Move over holiday classics; two new music documentaries will keep you feeling cozy and nostalgic in front of the TV this holiday weekend. The much-anticipated three-part documentary The Beatles: Get Back from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson debuts today (11/25) on Disney+, with the second and third parts coming Friday (11/26) and Saturday (11/27), respectively. As Peter Jackson said to USA Today, he aimed to put a more positive spin on the Let It Be sessions, which were documented as a "miserable time" for the band in the original Let It Be film. When Jackson went through the footage of those sessions, he saw something much more positive.
"It’s really happy. It’s not what you think," Jackson says he said to Paul McCartney. "Every negative spin you could ever imagine has been put on this by different (biographers) over the years, and to be truthful, by The Beatles themselves. That’s not what I saw, I saw something completely different."
