The three-part documentary from Lord of The Rings director, Peter Jackson, captures the tense final days of The Beatles as the group was recording their last album.
Disney+ has unveiled the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s upcoming documentary on the recording of The Beatles‘ final album, Let It Be.
Fittingly titled after the album’s lead single, Get Back is cut from more than 50 hours of footage shot by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, originally recorded during the sessions for the album, some of which was used for Lindsay-Hogg’s companion film for Let It Be. Often characterized as a volatile period for the band (thanks in large part to Lindsay-Hogg’s film,) Jackson’s take will attempt to correct the record on those sessions, capturing tension and triumph of The Fab Four’s last days as a group. The documentary will also reportedly feature the full footage of the band’s iconic final live performance from the roof of London’s Savile Row in January of 1969.
“I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about the Beatles recording together,” said Paul McCartney in a recent statement via press release. “There was hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the Let It Be film that came out. There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that,” Ringo Starr added. Get Back will be released in three parts on November 25th, 26th, and 27th.
