The Beatles' Yellow Submarine Feature Film Restored for May Release on DVD and Blu-ray; Film's Songtrack Album to be Reissued

LONDON, March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beatles' classic 1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, has been digitally restored for DVD and Blu-ray release on May 28 (May 29 in North America). The film's songtrack album will be reissued on CD on the same date.Currently out of print, the film has been restored in 4K digital resolution for the first time by Paul Rutan Jr. and his team of specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. Due to the delicate nature of the hand-drawn original artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean-up of the film's restored photochemical elements.This was all done by hand, frame by frame.

Bonus features for the Yellow Submarine DVD and Blu-ray include a short making-of documentary titled "Mod Odyssey" (TRT: 7:30), the film's original theatrical trailer, audio commentary by producer John Coates and art director Heinz Edelmann, several brief interview clips with others involved with the film, storyboard sequences, 29 original pencil drawings and 30 behind-the-scenes photos. Both Digipak packages will include reproductions of animation cels from the film, collectible stickers, and a 16-page booklet with a new essay by Yellow Submarine aficionado John Lasseter (Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios).

The Song Track was a fantastic release back in 98 or whenever this was last reissued. I hope they do some vinyl releases.

I thought they did all this, cleaning up the film and re-released the soundtrack, back in 1999. Why is it being done, again? Has the technology improved in cleaning and restoring film negatives? Is Apple cash-strapped by doing this? I enjoy the 1999 re-release of it! And the re-release of the soundtrack will recieve the 2009 remaster treatment I'm sure?

Well, at least the blu-ray edition will improve picture quality comparing with the previous release, wich, also, is out of print.

I bought the last one on VHS. That's how quickly things are moving. Personally I'd rather they put their efforts toward getting Let It Be released.
