The Beatles; "Get Back" Film; Update!

The new Beatles documentary Get Back, will apparently no longer be shown in theaters in August, but will instead air over three nights in November on Disney-Plus.

It will be shown as three separate two-hour episodes at Thanksgiving -- November 25th, the 26th and 27th.

The film is compiled from over 60 hours of unseen footage shot in January 1969 by documentarian Michael Lindsay-Hogg during the Let It Be sessions, and more than 150 hours of unheard audio.

Director Peter Jackson, of Lord of the Rings fame, says, "In many respects, Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s remarkable footage captured multiple storylines. 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."

Get Back will also include the band's last live performance on the roof of their Apple headquarters on London’s Savile Row.

The film's book, The Beatles: Get Back, will be published on October 12th.
