SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Feb. 26 (UPI / Gephardt Daily) — Olivia Rodrigo has a musical movie coming to Disney+ in March.

“Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u” (a SOUR movie) will premiere March 25 on the streaming service. The documentary-style film will chronicle Rodrigo’s journey from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles and share his memories of writing and creating his debut album.

Rodrigo is perhaps best known for his appearance as Nini in “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” which was based on the Disney film series shot in Utah. The series was also filmed in Utah for the first two years of its three-year run.

The project will include new live arrangements of Rodrigo’s songs, interviews and previously unseen footage.

“Along the way, Rodrigo recounts memories of writing and creating her first record album and shares her feelings as a young woman navigating a specific time in her life,” an official description read.

Rodrigo, who turned 19 this month, will perform all 11 songs from “Sour” at various locations including Mojave Airplane Boneyard and Red Rock Canyon State Park. She will be joined by Jacob Collier, Blu DeTiger and Towa Bird.

“This is a unique cinematic 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 Disney Branded Television President Ayo Davis. .

“It’s not a concert film per se, but truly an opportunity to experience first-hand how Olivia Rodrigo became one of the biggest music stars of the day – and a chance to see her perform the songs. of ‘Sour’ like never before.”
