Sir Paul McCartney was joined by friends and family, including Mary McCartney, Dhani Harrison, Zak, Lee and Jay Starkey at London’s Cineworld Leicester Square this week, for an exclusive 100 minute preview of Peter Jackson’s new docuseries The Beatles: Get Back

The series will land exclusively on Disney+ November 25, 25 and 27. Ironically, it was originally intended for theatrical release, before evolving into a streaming event.

The big screen preview attracted numerous music stars, including Noel Gallagher, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Guy Garvey, James Bay, Gary Kemp, Neil Tennant, Jamie Cook and Mick Hucknall.

Other VIP guests at the event included Martin Freeman, Stephen Merchant, Terry Gilliam, Sanjeev Bhaskar, director Paul Greengrass and physicist Brian Cox.  

The Beatles: Get Back was originally intended for theatrical release, before evolving into a streaming event…

The Beatles: Get Back has been made from never-before-seen, restored footage, using technologies developed by Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital visual effects company.  

The original material was shot in January 1969 by Michael Lindsay-Hogg on 16 millimetre film. Jackson and his team have compiled the series from over 60 hours of video and more than 150 hours of unheard audio.

In addition to throwing a candid spotlight on the writing and rehearsing of what was to become Let It Be, the series features The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the iconic rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, shown for the first time in its entirety.
