Peter Jackson’s documentary ‘The Beatles: Get Back’ is coming to Australian cinemas

Featuring never-before-seen footage and audio.

The Walt Disney Studios will bring Peter Jackson’s (Lord of The Rings) acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Get Back to Australian cinemas, having acquired the worldwide distribution rights.

Compiled from over 55 hours of unseen video and 140 hours of mostly unheard audio recordings, The Beatles: Get Back features never-before-seen footage from the band’s Let It Be recording sessions as well as their entire iconic rooftop concert.

Using archival footage by Michael Lindsay Hogg, shot for his own 1970 documentary Let It Be, the film offers a rare glimpse of The Beatles at work in the studio.

“I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about The Beatles recording together,” said Paul McCartney. “The friendship and love between us comes over and reminds me of what a crazily beautiful time we had.”

The Beatles: Get Back comes to Australian cinemas in late 2020.
