Ringo Starr appeared in a new video via SiriusXM discussing director Peter Jackson's upcoming film culled from the unused footage of the Beatles' 1970 Let It Be movie. The still-untitled film is based around 55 hours of never-released footage of the group rehearsing and recording at Twickenham Film Studios and Apple Studios, shot between January 2nd and January 31st, 1969.
Ringo promised that unlike the original theatrical release, Peter Jackson's new production — using entirely different footage than the 1970 film — will provide a more well-rounded look at the "Fab Four's" state of the union during that period: ["Y'know, when Michael Lindsey-Hogg put his film together, they just stuck to those seconds of argument, y'know? But there was a lot of joy and I think Peter will show that. We sat 'round with his iPad for two hours and he was excited, I was excited, and he was showin' me bits. 'Cause he felt, similar to me, that the other version was a bit down. There was no need for it to be down. Michael Lindsey-Hogg took one point of view, little moments and built the whole thing around that. This one, I think, will be more expressive, and more like we were."] SOUNDCUE (:35 OC: . . . like we were)
