A restored version of the film with additional material was planned for DVD release in 2003, to accompany "Let It Be...Naked," Paul McCartney
's remix of the "Let It Be" album. However, in restoring the film, Apple Studios discovered that the additional unreleased footage of the Beatles contained too many controversial issues that still need to be resolved. Reportedly, Paul McCartney
and Ringo Starr
have decided that the movie and its additional material will not be released on DVD during their lifetimes, over concerns that it could hurt the Beatles' brand. See more
