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
