I'd prefer it stick to a roughly chronological order myself, maybe a short bit of them going onto the roof and starting to warm-up, possibly a caption or voiceover, "29 days earlier...", then cutting back to Twickenham on the 2nd and taking it from there.

  

I'd ordinarily prefer strict chronology, but placing all the unplugged ballads after the rocking rooftop show feels anticlimactic. I see it told this way:

Part One

1. Open cold with the acoustic "Two of Us"; followed by superimposed caption reading something like "The Beatles: Apple offices studio, 31 January, 1969".

2. Caption then changes to "The Beatles, 29 Days earlier: Twickenham soundstage, 2 January 1969" over footage of Mal setting up equipment.

Then the Twickenham period is covered. Regular onscreen captions indicate the changing dates and situations, and soon we get one explaining the change of location: 

Part Two

1. Open on performance of "Long and Winding Road", caption once again indicating "Apple offices, 31 January".

2. New caption: "13(?) Days earlier" and we cover the first working day at Apple. Then later, Billy's arrival, Heather and Linda visiting, etc., until

Part Three

Caption reads "Apple Offices rooftop, 30 January", and we get the concert. And then, to close the film, we get the performance of "Let it Be". Superimposed caption reads "31 January: The Beatles' final performance for a motion picture camera."

Speaking on SiriusXM in the past few days, Ringo has commented on the upcoming Jackson version:

I'm looking with Peter Jackson at all the footage that was never used. Prior to us doing that [the rooftop performance], we're all hanging out, and it's a lot of fun, lot of humour, and not like the one that came out.

 

At 1 time, I owned the double DVD set (Winter of Discontent).  Although the 2nd DVD was crappy quality, there was sooooooo much more stuff that should have been put on the movie than the George/Paul incidents.

 

I'm shocked that The Beatles didn't have more say in it before the original release.

The film first ran for something like 2 hours and 30 minutes before it was cut down to what was the final release and they had a say. I doubt they were too interested wanting to get rid so they could move on and forget the entire experience. There are photos of them at a rough cut screening.

Article giving details of the film on MSN today. Looks interesting if it gives a different perspective from hours of unused footage: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/ente.....spartandhp

So we've got a cinema release (US and Canada at the moment) on 4 September 2020.

For those wondering about DVD/Blu-ray, nothing's been announced, but for comparison's sake Eight Days A Week : The Touring Years (the Ron Howard doc) came out in cinemas on 15 September 2016, and on disc on November 18, 2016. I'd imagine they'll do a similarly quick turnaround with this one, particularly with Christmas looming and because they'll doubtlessly want to get the reissue of the Let It Be film done in the 50th anniversary year. Let's see.

You'd think by now they would release it as a Blu ray & streaming the same time it's being released  to theatre.  Not everybody likes to go to Theatres and actually wait for the home release.  Times have changed, especially now with coronavirus.

Just a thought!

Do we think will there be any of the scenes, which were shown in the original film, eg George's 'discussion' with Paul, George helping Ringo compose 'Octopus's Garden ' or Linda's daughter crashing the cymbal 'scaring' Ringo, also be be shown in the new film, or apart from some of the performances, will totally new scenes be included?

I’d prefer a brand new film with new scenes given the amount of content at Jackson’s disposal.

I noticed this is being delayed until August of next year, is this solely because of the pandemic or is there other reasons behind it because it seems weird that they wouldn't release the film on it's 50th anniversary, especially considering that they can release the film on sites like Netflix.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Just the pandemic, @Dark Overlord. They seem to be holding out for a cinema release and are hoping cinemas are fully open by next August. Disney have pushed all their big titles back into next year.

Let's just pray they release the full rooftop concert this time, and maybe more leading up to it!  This would be the highlight of the whole movie!

Rolling Stone cover article on the demise of the Beatles which includes Peter Jackson discussing Get Back obviously scheduled to be part of the build-up to the original September release date we were given.

Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back  is not a remake of Let It Be — it will be a whole new film, showing that Paul and Ringo weren't kidding when they said Let It Be  showed only the negative side of the story.

Jackson's Get Back footage promises to be full of warmth and camaraderie: John and Paul with acoustic guitars, busking "Two of Us," when John breaks into "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da " to crack up his mate. Paul leading an early romp on "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window ," with John shouting back at each line. ("Get a job, gob!") The band having a bash at their 1965 oldie "Help !," halfway treating it as a joke, but inevitably tapping into the song's adult despair. You see them write songs that ended up on Abbey Road  or solo albums — like when John and Paul whip up the Imagine classic "Gimme Some Truth ." The mischief on their faces, the eye contact, the collective electricity in the playing — there's a lot more of the Beatles team spirit than you'd guess from the reputation.

It'll be interesting to see if there are more articles in the next few weeks that offer further glimpses of Jackson's film because they were originally scheduled to be part of the publicity campaign around a September release date.
