Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson has shared the first look at his new documentary on the making of the Beatles’ 1970 album 'Let It Be'.
The five-minute preview of The Beatles: Get Back comes as a thank you for fans’ patience, as the film was originally scheduled for release this year but delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time,” Jackson said in a statement.
The video, below, he stresses, is not a trailer, but a montage of scenes so far collected for the film, set to a rehearsal recording of the film's title track.
The film - now due for release on August 27 2021 - comes with a new book of the same name, with an introduction by Hanif Kureishi.
