Jonas Brothers documentary ‘Chasing Happiness’ to premiere in June

WATCH: The Jonas Brothers announce their upcoming documentary, 'Chasing Happiness'

Not only are the Jonas Brothers set to embark on an extensive world tour later this year and release their first album in a decade, but they’ve just unveiled plans for a brand new documentary, entitled Chasing Happiness.

The announcement came on Wednesday night via YouTube, in which the trio Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas, are seen together in an on-set dressing room exchanging banter with Amazon’s Alexa, before asking the A.I. when their documentary premieres.

“Alexa. Who is your favourite Jonas Brother?” asks Joe, 29. “I don’t have an opinion on that,” it responds. “Oh really?” asks Nick, 26. “Because Alexa, you look really, really beautiful today.”

“Thanks. You too. You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful, it’s true,” Alexa responds, referring to the James Blunt hit, You’re Beautiful.

Eventually, the brothers find out that Chasing Happiness premieres on June 4, exclusively through Amazon Prime Video.

The John Lloyd Taylor-directed film is intended to capture a deeper insight into the Jonas family as they once struggled to make ends meet before becoming a household name across the globe.

Chasing Happiness features an abundance of never-before-seen footage from the early days of not only the brothers’ careers, but their lives as well.

It also documents their sudden hiatus in 2013, their adventures as solo artists and then their eventual rekindling as not only a band but as siblings again and what came to be the inspiration behind the Jonas Brothers’ upcoming album, Happiness Begins (2019).
