them at some point.
Take that fans have also been waiting for the release of Greatest Days.
The film follows a young boy band inspired by, but not quite the same, real-life pop group, and stars newcomers Aaron Bryan, Dalphine Currie, Joshua Young, Mark Samaras, and Mervyn Noronha.
