Director Peter Jackson has released an exclusive glimpse into his upcoming documentary The Beatles: Come back for fans everywhere to enjoy. The 5-minute special look is available to fans worldwide on TheBeatles.com and streaming on Disney +.
Peter Jackson’s “The Beatles: Get Back” is a unique cinematic experience that takes the audience back to the time of the intimate recording sessions of the Beatles at a crucial moment in music history. The film shows the warmth, camaraderie and creative genius that defined the legacy of the legendary foursome. “The Beatles: Get Back” was filmed in January 1969 and compiled from over 60 hours of invisible footage (filmed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg) and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, all of which have been brilliantly restored. It is the story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr planning their first live show in over two years and planning to write and rehearse 14 new songs that were originally slated for release on an accompanying live album . The film shows – for the first time in its entirety – the Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the unforgettable rooftop concert in London’s Savile Row, as well as other songs and classical compositions from the band’s last two albums, Abbey Road and let’s see it is.
