Peter Jackson's Beatles film gets preview

The Beatles in 1969
Footage from Peter Jackson's upcoming documentary about the Beatles' Get Back/Let it Be project was previewed at the Universal Music showcase last weekend.

Variety published these details:
“We have created a brand-new film that will attempt to bust the myth that the ‘Let It Be’ sessions were the final nail in the Beatles’ coffin,” Jones said.
And sure enough, an amazing counter-narrative to “Let It Be” film has ensued: It’s brighter both visually and spiritually, with many, many shots of the Beatles joking around, making fun of each other, singing in silly accents and generally indulging in vintage Moptop hijinks. It also features many scenes of the group rehearsing songs from the “Abbey Road” album — their true swan song, which would be recorded over the following summer — and even rough versions of songs that would appear on solo records. On the basis of this clip, Beatles fans will lose their minds over this film.
 The new film is titled "Let it Be Happy!" No... I'm just making that up.
