Noel and Liam Gallagher are set to reunite as part of a feature-length special Oasis documentary.

The Mancunian duo will put their years-long feud aside to focus on the 25 year anniversary of their iconic Knebworth concert – an event that 250,000 keen fans will remember forever.

The film will be produced by RSA Films and Noel Gallagher and Liam Gallagher will serve as executive producers. It will be financed and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment and released theatrically by Trafalgar Releasing.

Knebworth will be immortalised on the big screen with the release of a feature length documentary film of the events.

It is set to be released later this year.

Knebworth House is an iconic concert venue, at which Oasis played to a 250,000 strong audience.

But more than 2.5million people applied for tickets – the largest demand for concert tickets in British history.

Noel has since said he remembers "nothing" about the concert itself – but hopefully the documentary might help to jog his memory a little.

Speaking on Desert Island Discs, he said: "Genuinely, now, if I close my eyes, I can’t remember walking on stage at Knebworth. I know it took place because there were lots of people there."

The feature film will be directed by Jake Scott, the brains behind music videos for bands including Oasis, R.E.M., U2, The Verve and The Rolling Stones.

Speaking about the film, Jake commented: "It’s a story driven entirely by the music, a rock and roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream of consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event.

"No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections."

The film will take a closer look into the concert's significant cultural impact back in 1996, including the "visceral rock n' roll excess and abandon" Oasis helped to create.

Widely described as "the concert that defined an era", Knebworth made musical history in more than one way.

They held the record for the biggest crowd until 2003, when Robbie Williams played a total of three nights at the same venue and brought in an audience of 375,000.

But Oasis beat out bands like Queen and Led Zeppelin, who had played there in the 70s and 80s.

The news comes after Oasis officially split in 2009 after years of bad blood between the brothers.

This will be their first project together since the band split, despite burgeoning rumours of an Oasis reunion.

Initially, back in 2013, Noel told Rolling Stone magazine that he "wouldn't be part of" any getting-back-together of the band.

"We are split up. You've heard that, haven't you? You must've heard… Yeah, so, ergo, band splits up, band is no more. There is no band. So, no, I won't be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won't be in it," he said.

But speaking on the radio in 2015, he offered hope that his mind might have been changed, as he told Chris Moyles: "One should never say never, should one look like a bit of an idiot somewhere down the road, when you’re waving a cheque for a quarter of a billion in The Sun!"

In February this year, Liam responded to a fan on Twitter, who wrote: "HEY LIAM, I need you to give me hope that Oasis will come back please. I'm 19 years old I want to live that concert, I HATE not being born earlier."

To which Liam replied: "It's gonna happen."

And it appears they might finally have let bygones be bygones.
