The Beatles: Get Back documentary teased by Peter Jackson
The Beatles rocked all over the world during the 1960s, turning fans everywhere into Beatlesmaniacs. The fandom reached a critical mass to the point where the band did not even tour anymore, as they could barely hear themselves over the screaming. It all came to an end in 1970 when the band split up – but when is the latest documentary about the Fab Four out?
The Beatles: Get Back is out in cinemas on August 27, 2021, so there is quite a while to wait.
However, if cinemas are not yet up and running, the film is being released by Disney, meaning it could be released on Disney Plus as well, meaning fans can watch the movie at home.
This has not been confirmed, however recently a five minute clip of the boys in action was released on the platform, spelling a potential partnership for the release.
Speaking about this sneak peek, director Peter Jackson said: “We wanted to give the fans of The Beatles all over the world a holiday treat, so we put together this five-minute sneak peek at our upcoming theatrical film The Beatles: Get Back.

“We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.”
Peter specified the film is a ‘theatrical film,’ meaning it will be released in cinemas, so fans need not worry whether they will be able to see it.
What is The Beatles: Get Back about?
This film is unlike other documentaries, in which it shows The Beatles during intimate recording sessions in amongst their huge fame.
Much of the footage, shot in January 1969, is unseen, having been compiled from more than 60 hours of filming from Michael Lindsay Hogg, as well as 150 hours of audio which had not yet been heard.
The audio has been retouched and brought into the 21st century, which is something Peter has become known for in recent years.
While Peter Jackson is primarily a director of large-scale movies, such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, he has also worked more recently in restoration work alongside his big budget films.
One of these projects was They Shall Not Grow Old, a World War One drama which featured previously unseen footage, brought into the 21st century with colour and 3D effects.
The audio was in fact stories of soldiers narrated over the top of the images, which, in many cases, were not necessarily accurate or even matched up, while some of the soldiers’ speech was dubbed, to intertwine the stories with the images perfectly.
While not entirely accurate, the effect was spectacular, and Peter received huge plaudits for his incredible work.
The Guardian critic Peter Bradshaw said of the project: “To mark the centenary of the First World War’s end, Peter Jackson has created a visually staggering thought experiment; an immersive deep-dive into what it was like for ordinary British soldiers on the western front.
“This he has done using state-of-the-art digital technology to restore flickery old black-and-white archive footage of the servicemen’s life in training and in the trenches.
“He has colourised it, sharpened it, put it in 3D and, as well as using diaries and letters for narrative voiceover, he has used lip-readers to help dub in what the men are actually saying.
“The effect is electrifying.”
The effect for Get Back is likely similar, as the film features – for the first time in its entirety – The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, which was a rooftop concert at Savile Row in London.
