|Fifty years ago, colorful, mustachioed cartoon versions of the Beatles traipsed across the surreal world of
Pepperland to defeat the Blue Meanies in the film "Yellow Submarine."
The movie will return to theaters across the United States, Britain and Ireland this summer to celebrate
The movie's psychedelic landscapes have been restored in 4K digital resolution; the animation was cleaned
up by hand, frame by frame, rather than through automated digital software. The audio, which features Beatles'
songs like "A Day in the Life" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," was remixed in 5.1 stereo sound at Abbey
Road Studios where the Beatles recorded most of their work.
The film was directed by the animation producer, George Dunning and follows the band on a winding trek
through locations real (Liverpool) and absurd (the Sea of Holes), While the Fab Four, below were voiced by
impersonators in the film, they appear briefly in person in the last scene.
The film was memorably parodied in "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story."
Specific movie locations have yet been announced. Tickets are on sale at yellowsubmarine.film.
