Peter Jackson has finally dropped a sneak peek of the highly anticipated Beatles documentary “Get Back” which hits the theaters on August 27, 2021. Paul McCartney shared an almost six-minute footage from the film on Twitter. It starts off with Jackson introducing the clip and explaining that “The Beatles: Get Back” would’ve been finished now but because of the coronavirus pandemic, they’re about halfway done with the editing.

He added that it’s not a trailer but a “montage of moments” from the 56 hours of never-before-seen videos. He aims to show fans the energy and vibe of the doc, and to give viewers “a sense of the spirit of the film that we’re making.”
This glimpse into the sessions features footage recorded in early 1969 including their legendary rooftop concert. 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 at our upcoming theatrical film ‘The Beatles: Get Back.’ We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.”
“The Beatles: Get Back” is notably lighter, brighter, and sunnier than the gloomy and depressing mood of the “Let It Be” film.
Ringo Starr recalled in a statement, “There were hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the version that came out. There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. I think this version will be a lot more peace and loving, like we really were.”
