Oh, hi. Nothing like new Beatles footage to bring me scrambling back to the blog. LOOK:
I’ve been waiting impatiently for any news of this documentary since its premiere was delayed earlier this year, so I nearly burst with excitement when I saw this update tweeted out this morning (it was literally the reason for getting out of bed: I had to go into another room to watch it without waking Alex up). August 2021 is so far away, but these few minutes of footage reassure me that it’s going to be 1000% worth. Thank heavens New Zealand has its act together and the crew can resume editing work.
If this indeed is an accurate picture of the film, then I am giddily looking forward to…
Coming up with a new drinking game, this time with tea.
More of George and Ringo’s frilly shirts.
Billy Preston! George Martin! Mal Evans!
Yoko and Linda just hanging out??
John antics (honestly, these two seconds are very relatable).
All the vintage recording equipment (and the boys dunking on Glyn Johns).
And just generally seeing a happier side of this chapter. <3
And just to tide us all over a bit longer, here’s some footage from the original film, in the video quality I remember.
So stoked to see the Beatles get the Peter Jackson treatment.
