New Zealand's Uber director Peter Jackson has teased us with what might be the ultimate Beatles' film. This film will be a reimagined Get Back documentary that was originally shot and released by UK-filmmaker Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1970 to document that album's release. Most folks have seen the rooftop concert captured by Hogg, and the negativity that it generated, but few have seen the behind-the-scenes fun -- yes, fun -- The Beatles had while recording their final album as a group.
The Beatles: Get Back takes us back in time to The Beatles’ intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history. The film draws from hours of material originally captured for director Hogg. One can imagine filmmaker Jackson's attention to detail will be on full display when the film is finally released.
The release date is scheduled for August 2021 by Walt Disney Studios.
