2019 marked the year of the Jonas Brothers, including them landing on the FanSided 250 list. But may not have been possible without their Amazon documentary, Chasing Happiness.
Since its launch in 2017, FanSided 250 has been an excellent way for fans to show off their love for sports teams, movie franchises, bands and basically anything they love. Each year, the list seems to get bigger and better. This year, in particular, there were a lot of new additions that didn’t make the cut last year or the year before. One is obviously the Jonas Brothers who are making their debut at #67.
Considering how big of a year the Jonas Brothers have had, this isn’t a surprise. The trio has burst back into the music scene with a new album, a tour and merchandise. As exciting as everything is, all of it wouldn’t exist without one thing. Of course, I’m talking about the Jonas Brothers documentary on Amazon, Chasing Happiness.
There is no doubt that Chasing Happiness played a huge role in the Jonas Brothers securing a spot on the FanSided 250 list. If anything, it helped secure them a place back in our hearts. If they hadn’t filmed the documentary, they probably wouldn’t have gotten back together. If you haven’t watched the documentary, then there are going to be some mild spoilers so if you want to watch and haven’t, be warned.

Chasing Happiness focused on the Jonas Brothers when there were just Nick, Joe and Kevin. It focused on their lives before the band as children. Eventually, it shifted into the formation of the band along with them eventually being discovered by Disney.
The documentary showcased their time at Disney, their breakup and solo projects. To conclude, Chasing Happiness featured them deciding to get back together and the rest is history.
As previously mentioned, Chasing Happiness helped catapult them back into the hearts of their fans. It also introduced them to an entirely new generation of fans, too. While some brushed the documentary aside, it was full of information that die-hard fans might not have even known. It also showed the world the ugliness of their breakup especially when they were trying to maintain their sibling relationships.
Considering how impressive the Jonas Brothers’ year has been, it’s hard to believe that none of it would have happened if not for Amazon. Chasing Happiness might not be everyone’s first pick when it comes to music documentaries. However, it does have its merits including being extremely emotional, focusing on family and having a happy ending. Now that they’re playing sold-out shows multiple times a week, it probably feels like a million years ago.
Overall, Chasing Happiness was the dream come true for the Jonas Brothers and their fans. As it was originally supposed to just focus on the band and their lives, it became much more. Chasing Happiness lived up to its title and happiness began for many when the Jonas Brothers reunited. It’s clear how big of a role Chasing Happiness played in the band’s reunion and them landing on FanSided’s 250 of 2019.
