New Beach Boys Documentary Out in May on Disney+


The Beach Boys, a new documentary on the formative pop group, is coming to Disney+ on May 24. Featuring new interviews with original members Brian Wilson, Mike Love, and Al Jardine, the film is directed by Frank Marshall—a decorated Hollywood producer and the director of recent Bee Gees doc How Can You Mend a Broken Heart—and Thom Zimny, whose credits include the 2018 film Springsteen on Broadway.

Other interviewees include Lindsey Buckingham, Janelle Monáe, Ryan Tedder, Don Was and sometime Beach Boys members David Marks and Bruce Johnston. An official soundtrack will be out May 24 (via Capitol/UMe), and the group’s 1964 album Shut Down, Vol. 2 will get a vinyl reissue on March 29. The previously announced book The Beach Boys by the Beach Boys will be out April 2, via Genesis Publications.
