The new project sees Jackson working on 56 hours of unseen footage of the band as they record their final album Let it Be. The original Let it Be film, which featured the band's legendary roof top performance in London, was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and released in 1970.

Jackson has been working on the movie in a New Zealand editing suite with the same restoration team which produced They Shall Not Grow Old.

He began working on the project in 2018 and had planned to release the film earlier this year. However, the pandemic means it is now slated for release in the late summer of 2021.

Speaking about the new clip, Jackson said, "We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.

"We wanted to give the fans of The Beatles all over the world a holiday treat, so we put together this five-minute sneak peek at our upcoming theatrical film The Beatles: Get Back."
