The Peter Jackson film, @KyleKartan, currently has a release date of 27 August 2021, so yeah, looks like the Let It Be 50th has been shoved to August next year.

There’s now an official website for the project, which is all about the book at the moment.

(Don’t pre-order using the link there, be a friend to Joe and use the Amazon link.)

The Guardian and Rolling Stone articles on the official confirmation of the book.

Seriously though, I’m very glad I ordered this on day one back in January. $35 as opposed to the $60 cover price (although I dread to think what the US-UK exchange rate will be like next August).

How many of those images in the trailer were in the original 1st edition box set book back in 1970 from people lucky enough to own a copy? Or do these look like they are all entirely new screen grabs from different camera angles? I was lucky enough to see a well dog-eared copy of the original in the late 70’s just loaned to me overnight, I’ve never seen it since but can remember being impressed at the time.

@Old Soak

A pdf copy of the ‘Get Back ‘ book is online on the ‘Get Back‘ section of The Beatle Source.

 

Anyone who is interested in such material may want to head there before Apple start promoting in 2021.

It should be called Let It Be 51st & 1/3 at that point.

I picked up the Get Back book on the way to work. 20 dollars more than Amazon but I have it 5 days early and it’s not damaged.

On first flip-through it seems tasteful and well presented. Big but not unwieldy. Nice photos and a chronological account with dialogue between The Beatles and others.

Is there anything worthwhile that wasn’t in the Get Back book that came with the original Let It Be release?

I’m not an expert on which photos are new, but it appears there are quite a few new ones to me.

It’s definitely not mostly text. Lots of large pictures.

I would try to have a look. It’s not mostly photos either, kind of a mix. Hard to say the ratio. A bit text heavy at first and then more on the photo side. But definitely both throughout. Photos range in size from tiny to full page. One small section toward the end is just pages of large photos.
