Something in the way she moves attracts me like … a cauliflower?
Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson offers Beatles fans unprecedent access during one of the Fab Four’s most infamous recording sessions in the trailer for “The Beatles: Get Back,” debuting on Disney+ in November.
Cut together from 59 hours of never-before-seen studio and concert footage shot by Michael Lindsay-Hogg over 21 days in January of 1969, the rock docuseries offers an intimate look at a vintage Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr as they hurriedly attempt to write and record 14 new songs while simultaneously preparing for the unforgettable rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row which proved to be the boys’ final live performance together.
The trailer teases plenty of funny, heartwarming, and even dramatic moments such as the band members digging deep to come up with the perfect lyric for “Something,” Lennon’s soon-to-be wife Yoko Ono sitting on an amp, and the group debating where and how to put on their first live concert in years.
“We should do the show in a place we’re not allowed to do it. Get forcibly ejected,” McCartney suggests (above).
“We have to do it sitting down,” Lennon counters, “Or we’ll get too excited.”
As listeners no doubt remember, McCartney has opened up about his time with the Beatles several times during his many visits to the Stern Show. During a conversation with Howard last year, he also revealed he was excited for fans to see the upcoming documentary. “I’ll tell you, Howard—it’s great,” he declared. Check out a clip from the interview (below).
