The Beatles’ classic 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine is to be re-issued on DVD and Blu-ray on May 28 after experts spent four months digitally restoring the original animation artwork by hand.

The Yellow Submarine Songtrack album, first issued in 1999, will also be re-released on CD on the same day. The album was produced as an alternative to the original 1968 film soundtrack album.

Disney cancels The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine remake in 3D

April 29, 2011

Disney Studios has reportedly scrapped its plans to remake The Beatles’ 1968 psychedelic film Yellow Submarine in 3D, blaming “budget issues”.

   The 3D project was to be directed by Oscar-winning Robert Zemeckis, the creative driving force behind Back To The Future, Forrest Gump and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He planned to use the same motion-capture 3D animation and special effects he employed in the films Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol.

   When the film was first announced in August 2009, Zemeckis said he hoped to get Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr involved in the project. He wanted to incorporate the 16 Beatles songs and recordings from the original film – including ‘All Together Now’, ‘All You Need Is Love’, ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.

   Last year, Zemeckis revealed that Dean Lennox Kelly (from BBC TV’s Robin Hood) would provide the voice of John Lennon, along with Peter Serafinowicz (Paul McCartney), Adam Campbell (Ringo Starr) and Cary Elwes (George Harrison).

   The original version of Yellow Submarine – directed by George Dunning – reflected the ‘peace and love’ counter-culture of 1967 and 1968 and told the story of a peaceful, music-loving underwater community that is attacked by music-hating ‘blue meanies’.
