    1 of 3 2 of 3

      Attention all Beatles fans: The Beatles: Get Back, a docuseries directed by Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings guy Peter Jackson, airs on the Disney+ streaming service tomorrow through Saturday (November 25 to 27).

      The series is compiled from nearly 60 hours of unseen footage, shot over 21 days during 1969 recording sessions for the album Let It Be, and from more than 150 hours of previously unheard audio. 

      "The docuseries showcases the Beatles’ creative process as they attempt to write 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years," reads the promotional info from Disney+. "Faced with a nearly impossible deadline, the strong bonds of friendship shared by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are put to the test.

      "What emerges is an unbelievably intimate portrait of the Beatles, showing how, with their backs against the wall, they could still rely on their friendship, good humor, and creative genius. While plans derail and relationships are put to the test, some of the world’s most iconic songs are composed and performed."

      The docuseries features previously unseen footage of the Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, as well as other classic tunes featured on Abbey Road and Let It Be, the band's last two albums.

      Attention all non-Beatles fans: get a life.
