Disney+ will exclusively premiere Olivia Rodrigo’s film Driving Home 2 U, which will chronicle the creation of her 2021 breakthrough record Sour. Rodrigo shares in the trailer: “I think I just wanted to tell people what was going on in the back of my head in a way that was proud and not ashamed. Coming from this place of hurt and you manage to turn it into something that you’re proud of – there’s like nothing better than that.”
The hybrid film, directed by Stacey Lee, ‘paints the picture of Sour using behind-the-scenes footage captured in the studio and throughout Rodrigo’s day-to-day life, from her process of transfixing hyper-personal experiences into chart-topping songs to her parlay into the realm of pop’s elite as a young woman.’
Driving Home 2 U is set to debut on March 25. Shortly after the film’s release, the 18-year-old Rodrigo will make her first appearance at the Grammy Awards where she’s nominated for seven awards including Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Music Video, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.
