The Beatles: Get Back will be hitting Disney+ next month, and a trailer for the three-part documentary has finally been released.
The nearly four-minute trailer is chock-full of intimate footage of the Beatles making Let It Be and prepping for their iconic rooftop concert. Per the trailer’s description on YouTube, “Made entirely from never-before-seen, restored footage, it provides the most intimate and honest glimpse into the creative process and relationship between John, Paul, George, and Ringo ever filmed.”
The description also noted, “The docuseries is compiled from nearly 60 hours of unseen footage shot over 21 days, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and from more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been locked in a vault for over half a century. Jackson is the only person in 50 years to have been given access to this Beatles treasure trove, all of which has now been brilliantly restored.”
The Beatles: Get Back will premiere on Disney+ on November 25, 26 and 27.
The making of Let It Be has been long assumed to be full of tension, but Jackson said in a statement when the film was originally announced that wasn’t the case.
“I was relieved to discover the reality is very different to the myth,” said Jackson. “After reviewing all the footage and audio that Michael Lindsay-Hogg shot 18 months before they broke up, it’s simply an amazing historical treasure-trove. Sure, there’s moments of drama – but none of the discord this project has long been associated with.
He added, “Watching John, Paul, George, and Ringo work together, creating now-classic songs from scratch, is not only fascinating – it’s funny, uplifting and surprisingly intimate. I’m thrilled and honored to have been entrusted with this remarkable footage – making the movie will be a sheer joy.”
Like the most recent Beatles film, 2016’s The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, this project is being made with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison.
