Following in the steps of fellow Disney teen icon Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers will reportedly make their own 3-D concert film debut in 2009. The film will feature footage from the group’s upcoming “Burning Up” concert tour, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of bandmate-brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick.
“More than just a concert, this film will take moviegoers inside the band’s creative process, and present them in a very intimate and entertaining way,” Oren Aviv, president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, said in a statement.
The Jonas Brothers tour will kick off in Toronto on July 4; in addition, the band also can be seen this summer in the Disney Channel original movie “Camp Rock” premiering June 20. The trio has a Disney Channel series “J.O.N.A.S.!” debuting in the fall, and its next album, “A Little Bit Longer,” is due out in August.
The band hails from Wyckoff, NJ, and all three brothers attended Eastern Christian High School in North Haledon, NJ, according to published reports. They have released two albums – “It’s About Time” in 2006, and “Jonas Brothers” in 2007.
The Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana film is the top-grossing concert film of all time, earning $65 million to date.
