Experience The Beatles like you never have before.
On Wednesday (October 13), Disney Plus dropped the first trailer for the highly anticipated docuseries The Beatles: Get Back. Directed by Peter Jackson, this three-part journey takes fans inside the making of the iconic band's final album, Let It Be.
The intimate documentary is compiled from nearly sixty hours of unused footage from the recording sessions of Let It Be, including the rooftop concert held at the headquarters of the band's company, Apple. This will be the first time the concert footage will be seen in its entirety.
Fans of The Beatles will know that some of the Let It Be footage was used for the 1970 documentary film of the same name directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. The band was disappointed by the end result, however, and the rest of the footage was never released—until now.
Here's the official synopsis for The Beatles: Get Back:
The docuseries showcases The Beatles’ creative process as they attempt to write 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years. Faced with a nearly impossible deadline, the strong bonds of friendship shared by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are put to the test.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. What emerges is an unbelievably intimate portrait of The Beatles, showing how, with their backs against the wall, they could still rely on their friendship, good humor, and creative genius.
The Beatles: Get Back premieres on Disney Plus over three days, on November 25, 26, and 27. Will you be tuning in?
