To celebrate 50 years of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, the psychedelic animated movie is returning to cinemas.
The Beatles’ acid-trip-style animation movie Yellow Submarine is heading to cinemas this summer with a few modern improvements. It has been fully restored to 4k digital resolution by hand, frame by frame, to preserve the films original artwork. Plus, the soundtrack and score have been remixed in 5.1 stereo sound by engineer Peter Cobbin in Abbey Road studios.
The psychedelic movie follows The Beatles’ journey underwater to save Pepperlandia from sinister creatures like the Blue Meanies. John, Paul, Ringo and George only appeared in the closing live action sequence and were instead voiced by four actors. This was probably a good idea considering their unparalleled acting ability (check Ringo Starr’s Mexican accent in Candy).
The film became a staple in the homes of Beatles’ fans, children and the hippie counterculture movement of the time. Yellow Submarine was directed by George Dunning and written by Lee Minoff, Jack Mendelsohn, Al Brodax and Erich Segal. The vast animation team was led by Robert Balser and Jack Stokes.
A comic book adaptation of the Yellow Submarine is also expected to be released by this year and will be produced by The Beatles’ Apple Corporation in partnership with Titan Comics.
