On Tuesday (September 8), the streaming platform announced that it’ll be releasing an “all-access documentary” on the K-pop group on October 14. As per Variety, the film, which has been dubbed Blackpink: Light up the Sky, will follow the four-piece during their recording process for their new album, daily lives and their monumental set at 2019 Coachella. Additional interviews with Jennie, Jissoo, Lisa and Rosé will also be featured throughout the upcoming film.
"We can’t wait to share our personal stories with Blinks all over the world," the band said in a statement. "We hope this film will bring joy and light to the viewers, and they will enjoy seeing our journey together on screen from the past four years."
To make the announcement more fitting, Netflix will also make each of the bandmates faces' available as profile icons on the day of its release. The film was directed by Caroline Suh and produced by Radical Media. The executive producers include Jon Kamen, David Sirulnick and Zara Duffy for RadicalMedia, while Cara Mones serves as the producer. Word of Blackpink doc was teased by Netflix in February when Blinks inquired about the project via Twitter. "We currently don’t have any info on when that’ll be released. Make sure to follow our social handle for updates though!" the account responded to a fan's speculative message.
Light Up with Sky will drop less than two weeks after their anticipated debut album aptly titled The Album on October 2. The set will include "How You Like That," as well as their recent Selena Gomez collaboration, "Ice Cream."
