"Jackson said, '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.'”
Jackson acts like the Beatles were getting along better than the original Let It Be film appeared to portray.
"'I was relieved to discover the reality is very different to the myth,' continues Jackson, 'After reviewing all the footage and audio that Michael Lindsay-Hogg shot 18 months before they broke up, it’s simply an amazing historical treasure-trove. Sure, there’s moments of drama - but none of the discord this project has long been associated with. Watching John, Paul, George, and Ringo work together, creating now-classic songs from scratch, is not only fascinating - it’s funny, uplifting and surprisingly intimate'."
The post did not give a release date, but it is being made with the cooperation of Paul, Ringo, and John and George's widows Yoko and Olivia.
I don't know of getting the full cooperation of those folks led to the emphasis on the Beatles's teamwork, or if showing them actually get along led to the cooperation of the Beatle people. Particularly Paul and Yoko.
But it should be very interesting. I'm looking forward to it.
I really hope they show the whole rooftop concert!
A rooftop concert would indeed be nice.
But you know they did "Get Back" three or four times. I have seen several different YouTubes of "Get Back" on the roof. All different performances.
I guess it depends on what camera they take the film from.
While 21 minutes of the concert made it into the final Let It Be film, the actual performance was twice as long. During the 42-minute set, the Beatles played “One After 909,” two complete versions each of “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Dig a Pony” and “I’ve Got a Feeling,” and three versions of “Get Back” — plus various incomplete takes, including a line from the Irish folk song “Danny Boy.”
