The highly anticipated three-part documentary The Beatles: Come Back from the director of Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson debuts today (11/25) on Disney +, with parts two and three on Friday (11/26) and Saturday (11/27), respectively. As Peter Jackson said to United States today, it aimed to give a more positive turn to the So be it sessions, which were documented as a “miserable time” for the group in the original So be it movie. When Jackson looked through the footage from these sessions, he saw something much more positive.
âIt’s really happy. It’s not what you think,â Jackson told Paul McCartney. âEvery negative twist you can imagine has been made by different (biographers) over the years, and to be honest, by the Beatles themselves. something completely different. “
Meanwhile, the Beatles’ old friend, rival, influence and fellow pop innovator Brian wilson is the subject of the documentary that has just been released Brian Wilson: long road promised, which is available to watch on YouTube, Apple TV, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Video for $ 6.99.
