Get ready, Beatles fans! The iconic band's 1970 film, Let It Be, capturing the making of their legendary album of the same name, is set to stream again after 50-plus years.

Initially released amidst the backdrop of the band's breakup in the summers of 1970, the film has been meticulously restored and re-contextualised with insights from The Beatles' docuseries "Get Back," directed by Peter Jackson, which premiered on Disney+ in 2021.

With the go-ahead from the film’s director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Let It Be was restored by Jackson’s tea and is set for release in May 2024. 

While the film had limited availability since its release, it has now found a new home on Disney+, marking its official return to audiences worldwide after decades.

“I now think of it all as one epic story, finally completed after five decades,” Jackson said in a statement.

Featuring exclusive footage from the band's recording sessions and their historic rooftop performance in 1969, the film provides a rare glimpse into The Beatles' creative process and camaraderie.

The Beatles’ official Instagram account also teased the announcement.

“At last… there will be an answer,” the post hinted.
