THE BEATLES Get Back trailer has arrived featuring unseen footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, ahead of the release of Peter Jackson new documentary miniseries in November.
It was just over 50 years ago that The Beatles broke up. The Fab Four had released their final album in 1970’s Let It Be, which was accompanied by a documentary film of the same name. The footage of the band was captured during the album’s 1969 recording sessions, but much of it has remained unseen, until now.
Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson has been given unprecedented access to over 57 hours of the most intimate footage of The Beatles ever.
Fully restored, the filmmaker has expanded what was going to be a cinematic movie into a six-hour, three-part miniseries for Disney+ next month.
And today the latest trailer landed giving fans a new look at some never-before-seen footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr recording together.
At one point Paul is heard jokingly saying: “It’s going to be such a comical thing like in 50 years time that they broke up because Yoko sat on an amp.”

This comment is quite apt given that the footage is being seen publicly just over 50 years after that was said.
Titled The Beatles: Get Back, the documentary miniseries will include a restored recording of the band’s last live performance on the rooftop of Apple Corps HQ on Savile Row.
Disney’s Bob Iger said: “As a huge Beatles fan myself, I am absolutely thrilled that Disney+ will be the home for this extraordinary documentary series by the legendary filmmaker Peter Jackson.
“This phenomenal collection of never-before-seen footage offers an unprecedented look at the close camaraderie, genius songwriting, and indelible impact of one of the most iconic and culturally influential bands of all time, and we can’t wait to share The Beatles: Get Back with fans around the world.”
While Peter Jackson said: “In many respects, Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s remarkable footage captured multiple storylines. The story of friends and of individuals.
“It is the story of human frailties and of a divine partnership. It is. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
