At long last, The Beatles have announced that the out-of-print Let It Be is going to have its streaming home on Disney+.

It was only a matter of time following the work from Peter Jackson and company on the epic 2021 documentary, The Beatles: Get Back. While Disney+ has not made any formal announcements, the Beatles were cryptic on their social media pages. All they had to do was post the poster across social media and their own website. In downloading the poster off their website, the news could not be clearer: Let It Be is finally seeing the light of day again. It is right there in the file name itself!

Upon posting on social media, there was some speculation that the upcoming Sam Mendes films were coming to Disney+. One, those films are still a few years away. Two, Sony Pictures is distributing the John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr films. Others speculated that maybe it would be The Beatles Anthology getting a long overdue streaming release. While this is clearly wishful thinking, the grids on the poster imply otherwise–look at the cover art on the album and other artwork for the film!

At long last, there will be an answer and it is coming in the form of an eventual streaming release on Disney+. For You Blue–Dig it, I’ve got a feeling that Maggie Mae and two of us can get back across the universe on the long and winding road with Maggie Mae on the one after 909 and let it be. Sorry but I could not find a way to fit I Me Mine into that sentence featuring the rest of the songs on the album.

Let It Be will be released on Disney+ at a later date.
