Hello, Beatles fans of the world: The Beatles are coming to IMAX.
The Beatles had their last performance on January 30, 1969. Over 50 years later, audiences will be able to enjoy their favorite band on the big screen. A special theatrical release of the Beatles’ 1969 performance is scheduled for Sunday, January 30, 2022. The release includes never-before-seen bonus scenes on Disney Plus. Peter Jackson, the director of the famous Lord of The Rings trilogy, is recapturing the best of the Beatles. ‘Let it Be’ and ‘Abbey Road’ are two of the hottest albums that original fans grew up with and now will be able to relive the tunes of one of the greatest rock and roll bands in history with their children and grandchildren.
Forbes interviewed director Robert Rodriguez to discuss Peter Jackson and his approach to producing Get Back: “I was shocked when he offered two to three hours.”
Jackson will reveal what really happened when the Beatles were putting together their new album Get Back in the Apple Savile Row studio. Jackson’s free reign of the project allowed him to be honest about the band’s history. Disney promoted the film to only be a two-hour special, but Jackson got Disney to agree to share the eight-hour footage.
