    So Disney is probably waiting for this Christmas season to release it

  2. Rich M says:

    Hopefully Disney have come to their senses and realised the is a market for an extended version with bonus content

    • Actimel says:

      Or Di$n€y just keep delaying it till 2069 so we can be happy about streaming only the full 56 hours of footage for only 25$ a month? The problem though is that most of us and even some younger fans today will not be alive by that year…

      Don’t hold your breath

    Let’s hope they realised they were about to release substandard product (as in merely an inferior-quality copy of the excellent series, alreday available, but locked into the Disney streaming service), and are now in the process of improving it? One can but hope …

    Fugh You Disney

  5. Juan says:

    Ha! Keeping the tradition of delaying this product. I love it

  6. James Peet says:

    Maybe D@$%#y have realised that this is the Beatles, and their normal policy of not issuing Director’s cuts don’t apply. I’m not hopefully of the Let It Be film being released on a BD/DVD. Is it me, but do the interested parties seem to be making it up as they go along?

    Fab 4 Free For All podcast posted: Just got word direct from a Disney spokesperson who said the following:

    “We did learn recently that the Blu-ray and DVD release will be delayed but we do not yet know the release date. So any new date is definitely a rumor. We will share the new release date once we have it, so please let your listeners know.”

  8. Jools says:

    The bootleg market will have cleaned up by then….. most of the audio been available for years.

    I’d like to look at this as a positive development from the Mouse House, but I’m not so sure. Time will tell. It just seems so badly bungled. So much material being overlooked. Director’s cut, physical copy of the rooftop performance and the original LIB movie. To steal from an old Kinks LP…Give The People What They Want.

    Peter Jackson is a fan! He is calling for the fans to support him!

    • Mike H says:

      Agreed completely that Peter Jackson is a fan!
      If the delay is due to what many of us have been clamoring for which is extra hours in a director’s cut and the full rooftop performance, then we will have Disney to thank. It will be worth the wait.
      Anyone know in what manner we can make our feelings known to Disney?

    • Rick says:

      If he’s such a fan then he never should’ve let Disney get their greedy hands on it in the 1st place.

      • Mike H says:

        It wasn’t his call as to who distributed the movie. He was contracted to edit it.

      • Blakey says:

        Nothing to do with Peter Jackson who distributes the film. Apple and the (two remaining) Beatles are to blame for this whole mess. They could have kept the project in house and had as many extras as they wanted on it. But now – because of their greed – they have to ask the permission of Disney if an extended version can be done. I mean, The Beatles having to get someone else’s permission to put bonus features on their own work?! I ask you? It’s quite laughable, but Apple only have themselves to blame…

        • Shad+Radna says:

          Apple aren’t in the film distribution business. It’s not greed that drives you to give someone a cut of the take of your movie for distributing it for you. And the estates of the two deceased Beatles have an equal say in these decisions.

        • Arno says:

          Do you have any proof that Apple made such a bad deal, that Disney are free to do whatever they want regarding all the audio and videomaterial and that Apple now has to ask to change the product? I’m sure that Olivia, Sean, Ringo and Paul all made a 100% watertight deal of what they wanted from Disney, otherwise proof me I’m wrong. Apple shopped around with the project and Disney made the best offer. We are not back to 1962 and bad deals for The Beatles/EMI and later th-shirts, buttons, pencils, photos, cups and cans and whatever. They have learned a lot! Please notice their sky high royalty on all kinds of products with their name, And now Amazon, E-Bay etc don’t sell cheap Beatlescopies of pillows, shoes and whatever made in China. Universal only release what Apple wants, and each Beatle family has to accept the project before it’s a go ahead. So no voting 1-3 or 2-2. Only 4 pro the project is a go. This is cyrstalclear from the Apple contract as found on Companies House in England and is public available. So I see no mess. It us the fans that don’t know what has been ordered and we had expected to get 20 blu-ray’s with the video and 200 cd cd’s with the audio in a superbox and 4 volues of pictures each 500 pages strong with the complete Collection of what were done in january 1969. Let’s see what happens and stop complaining. We will get what was planned. You don’t do 100.000 new boxes overnight because of wants from the fans.

    Looks like there was an issue with the sound which is why you got pushed back but eight more months?

    The original film has the complete versions of LET IT BE, THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD, and TWO OF US that the Beatles recorded the day after the rooftop concert. Why did Peter Jackson leave those performances out of his film? Makes no sense to me.

    • Juan says:

      I’d think because the whole idea of the project is the final show which was the rooftop. Whatever happened after it is filler, besides, it was mentioned by him from the beginning that there weren’t going to be any full songs.

    I have this DVD on pre-order from the Amazons, but given these delays (?) and without any “bonus” material, if I find a reputable source before an official, barebones release, I will go with it. Because everything else is only vapor.
