Following the success of original documentaries about “The Beatles”, “Bon Jon Jovi”, and “U2”, Disney has announced details on a brand-new documentary film called “Road Diary: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band”.

This documentary offers the most in-depth look ever at the creation of their legendary live performances in the new documentary featuring unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to their 2023-2024 world tour.

“Road Diary: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band” opens a new door to Springsteen’s creative process for fans around the world, sharing fly-on-the-wall footage of band rehearsals and special moments backstage — as well as hearing from Springsteen himself.

The new documentary will launch on Hulu and Disney+ later this year in October, though no exact release date has been announced.

These conversations follow Springsteen closely as he develops the story he wants to tell with this tour’s setlist — interspersed with rare archival clips of The E Street Band, underscoring themes of life, loss, mortality and community. In this way, it serves as an essential and never-before-seen chapter in an autobiographical series spanning Springsteen’s memoir Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway, and the films Western Stars and Letter to You.

The film was directed by Springsteen’s longtime collaborator, Emmy and GRAMMY Award winner Thom Zimny (Western Stars, The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, Springsteen on Broadway, Willie Nelson & Family, Sly), and produced by Zimny, Jon Landau, Bruce Springsteen, Adrienne Gerard and Sean Stuart.

The film begins with a one-of-a-kind look at the band’s preparation process, following them from their earliest rehearsals in Red Bank, New Jersey, to performances for tens-of-thousands across continents. All the while, fans get the chance to experience professionally shot footage from the 2023-2024 tour for the first time ever — in addition to hearing firsthand from band members about performing on stage with Springsteen and how they keep the magic of The E Street Band as potent as ever.

Roger’s POV:  Disney seems to be leaning heavily on documentaries and concerts about some of the most well-known artists, with just this month Disney+ getting new specials featuring Queen, The Beach Boys and The Beatles.  Also, 20th Century Studios is making a film about Bruce Springsteen, so this all makes sense from a corporate synergy point of view.
