Three-Part, Six-Hour, Peter Jackson-Directed Beatles Documentary to Air on Disney+ in November

The Beatles: Get Back – a six-hour, three-part documentary directed by Peter Jackson – will air on Disney+ this November.

Compiled from over 60 hours of footage shot in 1969 by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and over 150 hours of audio, the film captures the creative genesis of the Fab Four's final album, 1970's Let It Be

Notably, the film will also present the band's legendary January 30, 1969 "rooftop concert" in its entirety for the first time ever.

You can watch a preview of the film – which was made in cooperation with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison – above.

“In many respects, Michael Lindsay-Hogg's remarkable footage captured multiple storylines,” Jackson said in a statement. “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.

“I'm very grateful to The Beatles, Apple Corps, and Disney for allowing me to present this story in exactly the way it should be told," he continued. "I've been immersed in this project for nearly three years, and I'm very excited that audiences around the world will finally be able to see it.”

The Beatles: Get Back will air on Disney+ in three two-hour segments on November 25, 26, and 27. Ahead of the documentary's release, a hardcover book of the same name – featuring transcriptions of the band's recorded conversations and hundreds of never-before-published photos from the sessions – will arrive via Apple Corps Ltd./Callaway Arts & Entertainment on October 12.
