Pop singing sensations the Jonas Brothers make their feature-film debut in this three-dimensional concert experience. From their beginnings on the Disney Channel to the enormous fame that came after the 2007 release of their self-titled debut album, the New Jersey natives have followed a similar path to other tween pop idols like Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff. But unlike those two, the real-life brothers have mostly appeared as themselves, not adopting on-screen personae like Cyrus's Hannah Montana. For a band so young, they take their music seriously and hold their fans dear. While they've got producers working left and right to perfect their smooth look and sound, all three young men have a say in the band's creative direction.
Director Bruce Hendricks, who also directed HANNAH MONTANA/MILEY CYRUS: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS CONCERT TOUR, makes the most of the film's 3-D effects. Taking their musical act to the big screen, Kevin, Joe, and Nick delight their large pre-teen and teenage fan base with their cute looks, youthful energy, and musical optimism. The Disney film takes Jonas fans along with the band as they travel across the U.S. on their "Burning Up" tour, with guest spots by Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato. The film is packed not only with concert material, but also with backstage happenings as the band uses its pop sensibilities to try to make sense of love, newfound celebrity, and growing up. Filmed in July and August of 2008, the film focuses largely on two concert venues: Anaheim's Honda Center, and New York's Madison Square Garden. Fan favorites are performed alongside one previously unreleased Jonas Brothers track, "Love Is On Its Way."
