The Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of The Beatles: Get Back, Peter Jackson’s acclaimed documentary on the legendary British rock band that became a streaming hit on Disney+ as a three-part miniseries, had been slated for Feb. 8 but has been delayed due to a technical issue, a Disney spokesperson announced Jan. 31. A new street date is pending.
The initial release date was slated for nine days after an hour-long concert film of the group’s iconic 1969 rooftop concert was released at select Imax theaters on Jan. 30, the 53rd anniversary of the performance atop the Apple Corps’ Savile Row headquarters. The concert film includes a Q&A with director Jackson, who said in a statement, “I’m thrilled that the rooftop concert from The Beatles: Get Back is going to be experienced in Imax, on that huge screen. It’s The Beatles’ last concert, and it’s the absolute perfect way to see and hear it.”
