'The Beatles: Get Back' gives intimate look at iconic band in new trailer
The Beatles write and record new songs under a tight deadline in the new trailer for upcoming Disney+ documentary series, The Beatles: Get Back.
Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr have their friendship put to the test as they come together for their final two albums Abbey Road and Let It Be in the clip released on Wednesday.
The iconic band discusses the new music, lyrics, dealing with Harrison briefly quitting and getting ready for their last live performance as a group on the rooftop of London's Savile Row.
Lennon's wife Yoko Ono also makes an appearance and was around the band during their recording sessions.
The Beatles: Get Back, from director Peter Jackson, will consist of three, two-hour long episodes that are coming to Disney+ on Nov. 25, Nov. 26 and Nov. 27.
The series was compiled using over 60 hours of unseen footage that was shot over 21 days in 1969. The footage comes from the same video shot for the original Let It Be film from 1970, which was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg.
The Beatles: Get Back has the support of McCartney, Starr, Ono and Olivia Harrison.
Starr, in March, told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that he disliked the 1970 Let It Be film and said Get Back will show the band getting along in their final days.

Adele to release '30' album in November
Adele will return with a new album in November.
The 33-year-old singer will release her fourth studio album, 30, on Nov. 19.
Adele shared the news and new details about the album in a post Wednesday on Instagram, calling the project her "ride or die."
"I was certainly nowhere near where I'd hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually," the star wrote. "I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly -- willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!"
"I've learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I've shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I've finally found my feeling again," she said. "I'd go as far as to say that I've never felt more peaceful in my life."
Adele confirmed her split from her husband, Simon Konecki, in April 2019 after two years of marriage. The pair have an 8-year-old son together, Angelo.
In her post Wednesday, Adele said the album was her "ride or die" throughout "the most turbulent" period of her life.
"When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up ... The friend who'd stay up all night and just hold my hand while I'd sob relentlessly not knowing why. The get up and go friend who would pick me up and take me somewhere I said I didn't want to go but just wanted to get me out of the house for some vitamin D," the singer wrote.
"And then that friend who no matter what, checked in on me even though I'd stopped checking in with them because I'd become so consumed by own grief," she said. "I've painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it."
Adele will release a first single from the album, "Easy on Me," on Oct. 15.
Adele's previous albums were titled 19, 21 and 25 after significant years of her life. Her most recent album, 25, was released in November 2015.
Jamie Lee Curtis honors late mom with 'Psycho' look at premiere
Jamie Lee Curtis honored her late mom, actress Janet Leigh, with a Psycho-inspired look at the premiere of her new film.
Curtis, 62, channeled Leigh's Psycho character, Marion Crane, for the Los Angeles premiere of Halloween Kills on Tuesday.
Curtis wore a short blonde wig, light blue belted dress, and accessorized by carrying a white shower curtain splattered with fake blood.
"Honoring my mother in ALL her gory... I meant glory! PREMIERE PARTY TIME! @halloweenmovie @seanjameshair @gracegraceahn @egunshor," Curtis captioned a photo of her look on Instagram.
Curtis told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere that she chose a blue dress after seeing Scarlett Johansson's portrayal of Leigh in the film Hitchcock.
"I am honoring my beautiful late mama, Janet Leigh, but... it's a little more meta than that," Curtis said. "I am actually going as Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh in the movie Hitchcock. So it's meta because we never knew what color Janet Leigh's dress was because it was a black-and-white movie."
"But now because of the Hitchcock movie, we know it was pale blue," she added. "I was worried you would see this and just think I looked like a '50s housewife. So I thought, you know, maybe I need a little bloody shower curtain."
Curtis is the daughter of Leigh, who died at age 77 in 2004, and actor Tony Curtis.
In Halloween Kills, Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their roles as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. The film is the 12th installment in the Halloween franchise and co-stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton and Anthony Michael Hall.
Halloween Kills opens in theaters Friday and will start streaming on Peacock the same day.
