Peter Jackson Is Working On Another Beatles Project 'That's Not Really A Documentary'
By DEBOPRIYAA DUTTA
After 2021’s "The Beatles: Get Back," Peter Jackson is back with another Beatles project that he reveals in an interview is “something very, very different than Get Back.” He could only give the detail that “it's not really a documentary,” but if it is anything like the docuseries, the preparation will be intensive.
For "Get Back," Jackson went through 60 hours of previously unseen footage of The Beatles preparing for their last studio album, 1970’s “Let it Be,” and divided it into three two-hour episodes. If any restoration work will need to be done for the new project, it will be a frame-by-frame process to sharpen the footage to current viewing standards.
In an interview, Jackson spoke about the legacy of the band, which inspired him to work on "Get Back" in the first place: "Now, [The Beatles] are our grandparents or great-grandparents. But [...] you never once feel this footage [in “Get Back”] is 52 years old. I've always thought their music transcends generations, but this will make them seem young again."
