The final cut covers 21 days in the studio with the Beatles as they rehearse for a forthcoming album, concert and film project, and climaxes with the full 42-minute rooftop concert. Jackson described the series as "a documentary about a documentary", as well as a "tougher" one than Let It Be, since it includes controversial events such as Harrison's brief resignation from the band, which the original film had not covered. With the exception of specific shots where no alternative exists, most of the material that had been featured in Let It Be was not reused in Get Back, and the series primarily used footage captured from alternative camera angles in the case of sequences shared between the two works. According to Jackson, this choice was made out of a desire to "not step on Let It Be's toes so that it is still a film that has a reason to exist, and our [series] will be a supplement to it".

The project was announced on 30 January 2019, the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles' rooftop concert. On 11 March 2020, The Walt Disney Studios announced they had acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Jackson's documentary, now titled The Beatles: Get Back. It was initially set to be theatrically released by Walt Disney Pictures on 4 September 2020 in the United States and Canada, with a global release to follow. Jackson said the feature film would have been around two-and-a-half hours long. On 12 June 2020, it was pushed back to 27 August 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A feature of the rooftop concert from the documentary was released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures in some United States IMAX theatres on 30 January 2022, with a global theatrical release from 11 to 13 February. The 30 January presentation was accompanied by a live-streamed Q&A with Jackson. In response to one question during the Q&A, Jackson said there were additional hours of restored but unreleased footage and interviews. As of 20 February 2022[update], the film has grossed $936,764 in the United States box office and $1.2 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $2.2 million.

BTL: I do want to ask about the workflow between you and the film editing department. They obviously had 60 hours of film, as you said, and for the rooftop concert, they were working with footage from 10 cameras at once. With all that film, would you be cleaning up all of it or did you have to wait and know what they were going to use?
I noticed that the birthday song on youtube was recently removed from the rooftop concert and replaced with the Paul McCartney version. I loved the original. I do see the rooftop concert on vimeo however the birthday song is not included. Perhaps something about copyright issues? Can the birthday song video from the rooftop concert be ordered somewhere?
The Airplane did a rooftop concert a month earlier (December 7) at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City. The Beatles followed, followed by U2 and two other groups whose names I cannot remember. So you see, the Beatles did not start that one.

After Harrison failed to show up for the sessions on January 13th, 14th or 15th, a band meeting was held at Ringo's house, where they urged Harrison to come back and complete the project. Harrison agreed to re-join the band under the condition they give up on the idea of a live concert, and move the filming to the Beatles' new studio in their Apple headquarters. 041b061a72
