In celebration of Disney+ Day, BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA—the electrifying concert film from global superstars BTS—and a special sneak peek at Lucasfilm’s upcoming Disney+ Original series Andor are now streaming on Disney+.
BTS: PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA showcases the live performances of the BTS concerts at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium in late 2021 (November 27–28 and December 1–2). The concert film is stage-focused and includes performances of the Grammy®-nominated music group’s hit songs “Dynamite,” “Butter,” and “Permission to Dance.” BTS, an acronym of Bangtan Sonyeondan or “Beyond the Scene,” is a South Korean boy band that has been capturing the hearts of millions of fans globally since its debut in June 2013. RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook make up group. The film is produced by HYBE and directed by Sam Wrench and Junsoo Park.
Andor, premiering September 21 with three episodes, explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue—one in which Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero. Diego Luna reprises his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw. The series’ executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna, and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy serves as both creator and showrunner.
