Billie Eilish Gets Animated in New Trailer for ‘Happier Than Ever’ Concert Film

On Wednesday, fans got another preview of the upcoming concert film for Billie Eilish’s new album, Happier Than Ever.

Streaming exclusively on Disney+, Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles will feature live performances of all 16 songs off of the namesake album from the stage of the legendary Hollywood Bowl. For at least some songs, Eilish will perform alongside the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus and of course, Eilish’s own brother and collaborator Finneas.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and animator Patrick Osborne, the special promises animated elements, which viewers get a glimpse of in the new 30 second trailer. The clip hones in on Eilish reclining on a couch before being she is transformed into an animated character.

“Disney is incredibly iconic, so to collaborate on something like this is a huge honor,” Eilish said in a press release. “To be able to present my album in this way and dedicate it to the city that I love and grew up in is so exciting to me. I hope you love it.”

Released on July 30, Happier Than Ever was co-written with Finneas and comes as the second studio album from the artist following 2019’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Earlier on Wednesday, she shared a live performance of one of the album’s singles, “Male Fantasy.”

Eilish will be performing the album later this year, embarking on a run of festivals beginning with the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 18 followed by a world tour in February 2022.
