Beatles Documentary Director: Disney Wanted to Edit Out Smoking, Swearing

The director of the now-streaming Beatles music documentary “Get Back” says Disney wanted to sanitize parts of the film.

According to the New York Post, director Peter Jackson said the Beatles “don’t want it to be sanitized. Disney wanted to remove all the swearing and Ringo, Paul, and Olivia [Harrison] said ‘That’s how we spoke. That’s how we talked. That’s how we want the world to see us.'”

The documentary appearing on Disney+ is featured as a three-part series. It includes a disclaimer at the start of every episode that reads: “This footage contains explicit language, mature themes and smoking.”
