You've probably already seen the stunning trailer for the new Beatles documentary Get Back, and now it's time for its official release.

Peter Jackson's series is very profound: the three episodes each last two to three hours and offer almost eight hours of material, incredibly reduced from over 55 hours of film material.

The footage was lovingly restored from the band's 1969 recording sessions for their final studio album, Let It Be. The Doc then culminates in their famous final public appearance on the roof of Apple Corps headquarters in London, where the entire concert will be screened.

Instead of a comprehensive retrospective of the Beatles' entire careers, Jackson's film instead focuses on a crucial late moment in the band's time together. And most importantly, Get Back was created with the blessings of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison.

It sounds like it's going to be a groundbreaking musical documentary. Paul McCartney recently announced that Get Back changed his own perception of the band's breakup. Lennon's son Julian Lennon said that watching it was a "life changing" experience for him and renewed his love for his father. "Get Back could change the way you think about the fall of the Beatles," read the review by The Ringer.

Now it's almost time for fans to form their own opinion. The Beatles: Get Back will debut on Disney + on Thursday, November 25th, with episodes 2 and 3 coming out on Friday, November 26th and Saturday, November 27th, respectively. If you don't already have an account and want to view Jackson's Document, you can sign up for Disney + here.
