New Beatles Film by Peter Jackson Speculated for October Release

Friday, January 03, 2020

It’s been nearly a year since the announcement of the still-untitled Beatles film being helmed by Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson, but some release details may have leaked.

Beatles fan blog The Daily Beatle found a listing on Amazon for a book titled Get Back: The Beatles, and it’s slated for release on October 15, 2020. The site also reports the book will act as companion material with Jackson’s film, which will be draw from 55 hours of never-released footage of The Beatles in the studio, shot between January 2-31, 1969. This footage came from the original filming of Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary Let It Be, which ended with the famous rooftop concert.

Jackson said in a statement when the film was originally announced, “The 55 hours of never-before-seen footage and 140 hours of audio made available to us, ensures this movie will be the ultimate ‘fly on the wall’ experience that Beatles fans have long dreamt about – it’s like a time machine transports us back to 1969, and we get to sit in the studio watching these four friends make great music together.”
