“Blackpink: Light Up the Sky” will follow group members Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé’s recording process, their everyday lives as K-pop stars, as well as their history-making performance at last year’s Coachella festival. The film will feature exclusive interviews and footage of the quartet.
Netflix teased the possibility of a Blackpink project back in February, when fans wondered about its existence on Twitter. Netflix then replied to a fan’s speculation, “We currently don’t have any info on when that’ll be released. Make sure to follow our social handle for updates though!”
“Blackpink: Light Up the Sky” joins the streaming service’s growing library of music documentaries and concert films, including Beyonce’s “Homecoming,” Taylor Swift’s “Miss Americana” and Lady Gaga’s “Five Foot Two.”
The upcoming film is directed by Caroline Suh, the creator behind Netflix documentary “Salt Fat Acid Heat,” and produced by Radical Media. The executive producers are Jon Kamen, David Sirulnick and Zara Duffy for RadicalMedia, and Cara Mones is the producer.
Blackpink recently collaborated with Selena Gomez for their newest single “Ice Cream” and featured on Lady Gaga’s bilingual song “Sour Candy” from the artist’s latest album “Chromatica.” The quartet’s hit single, “How You Like That,” released in June, notched 100 million streams in less than a month. “Ice Cream” and “How You Like That” will both appear on their debut album, set for release via YG Entertainment and Interscope Records on Oct. 2.
Blackpink is managed by South Korea’s YG Entertainment.
