In the clip, Jackson reveals that he’s about halfway through the edit of the film, which is pieced together from 56 hours of unseen footage captured during sessions for 'The Beatles’ Let It Be album in early 1969.

The documentary is the story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they plan their first live show in over two years. The film draws from material originally captured for director Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1970 documentary of the album. 

The film was supposed to be released in September but was postponed to 2021 because of COVID-19.
