Director Peter Jackson has been working on The Beatles movie with the same restoration team which produced They Shall Not Grow Old.

Over 50 years on, Paul McCartney’s original dream for the ‘Get Back’ album and film project might just be in the process of being realised by Peter Jackson in a New Zealand editing suite.

The director has revealed a first montage from the documentary he began working on in 2018, ahead of a delayed cinematic release now planned for the late summer of next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As discussed by Jackson back in January 2019, the footage portrays a familiar, comfortable group seemingly settled in their back-to-basics approach – as McCartney had hoped – rather than on the brink of collapse as remembered from the one seen in Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s original.

“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,” Jackson has said. “We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.”
