There is every reason to think that Mary McCartney, daughter of Paul and Linda McCartney, has unique access to Abbey Road studios in London. This autumn, Disney+ will show her documentary film, "If these walls could talk", about the mythical studio.

In the past year, Disney+ has distinguished itself as the Beatles channel after premiering both Peter Jackson's great "The Beatles: Get back" and "McCartney 3,2,1" with Paul McCartney and producer Rick Rubin.

"If these walls could talk" is produced by John Batisek, who has "One Day in September" and "Searching for Sugarman" on his CV.

The film will include interviews with e.g. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Elton John, John Williams, Jimmy Page, Pink Floyd, Liam and Noel Gallagher and Kate Bush.

Mary McCartney is a photographer, writer and food presenter.

Elton John's husband, David Furnish, is one of the producers behind the documentary with the sensational title "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton John performances and the years that made his legend".

The film is directed by R.J. Cutler ("Belushi", Billie Eilish: The World's a little blurry") and will include concert recordings of Elton John's last concert in the United States, which will take place at the Los Angeles Dodger Stadium in November.

The film will otherwise focus on the first five years of John's solo career in the early 1970s, when he released a total of ten albums. Several of which went to the top of the sales lists.

In 2019, the biographical feature film "Rocket Man" was successful in cinemas, starring Taron Egerton.

The upcoming documentary is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ during 2023.
