The New Beatles “Let It Be” Documentary Out In September! Never-Before-Seen Beatles Rehearsals!

The New Beatles Documentary Has A Release Date!

Yes, the new “Let It Be” Documentary is on the way! For this who don’t know, the original documentary about the making of the last Beatles album was released in 1970, and it showed a band in disarray…

But now, “Lord Of The Rings” Director Peter Jackson has been given access to the original documentary footage in the studio and is re-cutting the film!

This is such terrific news, as the music from the album has never been given the credit it deserves, because the stories had the band fighting the entire time they made the record – but that’s not true!

As reports:

Peter Jackson’s upcoming Beatles documentary, which includes a slew of unseen footage of the “Let It Be” rockers, is coming to theaters in September.

It will include 55 hours of in-studio footage that was shot in early 1969 for the 1970 feature film Let It Be.

Yes, we will see TONS of material never seen before!

Also included of course is the legendary “rooftop concert”, where the band performed some new songs – their last live performance ever.

Director Peter Jackson has been given complete access to all of the material, which he says shows the band having a great working relationship for most of the recording sessions:

“Working on this project has been a joyous discovery. I’ve been privileged to be a fly on the wall while the greatest band of all time works, plays and creates masterpieces.”

Paul McCartney said:

“I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about The Beatles recording together. The friendship and love between us comes over and reminds me of what a crazily beautiful time we had.”

Ringo Starr added:

“I’m really looking forward to this film. Peter is great and it was so cool looking at all this footage. There was 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.”

Of course, the original documentary is a sobering look at the four Artists unable to get along, but it doesn’t end with the live rooftop concert…here are a few of those musical performances:

I cant wait to see this new cut of “Let It Be”, just the latest look at the band’s incredible creative contribution to our lives:

Director Ron Howard took a look at the band’s iconic trip to the US in 1964, and you can find this incredible documentary now as well – see the trailer and more here:
