Disney+ Releases Trailer for The Beatles ‘Let It Be’

The Beatles Let It Be

One week before The Beatles documentary “Let It Be” debuts on Disney+, the streamer has released the first trailer.

The Details

The documentary movie was released 54 years ago, in 1970, as The Beatles were officially breaking up, and it was not initially received well by fans because of the turmoil.

But, following the release of Peter Jackson’s multiple Emmy Award®-winning docuseries, “The Beatles: Get Back,” released on Disney+ in 2021, Apple Corps asked Jackson’s Park Road Post Production to dive into a meticulous restoration of the film from the original 16mm negative, which included lovingly remastering the sound using the same MAL de-mix technology that was applied to the “Get Back” docuseries.

“Let It Be,” directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, stars John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, with a special appearance by Billy Preston. The film was produced by Neil Aspinall with The Beatles acting as executive producers. The director of photography was Anthony B Richmond.
