We've been given our first peek of the upcoming Peter Jackson directed Beatles docuseries with a new trailer featuring previously unseen footage and audio of the iconic band. The Beatles: Get Back will premiere on Disney+, November 25th. 

The three-part series promises an intimate "fly-on-the-wall” experience with never-before-seen, restored footage of the band’s pivotal January 1969 recording sessions, as they carve out 14 new songs for their first live concert in over two years.

Fab Four’s creative process is meticulously documented with over 60 hours of original footage and more than 150 hours of unheard audio that has been locked away in fault for more than 50 years – until now! Additionally, for the first time ever, The Beatles’ famous final rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row can be viewed in its entirety. 

Watch the trailer below.

An official description reads: “Made entirely from never-before-seen, restored footage, it provides the most intimate and honest glimpse into the creative process and relationship between John, Paul, George, and Ringo ever filmed.”

Earlier this year, legendary director Peter Jackson revealed that he expected Beatles fans to be surprised by the series, saying, “I think people will be surprised by the series for two reasons. One, it’ll be far more intimate than they imagined it to be, because everyone is used to seeing music documentaries being a bit kind of MTV-ish, sort of together in a poppy kind of way and it’s just the music, music, music, you know?”

“The music isn’t at the forefront of this film: weirdly, it’s what goes on behind the music at the forefront,” Jackson said. “I mean, even in the rooftop concert, we have the concept that we’re inter-cutting all the time to the street and to the policeman and everything else.”

“So we’re not just sitting there on the concert for 45 minutes, we’re showing a whole narrative of what’s going on elsewhere during that period. And that’s really true of the whole series – it’s not a sequence of MTV video clips of them doing songs. There’s probably more conversations with The Beatles in the films than there is actual singing.”

The episodes will premiere on Disney+ on November 25, 26 and 27.
