The long wait is finally over for Peter Jackson‘s The Beatles – Get Back documentary. The three-part documentary will roll out over three days, November 25th, 26th, and 27th, 2021, exclusively on Disney+. All told, the complete running time for all three parts comes out to about eight hours of never-before-seen footage of “The Fab Four” at work.

The January 1969 footage features the band in the midst of rehearsing and recording Let It Be, and spotlights the band at Twickenham Film Studio, their Apple basement studios, and eventually the Apple Rooftop where they gave their final performance on January 30th, 1969.

The film has been compiled from over 55 hours of unseen footage, filmed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and 140 hours of mostly unheard audio recordings from the Let It Be album sessions.
