After watching Disney Plus’ latest documentary, The Beatles: Get Back, John Lennon’s son Julian revealed he felt ‘proud’ and ‘inspired’.

The three-part series, which will air on the streaming platform on November 25, takes the audience back in time to the band’s most intimate recording sessions.

The insightful feature-length film shows Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison as they recorded their Grammy-winning studio album Let It Be, which was released in 1970.

The English songwriter, 58, attended a special screening in Los Angeles, and later reflected on the emotional event on Instagram.

‘What an amazing night. The one true thing I can say about it all is that it has made me so proud, inspired & feel more love for my/our family, than ever before, he wrote.

‘The film has made me love my father again, in a way I can’t fully describe.’

Filmmaker Peter Jackson recently admitted he had to have serious talks with Disney about breaking swearing rules for the one-off exclusive.

The Oscar-winning director also revealed he dissected 57 hours of footage of the British superstars in action, and had to persuade the beloved company to authorise the foul language within the clips.

In an interview with Radio Times, Jackson, 60, explained: ‘We got Disney to agree to have swearing, which I think is the first time for a Disney channel. That makes them feel modern, too.

‘To this day, I have never got over the fact that there was actual fly-on-the-wall footage shot of any band working in the 60s.

‘The fact it happened, and it happened with The Beatles, is amazing. You watch them at work and see them much more honestly than in any other Beatles footage.’

During this time, The Beatles were said to be extremely unhappy and Lennon once described their last recording session as ‘hell’.

The Beatles: Get Back will air on Disney Plus on November 25.
