We won't let it be until you've learned everything about streaming the 1970s documentary about The Beatles.

It's time to twist and shout Beatles fans, because a long lost film about the groundbreaking Liverpool band is finally streaming.

First released in 1970, Let It Be documented The Beatles trying to go back to their roots for a new album — which only further widened the rift between the members of the visionary group. Michael Lindsay-Hogg's movie has not been officially available since its theatrical release in 1970, but now Disney+ has fully restored Let It Be for you to watch it from the comfort of your own home.

For the first time in over 50 years, Let It Be is available for fans to watch on Disney+. 

As of today, May 8, 2024, Let It Be is available to stream online. The documentary has been out of circulation for decades, but following Peter Jackson's efforts on The Beatles: Get Back, and with the full support of Lindsay-Hogg, Apple Corps enlisted Jackson's Park Road Post Productions team to fully restore Let It Be.

The documentary gives audiences an inside look into the band's musical processes as they recorded their final album and performed for what would be their final time as a group. This documentary also landed the Beatles their only Oscar, which they won for Best Music, Original Song Score — a category that no longer exists at the Academy Awards.
