Billie Eilish has a cinematic concert experience coming to Disney+. Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles will premiere on the platform on September 3.
A Very Special Experience For Fans
Billie’s newest album, Happier than Ever, sets the tone perfectly for the concert film. The Disney+ original will feature an intimate performance of every song in the album’s sequential order, for the first time; from the stage of the legendary Hollywood Bowl.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and by Oscar-winner Patrick Osborne, the special will also include animated elements. It will take viewers on a dreamlike journey through Billie’s hometown of Los Angeles and its most iconic backdrops. Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles features FINNEAS – Billie’s brother and collaborator. The film was produced by Interscope Films and Darkroom Productions, in association with Nexus Studios and Aron Levine Productions; with Kerry Asmussen as the Live Concert Director and Pablo Berron as Director of Photography.
The Concert Film Will Introduce the Songs on Happier Than Ever
About the concert film, Billie said, “Disney is incredibly iconic, so to collaborate on something like this is a huge honor. To be able to present my album in this way and dedicate it to the city that I love and grew up in is so exciting to me. I hope you love it.”
Director Robert Rodriguez shared, “We are all huge admirers of Billie and Finneas here in our household. They are such impressive, world-class talents that it’s a real honor to work with them on this film. The way the narrative story and animated pieces weave through her incredible concert performance makes this a spectacular event that is truly unique.”
Finally, Michael Paull, president of Disney+, shared his opinion as well. “Billie has captivated fans around the world with her soulful voice and raw, honest lyrics, and we are proud to bring this incredibly cinematic and unique concert experience to Disney+.“
The premiere date comes right after the July 30 release of Happier Than Ever, Eilish’s follow-up album to her debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which claimed Album of the Year among six Grammys last year.
