The official trailer for “The Beatles: Get Back” has been released. This docu-series produced by Disney and directed by Peter Jackson is staged from completely unpublished recorded and restored sequences.
When Peter Jackson enters the intimacy of the Beatles
On the one hand, there is the great Peter Jackson. New Zealand Director, he is famous for giving the world the incredible trilogy The Lord of the Rings. It has become quite rare since 2015 and the release of The Battle of the Five Armies, the latest installment in his Hobbit trilogy. Since then he has produced Mortal Engines and directed the documentary For fallen soldiers, both released in 2018. But if he was also absent from the screens, it’s because Peter Jackson was making a documentary about The Beatles.
On the other side, there is the legendary Beatles group. Rock group founded in 1957 by John Lennon, the Quarrymen changed their name to The Beatles in 1960 and quickly became a definitely cult musical quartet. Consisting of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, the group becomes one of the most iconic musical groups of all time.
The Beatles – Get Back : trailer
Peter Jackson therefore decided to meet the Beatles. The filmmaker has indeed dissected more than 56 hours of never-before-seen footage and 150 hours of Beatles audio recordings, captured from January 2 to 31, 1969 in their studio. Most of these images and recordings had been locked in a safe for half a century. The feature film, produced by WingNut Films (Peter Jackson’s box) and Apple Corps, and titled The Beatles: Get Back, obviously had the approval of the remaining members of the group, namely Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Made entirely from unseen restored footage, the film offers the most intimate and honest glimpse ever shot of the creative process and the relationship between John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The project is distributed by Disney, and will be released on the Disney + platform in the form of a docu-series.
The last trailer of the film gives pride of place to the creations of the legendary group. This trailer opens with the superb music Don’t Let me Down. The film seems to propose totally unique shots of the group in the middle of the creative process. It must be said that these images were filmed while the quartet is trying to write 14 new songs. They were in preparation for their first live concert after more than two years of absence. The Beatles: Get Back will be released over three days: November 25, 26 and 27, 2021, exclusively on Disney +.
