The Beatles Get Back disney Facts

“The Beatles: Get Back” is a documentary series directed by Peter Jackson, released by Disney on the Disney+ streaming platform. This three-part documentary showcases the making of The Beatles’ 1970 album “Let It Be,” which was originally intended to be a return to live performance for the band. The series is crafted from over 60 hours of unseen footage shot in January 1969 and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, all of which had been stored in a vault for over half a century.

The documentary provides an intimate and honest look at the creative processes and interpersonal dynamics of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr during a pivotal moment in their career. It captures the challenges and tensions they faced, as well as moments of humor, camaraderie, and musical genius as they attempted to write and rehearse 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years.

“The Beatles: Get Back” also includes the band’s unforgettable rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, which turned out to be their last live performance together. Peter Jackson’s direction and the use of restoration technology give viewers a vivid and immersive view of these iconic moments in music history.
