Abbey Road Studios has been the backdrop to some of history’s greatest musical moments, but it has taken center stage in the new documentary If these walls could sing. The upcoming Mary McCartney movie premieres December 16 on Disney+.
“When you enter a place with a lot of history about it, it’s kind of sacred in a way,” says Elton John to begin the new trailer. “People want to come here. They want the Abbey Road sound.”
If only these walls could sing It features photos of director McCartney crawling on the rugs of the Abbey Road studios, but she spends more time with her famous father Paul, who along with the rest of the Beatles helped make the studios a household name. “This was our home, we spent a lot of time here,” he says.
One of the best moments comes when the elder McCartney, sitting in the studio, recalls a particular piece of equipment used by the Beatles, only to stop, turn around, and exclaim, “There he is!” Ringo Starr, Nile Rodgers, Noel Gallagher, Roger Waters, Celeste, and George Lucas extol the virtues of Abe Road in the trailer.
