An as-yet-untitled, official Led Zeppelin documentary is in post-production.

Directed by Bernard MacMahon, (who directed the 2017 documentary American Epic, about the first recordings of rural music in the U.S) the film traces the band's story from its Sixties origins to 1970, when their second album knocked The Beatles off the top of the charts. 

The film features brand new interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, as well as rare archival interviews with the late John Bonham. The film will not include any outside voices, and will feature never-before-seen archive film and photographs and state-of-the-art audio transfers of the band’s music.

It is the first time the members of the band have ever participated in a documentary about their story. 

"When I saw everything Bernard had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is American Epic, I knew he would be qualified to tell our story,” Page said in a statement.

“Seeing Will Shade, and so many other important early American musicians, brought to life on the big screen in American Epic inspired me to contribute to a very interesting and exciting story,” Plant added.

“The time was right for us to tell our own story for the first time in our own words, and I think that this film will really bring that story to life,” added Jones.

There's no release date as of yet for the documentary, but we'll be sure to keep you posted as more details become available.
