Peter Jackson’s Beatles Doc Split Into Three-Part Series To Premiere Over Thanksgiving
Peter Jackson‘s Beatles documentary, The Beatles: Get Back, will be presented as a three-part series during Thanksgiving weekend.
The Beatles: Get Back was initially scheduled for theatrical release on August 27, but it will now drop as a three-part miniseries this fall. Each episode will be about two hours in length and will drop on November 25, 26 and 27, 2021, exclusively on Disney+.
Jackson collected nearly 60 hours of footage captured by Let It Be director Michael Lindsay-Hogg in January 1969. Jackspon spent nearly three years restoring and editing the footage recorded during the band’s recording sessions for their 12th studio album.
“In many respects, Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s remarkable footage captured multiple storylines,” Jackson said. “The story of friends and of individuals. It is the story of human frailties and of a divine partnership. It is a detailed account of the creative process, with the crafting of iconic songs under pressure, set amid the social climate of early 1969.”
“But it’s not nostalgia—it’s raw, honest, and human. Over six hours, you’ll get to know The Beatles with an intimacy that you never thought possible,” he added.
Ahead of the documentary’s release, “The Beatles: Get Back” book will come out on October 12. It will feature transcriptions of the band’s recorded conversations and hundreds of exclusive, never before published photos from the three weeks of sessions.
