Olivia Rodrigo found incredible success when she dropped her debut single “Drivers License” just a little over a year ago, and then again when she released her chart-obliterating first album SOUR. For those who weren’t paying attention to her beginnings on the Disney+ show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, it was as if she came out of nowhere. But you’re in luck: On Thursday, (Feb. 17) Rodrigo announced a new project mapping out her road to success.
The 18-year-old’s upcoming documentary project, Olivia Rodrigo: Driving Home 2 U (a SOUR film), is debuting exclusively on Disney+ on March 25. It is directed by Stacey Lee and produced by Interscope Films and Supper Club.
The title is a reference to the track that started it all, but also reflective of the documentary’s format. According to the press release, Rodrigo will take viewers on a road trip from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles while recounting how she made her Grammy-nominated debut record, sharing how she felt navigating her life at the time. The film will also include the pop star’s personal stories, behind-the-scenes and never-before-seen footage both in and out of the studio, as well as intimate interviews.
Rodrigo’s film will feature new arrangements of multi-platinum tracks such as “Good 4 U” and “Deja Vu,” and 11 live performances that will include guest artists such as Jacob Collier, Blu DeTiger and Towa Bird.
“This is a unique film experience where for the first time, fans will understand how her album came to be and why it was such a personal journey for Olivia,” said Ayo Davis, Disney Branded Television president, in a statement. “This is not a concert film per se, but really, an opportunity to experience firsthand how Olivia Rodrigo became one of the biggest music stars of the day – and a chance to see her perform the songs from SOUR like never before.”
“Driving Home 2 U is such a unique and fresh approach to a music film, and that’s just what we’ve come to expect from Olivia,” added John Janick, chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M and Interscope Films. “It’s an authentic look into her creative process, her incredible drive and who she is as an artist and person. We’re so proud to have co-produced this film with Supper Club and are thrilled that it has found a home on Disney +.”
