“Working on this project has been a joyous discovery,” says Jackson. “I’ve been privileged to be a fly on the wall while the greatest band of all time works, plays and creates masterpieces. I’m thrilled that Disney have stepped up as our distributor. There’s no one better to have our movie seen by the greatest number of people.”
“I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about The Beatles recording together,” says Paul McCartney. “The friendship and love between us comes over and reminds me of what a crazily beautiful time we had.”
Ringo Starr says, “I’m really looking forward to this film. Peter is great and it was so cool looking at all this footage. There was hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the version that came out. There was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. I think this version will be a lot more peace and loving, like we really were.”
Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison also lent their support to the making of the film.
