The Beatles 'Let It Be' and 'Magical Mystery Tour' may be headed to Blu-ray and DVD
More than 40 years after their release, The Beatles' "Let It Be" and the "Magical Mystery Tour" films may finally be coming to Blu-ray and DVD.
"Let It Be" director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who has making the rounds to promote his autobiography "Luck and Circumstance," spoke about The Beatles in an interview with radio station WNYC-FM."We have been been working on it pretty much every year for the last couple of years. And the plan is, at the moment, to have it come out, I think, in 2013," Lindsay-Hogg said.
Lindsay-Hogg also directed the Fab Four's promotional videos for "Paperback Writer," "Hey Jude" and "Revolution," as well as music videos for The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney and Wings.
A home video release of "Let It Be," featuring outtakes and additional footage highlighting the making of the 1970 documentary, would follow a planned DVD release of the band's self-directed 1967 TV special "Magical Mystery Tour" in 2012, according to Beatles ExaminerBoth films were briefly available on VHS in the early 1980s.
Pirated copies have become popular staples at record collector shows for decades.
Alternate scenes from "Let It Be" and "Magical Mystery Tour" were featured in "The Beatles Anthology," a documentary created by the surviving band members in 1995.
