Peter Jackson has offered a sneak peek into his upcoming Beatles documentary via a video shot from his cutting room in New Zealand, where the director said he is about halfway through piecing together a movie from 56 hours of never-before-seen footage.
The footage is a montage of moments pulled from the material they’re working with, rather than being a trailer or clip. “Hopefully it’ll put a smile on your face in these rather bleak times,” said Jackson.
The Beatles: Get Back was supposed to be out this year but has been pushed back by the pandemic. The movie is now dated for August 27, 2021 by Disney.
