Disney+ Announces The Beach Boys Documentary

Disney+ Announces The Beach Boys Documentary

It was back in 2021 when Disney+ released Peter Jackson’s docuseries The Beatles: Get Back, and now Disney is ready to put the spotlight on a band that was considered the rival of the Beatles at around the same time—and no, they’re not the Rolling Stones.

Here’s the first trailer for The Beach Boys documentary:

Here’s the official description:

“The Beach Boys” is a celebration of the legendary band that revolutionized pop music, and the iconic, harmonious sound they created that personified the California dream, captivating fans for generations and generations to come. The documentary traces the band from humble family beginnings and features never-before-seen footage and all-new interviews with The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks, Bruce Johnston, plus other luminaries in the music business, including Lindsey Buckingham, Janelle Monáe, Ryan Tedder, and Don Was. Viewers will also hear from the group’s Carl and Dennis Wilson in their own words, plus view a new interview with Blondie Chaplin and hear audio from Ricky Fataar.

It’s also worth noting that the movie is directed by Frank Marshall, who has helmed documentaries for the BeeGees (How Can You Mend a Broken Heart) and Carole King and James Taylor (Just Call Out My Name).

Though The Beach Boys did start out as an easygoing Surf-Rock band, the evolution of their style and songwriting is considered to be one of the most influential when it comes to music—especially thanks to their composer/songwriter Brian Wilson, who is considered by many artists (even the Beatles’ Paul McCartney) to be one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Admittedly, Wilson’s story did get the spotlight in the biopic Love & Mercy starring Paul Dano and John Cusack, but The Beach Boys looks to be putting the focus on the entire family and just how the band was formed and how they changed throughout the years.

The Beach Boys starts streaming on Disney+ starting May 24.
