Synopsis

Ron Howard's authorized and highly-anticipated documentary feature film is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim.

The film will explore the band’s inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities.

It will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
