Disney+ and Taylor Swift are teaming up for a special event in September called “folklore: the long pond studio sessions,” which was filmed in upstate New York in September 2020. The intimate concert event will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 25th.
Disney added, “Taylor Swift, Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, and Justin Vernon created an album that crossed genres — a musical journey that allows us to cry and laugh, and during these trying times, makes us feel like we’re not quite so alone. They recorded “folklore” thousands of miles apart from each other and had never been in the same room together…until now.”
Taylor, accompanied by co-producers Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff along with a guest appearance by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), performs each song in order of her critically adored, five-star album, “folklore.” Disney also stated that, for the very first time, Swift also reveals the stories and secrets behind all 17 songs.
“folklore: the long pond studio sessions” was directed by Taylor Swift and filmed on 6 x Lumix S1H mirrorless cameras with Leica lenses embedded in the studio, along with a one Alexa LF with an Angenieux 24-290 on a Furio robotic camera with 30+ feet of curved track.
Fans of Swift will be able to stream the special event over the holiday weekend. You can also watch Lifetime’s holiday schedule, which has already started, and set a reminder to catch Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas.” Other specials and events to keep on your radar include Mariah Carey’s Christmas special, Isla Fisher’s “Godmothered,” the Selena Gomez “Friendsgiving” episode, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special,” Carrie Underwood’s “My Gift” holiday special, the Disney+ holiday slate, the Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood holiday concert, Dolly Parton’s “Holly Dolly” special, NBC’s “Grinch Musical,” and the “Disney Holiday Singalong.”
