The Disney + streaming service has released an official nearly 4-minute trailer for the new docu series, The Beatles: Come Back, today (October 13). Check it out below.
As the trailer shows, in 1969 a film crew had unprecedented access to the group. Now the footage is being broadcast, cut and shot by Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson. He got hold of the series from 57 hours of unreleased material.
“In many ways, the remarkable images of Michael Lindsay-Hogg captured several storylines. The story of friends and individuals. This is the story of human frailties and a divine partnership, ”Jackson said in a statement. “It’s a detailed account of the creative process, with the making of iconic songs under pressure, in the social climate of early 1969. But it’s not nostalgia – it’s raw, honest and human. In six hours, you’ll get to know The Beatles with an intimacy you never thought possible.
He continued, “I am very grateful to The Beatles, Apple Corps and Disney for allowing me to present this story exactly as it should be told. I have been immersed in this project for almost three years and am very happy that audiences all over the world can finally see it.
The series is released over three days, November 25, 26 and 27, exclusively on Disney +.
