The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ Documentary is Getting a Re-Release

Showing exclusively on Disney+ on May 8, 2024

The Beatles’ original 1970 documentary Let It Be, directed by Michael Lindsay – Hogg is getting a re-release, after decades of absence. It will start showing exclusively on Disney+ starting May 8, 2024.

The documentary has been restored by Peter Jackson’s Park Road Post Production using the original 16mm negative and remastering the sound using the same MAL de-mix technology that was applied to Jackson’s Get Back series.

Michael Lindsay-Hogg says, “Let It Be was ready to go in October/November 1969, but it didn’t come out until April 1970. One month before its release, The Beatles officially broke up. And so the people went to see Let It Be with sadness in their hearts, thinking, ‘I’ll never see The Beatles together again. I will never have that joy again,’ and it very much darkened the perception of the film. But, in fact, how often do you get to see artists of this stature working together to make what they hear in their heads into songs? And then you get to the roof and you see their excitement, camaraderie, and sheer joy in playing together again as a group and know, as we do now, that it was the final time, and we view it with a full understanding of who they were and still are and a little poignancy. I was knocked out by what Peter was able to do with Get Back, using all the footage I’d shot 50 years previously.”
