Peter Jackson’s Beatles documentary The Beatles: Get Back, originally set for a theatrical release last year, is now a three-part, six-hour documentary miniseries that will air on Disney+ this fall, as Deadline reports. Each of the two-hour episodes will air from November 25-27; the original film was set to be released via via Walt Disney Studios.
To put the film together, Jackson culled from over 60 hours of footage captured by Let It Be director Michael Lindsay-Hogg in January 1969. The Beatles: Get Back will mark the first time the band’s iconic, final rooftop performance will be seen in its entirety.
“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.”
