LOS ANGELES — Walt Disney Co. announced a deal on Monday that will bring a documentary series and concert featuring K-pop band BTS to the Disney+ streaming service.
The series will debut on Disney+ next year and include music and footage of the South Korean group from the past nine years. Called “BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star,” it will showcase “the daily lives, thoughts and plans” of the group’s members “as they prepare for their second chapter,” Disney said in a statement.
Last month, BTS announced the band was taking a break while members worked on solo projects.
Disney’s agreement with BTS management company HYBE also allows for Disney+ to run a recording of a stadium concert in Los Angeles in November 2021, the group’s first performance before fans after a two-year interruption forced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
