The Beatles: Get Back is a three-part docuseries centred around the rock band, The Beatles. It focuses on the time during the recording of their last album, Let It Be. The documentary’s theme will be bright and lighthearted. Instead of focusing on the band’s disagreements and feuds, it will highlight their last moments as an iconic band before they went their own separate ways.
The docuseries is made entirely from never seen before and restored footage. It features some of the most personal and honest moments shared by John, Paul, George and Ringo, during the lifespan of the band.

The docuseries is compiled from nearly 60 hours of unseen footage shot over 21 days, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and from more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been locked in a vault for over half a century. Walt Disney Studios released the first official trailer of the documentary-series on YouTube yesterday.
In the span of just four minutes, this trailer made me go through a whirlpool of emotions. The documentary covers the relationship of the band members with each other, and with their families. It shows us the band’s creative process of making music, and the pressure to perform live after almost three years. It tells us about the increasing distance and disagreements between them.
I’ve been a huge fan of The Beatles since a long time, and watching new footage of the four of them messing around in the studio was definitely the highlight of my day.
