When is The Beatles: Get Back released on Disney+?

The Beatles: Get Back will be released on Disney+ in three separate episodes on 25, 26 and 27 of November 2021.

What's the documentary about?

The documentary will focus on the making of the band's Let It Be album and their final gig on the rooftop of London's Saville Row.

The Beatles: Get Back was cut from 55 hours of unseen footage filmed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, so Disney+ will present it as three separate episodes which are roughly two hours in length each

“In many respects, Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s remarkable footage captured multiple storylines,” Peter Jackson says of the documentary.

"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."
