Trailer for the Beatles “Get Back”: It’s Going to Be Such a Comical Thing in 50 Years Time…They Broke Up Because Yoko Sat on an Amp”


The trailer is here for Peter Jackson’s Beatles documentary about the making of Let it Be. The three part “Get Back” is meant to erase the memory of Michael Lindsay Hogg’s original 1970 movie that showed the Beatles in distress as they made the album and recorded the famous rooftop concert.

The trailer has a lot of great moments. But the best is Paul, in 1969, saying, “It’s such a comical thing…In 50 years time…They broke up because Yoko sat on an amp.”

And that’s exactly what happened. I guess this why Paul once wrote the famous line, “Many years from now.” He was prescient.

On Disney Plus November 25, 26, and 27.
