The director collated more than 60 hours of footage from Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 film Let It Be, documenting the band’s fractious recording sessions for what would be their final album.

The result is three episodes lasting 468 minutes. Some fans claim it is too long.

Jackson’s latest project is so long that it has divided Disney+ viewers. One commented: “Watched all of Get Back!” I think it was too long, but for hxc Beatles lovers, it was. But, for me, it could be cut to 2 hours easily.

Another joked that he had seen “The Beatles Get Back.” I will have a much shorter review in the next couple days.

A third person added: “I love #TheBeatles, but the #GetBack document was long and boring. It was presented as though we were watching a master painter paint a masterpiece. In reality, it was like watching him buy the paint before actually painting. It wasn’t, according to The Beatles Anthology. I want my 8 hours back.

Others were more positive about the series’ response, with one tweeting: “Peter Jackson’s new documentary #GetBack, the last days of #Beatles, is brilliant. It’s a time-consuming investment, but it’s worth it. It’s especially important when the Blue It’s not uncommon for meanies to show up. (You’ll have the opportunity to see).

A third fan expressed gratitude for the band’s use Billy Preston, who played keyboards in Get Back.

“How great is The Beatles get back documentary? All geniuses. Billy Preston is an undiscovered hero. They said that they were the most happy men alive.

Jackson claims that Lindsay-Hogg’s footage was used liberally by Jackson, which is essential as it could be lost for 50 more years.

He Submitted NME: ‘I’d like to say that I didn’t really leave out anything that I thought was important. That is why the duration is what it is today.

‘I felt acutely – and this is the Beatles fan part of me kicking in – anything I don’t include in this movie might go back in the vault for another 50 years.

“I was seeing and hearing these incredible moments. I thought: “God, people must see this. This is amazing. They must see it.”

He Addition: “One of the most iconic Beatles things is the full length Dig It. On the Let It Be album there’s only 40, 50 seconds of Dig It, which was like an improvised song that they do. Beatles fans know that the original is also available on bootleg.

‘We trimmed it to get it down to four minutes or something because the original is 12 or 13 minutes long… So you get a lot more than you do on the Let It Be album.’

During the docuseries, The Beatles: Get Back, viewers were left confused by a warning about smoking at the beginning of Disney+.

Each episode opens with a warning about explicit language, mature themes, and smoking.

The three-part-series takes viewers back to 1970, when the band recorded intimately and performed for their final album, Let It Be.

One fan posted online in reaction: ‘I liked the warning on Get Back… SMOKING. Casablanca should be canceled on this basis.

Another member pointed out that the smoking alert was odd, as the members of the band were drug-users at one time.

A third wrote, “Get Back was worth it.” Because of time constraints, I am only able to watch episode 2 part-way. I have to laugh at the disclaimer regarding people who smoke. This warning is unnecessary. How fragile is society! It’s a goddamned cigarette. It’s a terrible habit.

Another user reacted, saying: Watching the Beatles doc #GetBack there is actually a trigger warning: This footage contains explicit language and mature themes and smoking. Seriously?’

MailOnline reached out to Disney+ for comment.
