"Get back to where you once belonged." Disney has unveiled a special "sneak peek" teaser trailer preview for the new documentary about The Beatles called The Beatles: Get Back, due out in theaters in August 2021. This is New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson's latest documentary (following They Shall Not Grow Old) that he has been working on for years, restoring hours & hours of old footage. It was delayed from release this year until August of next year thanks to the pandemic. "From one Beatles fan to another: Step inside Peter Jackson's edit bay to get an exclusive look at never-before-seen footage from his documentary feature, The Beatles: Get Back." The doc film features in-studio footage that was shot in early 1969 for the 1970 feature film Let It Be. Jackson said, "We wanted to give the fans of The Beatles all over the world a holiday treat, so we put together this five-minute sneak peek… We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time." This looks like sooooo much vintage fun. Fire it up!!

The Beatles: Get Back is directed by acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson, director of the WWI documentary film They Shall Not Grow Old previously, as well as both the Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit trilogies, Dead Alive, Heavenly Creatures, The Frighteners, King Kong, and The Lovely Bones. Presented by The Walt Disney Studios in association with Apple Corps Ltd. and WingNut Films Productions Ltd.
