    Best new of 2109. Peter Jackson is a great man….

  3. Nicki says:

    Excellent news, and in hindsight, a new edit of the material is an obvious thing to do, so long as we really do get the original edit too

  4. Denise says:

    Very much looking forward to seeing the final product.

    At this point in my life at age 55, I will believe it when I see it. I have been fooled too many times.

    Well, I can add something more to the timeline. But you’ll have to trust my words, since I didn’t kept any proof of it:
    Late 80s, 90s and early 00s: broadcast a gazillion of times on southern Brazil local TV station “TV2 Guaíba”, usually on late at night sessions, subtitled in Brazilian Portuguese.

    The Beatles did want to star in their own version of Lord of The Rings:

    I would imagine the aim will be to have this out for the 50th anniversary of Let It Be (MAy 2020). This being said, I'd wager that it won't, and that we'll have to wait a bit longer…. If MPL have anything to do with it, we can expect it around 2065….

  15. Beatlemilio says:

    Maybe a new remixed edition of "Let It Be" or "Let It Be… Naked" for this release?
    If so, please, keep the original covers, not as it was with "Live At The Hollywood Bowl" in 2016

    Looking forward to this very much. Start saving for the deluxe version now

    Really liking the idea of incorporating previously unseen footage, although in the end it will be the the musical performances that will rule. Audiences won't want to see scene after scene of them sitting around and trying to come to grips with what the end result of this project will be.

  18. Crackin Thunder says:

    I am as interested in the dialogue they have with each other as much as their music. The complex dynamic of the relationship between them, the humor, the respect (and sometimes disrespect) between them for their musical ideas makes this footage an amazing historical study.
    Half of what made the original LIB depressing was the terrible grainy footage and the often lousy sound that came with it. I suspect we will be surprised how much the technological re-work of the original will make it more interesting and at least somewhat more enjoyable. In these days of reality TV,their disagreements and drama might seem a little more routine to us (hope they include a little of it in the re-work). For me, those tense discussions were part of the art of their communicating with each other and it told me about the relationship between them which reflected a combination of love, angst, and ego. I can't wait!

  19. Martin says:

    I wonder if they'll use the red Apple for the DVD discs?

    I do hope it won't be a sanitised job. The tension and the getting along should both be included. I also wonder if the period where George left will be addressed? The Jamming With Yoko footage (Paul playing into his amp and Ringo going mad on the drums)should be part of it. Would also be great if a band/Beatles version of 'All Things Must Pass' was seen and heard officially at long last.

    So, Abbey Rd box set this year, then the LIB films + boxset, then Lewisohn's Vol2. Fingers crossed anyway.

  22. Debjorgo says:

    Good point db. We should have a Deluxe Abbey Road before this comes out.

    I love the commentary. Fans have literally died waiting for this film.

    Very exciting news, and the LOTR references above are hilarious – you beat me to it – when I saw the news on Facebook, I commented that I hope he gets Howard Shore to do the music – nothing in response but the sound of crickets.
