The Beatles’ Let It Be Now on Disney Plus

Following in the footsteps of their exclusive release of the epic 3-part documentary series The Beatles: Get Back in 2021, Disney Plus is now home to the project from which so much previously unused footage originated: Let It Be.

In late 2021, The Beatles: Get Back premiered on Disney Plus, treating fans to hours of previously unseen footage and audio recordings from the Fab Four. Peter Jackson had been tasked, with his Park Road Post Production team, to work with the footage. They restored it, using their MAL de-mixing software to separate audio tracks so that each member of the band and each instrument could be heard to its fullest.

Mr Jackson and his team have now completed their restoration work on the original product of the filming days and recording sessions we witnessed in Get Back. The first intent of the 1969 project was the vague and unrefined idea of a Beatles television special. The band had not performed live in public together for some time. In the end, it came to that famous rooftop performance above their Savile Row offices.

The result of all the filming was realised in 1970, when the idea of the TV special had long been abandoned, with the release in cinemas of the film Let It Be. This restoration project had the full support of the film’s director Michael Lindsay-Hogg.

The Beatles: Get Back showed us many hours of footage that was never used in Let It Be. The film Let It Be has not seen a release since its outing on VHS in the 1980s. Now it is available to see in full, newly restored by Peter Jackson’s Park Road Post Production, containing some footage that was not used in the Get Back docuseries.

The newly restored The Beatles’ Let It Be is now available on Disney Plus.
