Disney releases new trailer for Peter Jackson's Beatles documentary series

• In 1969, director Michael Lindsay-Hogg was granted unrestricted access to the recording sessions for what would become the album Let It Be. He also captured footage of The Beatles rooftop performance, the last live performance the band would ever play. Some of the footage made its way into a documentary released in the wake of the band's breakup (the documentary was also titled Let It Be), but hours of footage and audio was left unused and locked in a vault for 50 years. Director Peter Jackson is the first person to be given access to this footage.

• Jackson restored the footage using the same techniques used for his WWI documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, and the series was created using 60 hours of unseen footage that was shot over the 21 day marathon recording session. Jackson aims to show the "reality" of the recording session instead of only focusing on the tension between band members. It will also feature the full 42 minute rooftop performance.

• The series will premiere on Disney+ over the course of three days starting November 25 and each episode is two hours long.

idk i'm not a beatles fanatic, but the restored footage looks incredible

The Beatles do nothing for me 🤷

The footage does look good!
I am here for future gifs of my girl Mo

She looks great!
It's actually unreal how good the restored footage looks.
Looking forward to watching this.
🤷‍♀️ I love the Beatles and this looks great! So cool how footage can be restored like this
Appreciate Peter Jackson’s artist journey from adapting material for film to just adapting film.
In recent years it's been kind of blowing my mind that at this point in their careers / in the end~ they were all still in their 20s. I mean, I wouldn't have thought they were any older either but still it's like... wat
I always thought they were in their thirties when they broke up 🤯!
It's crazy to think now how young they were!
George was 25 at this point!

Yea, I definitely didn't grasp how much they did in how little time until I was older.

I just wanted to chime in here and say that the trailer is obviously cut like a documentary, but the quality of the footage and some of the dramatic beats have tricked my brain into thinking it’s a biopic
The Beatles mean nothing to me, but I'm still going to watch because the restoration is just. Wow. Incredible.
Is They Shall Not Grow Old interesting? (and anybody knows where it's streaming?)
Well I'm excited for this. It's something truly special we're getting and I'm gonna enjoy seeing George in HD.
daaaamn that restoration! had no idea that was their last live performance either. anyway this looks like a less funny spinal tap, it just doesn’t feel like a doc with the way it’s shot

for the 5 people on ontd who actually like the beatles - what are your favourite songs off the album?
apart from the title track i never got into it tbh but i like their other music so
It's not my favorite Beatles album but I like most of the songs on it: Two Of Us, Across the Universe, I Me Mine, Let It Be, and The Long and Winding Road are highlights for me.
For You Blue
