Just in time for your Thanksgiving festivities, Disney+ is serving up one more thing to be thankful for: Get Back, a new three-part documentary about the making of The Beatles’ Let It Be, is hitting the streaming platform on November 25th. Following the unveiling of its official trailer last month, Disney+ has shared another preview of Get Back today with an exclusive first clip in honor of Disney+ Day.
At just under 90 seconds, the clip spotlights the Fab Four — shaggy haircuts and all — running through “I’ve Got a Feeling,” a Lennon/McCartney-penned highlight from Let It Be. Largely recorded prior to Abbey Road, the album marked some of the last music The Beatles ever made — though it didn’t get released until after the band’s breakup.
With that context, you can tell tensions in the studio are starting to rise: “Maybe we should learn a few songs first,” George Harrison offers passively at Paul McCartney’s suggestion to add more guitars to the song. Nevertheless, they sound fantastic in the stripped-down studio setting, evoking the same sense of raw talent exuded by their iconic 1969 performance on the Apple Corps rooftop.
Originally conceptualized as a standalone film, it was announced in June that director Peter Jackson had expanded the doc into a three-part series that’ll air over three nights. Jackson compiled the film from 55 hours of never-released footage and 140 hours of audio taken from the recording sessions, which has all been restored. Both visually and sonically, Get Back is shaping up to be a stunner for Beatles fans. Check out the “I’ve Got a Feeling” clip below.
The Beatles also recently celebrated Let It Be with a massive 41-track reissue of the record, which you can buy for a pretty penny here. And now that the band has officially joined TikTok, we’ll just have to sit back and see if McCartney celebrates the premiere of Get Back with a dance challenge; don’t expect him to sign his autograph for you, though.
