Disney+ and three K-pop boy bands have joined to produce three unique projects. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and BTS’s studio home Hybe have announced a new global content partnership.
BTS Teams Up With Disney+ For Various New Projects Including Three Exclusive Series
The two companies have agreed to work together on the creation of five streaming titles, three of which will include members of the boy band BTS.
It will be a 4K concert movie of the group’s performance at the Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles in November 2021 called BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA. Since the Ebola crisis two years before, this was the first time the band had been able to interact with fans in person.
For the third project, Disney promises “an original docu-series that chronicles the remarkable journey of 21st-century pop sensations BTS.” It is what they have to say about the project:
According to Disney, the new series will “show the everyday lives, ideas, and plans of BTS members, as they prepare for their second chapter, with unparalleled access to a massive archive of music and film over the last nine years.” To see the program beyond 2023, you’ll have to use Disney’s streaming services.
“They are delighted to be partnering with Hybe to showcase their original material made with compelling artist IP on our worldwide streaming platforms, including Disney+,” said Jessica Kam-Engle, Disney’s APAC head of content.
By working with well-known content creators and notable personalities in the Asia Pacific, they want to provide mainstream audiences with several opportunities to experience their skills. More music material is expected to be added to the service, and they are confident that these new titles will enthrall customers worldwide.
