Product Details


Product Description

The Beatles' classic 1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, has been digitally restored for DVD and Blu-ray release. The film's songtrack album CD is also being re-issued. 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. Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including Eleanor Rigby," When I'm Sixty-Four," Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," All You Need Is Love," and It's All Too Much." When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognized as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques. Digi Blu-Ray to include 16 page booklet, reproductions of film cells of each of the four Beatles characters + stickers. Extra features: Mod Odyssey documentary [TRT: 7:30] Interviews: - Paul Angelis (voice of Ringo and Chief Blue Meanie) [TRT: 1:39] - John Clive (voice of John) [TRT: 2:03] - David Livesey (key animator) [TRT: 1:11] - Millicent McMillan (Heinz Edelmann's assistant) [TRT: 1:12] - Jack Stokes (animation director) [TRT: 3:42] - Erich Segal (co-writer) [TRT: 1:38]

VIDEO:

Yellow Submarine arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.66:1 encode on a single BD-50 disc. To quote from the End Credits: "Due to the delicate nature of this hand drawn artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean up of the restored photochemical elements used for scanning. All digital clean up was done by hand, frame by frame." This release is also culled from a 4K scan and the results are simply spectacular. Primary colours are unbelievably bold and vibrant. Line detail is exceptionally strong. The overall appearance of Yellow Submarine is amazingly sharp and precise. This proves an animated film doesn't have to be created in a purely digital environment to end up looking nearly picture perfect on Blu-ray. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track in Yellow Submarine is simply out of this world. The audio is stupendously effective, with brilliant clarity and excellent fidelity. Being a lover of Beatles' music, it is very gratifying to hear clean, crisp Beatles music in lossless surround. The low end is especially impressive. The surround channels are used consistently not just for the music elements but for the panoply of wild sound effects that fill up the soundtrack, but their use is incredibly effective in the music elements, especially in moments like the phased and chorused vocals in the verses of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". A purely enjoyable Beatles soundtrack in 5.1. (5/5)

PACKAGING:

The packaging consists of slipcover in original pressing DigiPak. The accompanying booklet is well written, with Introduction by John Lasseter. The various aspects of how Yellow Submarine is brought to high definition are detailed. It forms very interesting reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I give it a 7 out of five! June 5 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Wow and I say again wow. The improvement to this film compared to the original DVD release is amazing. The picture is bright. There is almost zero grain and the colours are ..well.. Beautiful. The DTS- HD 5.1 soundtrack is full sounding. Not just for a film that came out in Mono but that has come out in any audio format.
The film it's self is a classic up there with the best juke box movies and is an animation classic. I am not going to get into the story but it is based on Beatle songs (not just John and Paul there are some of George's songs as well). This film is great for children and adults. This film is a masterpiece.
My only complants are. 1) you don't get the audio track of just the songs in 5.1 that you got in the original DVD. 2) you don't have the option of watching the North American version of the film that cut out Hey Bulldog. But you can always skip the chapter. But why would you the song is brilliant and works perfect in the film. My third and last complant is the packaging is of very poor quality. Lots of cool stuff but the box it comes in could have been made of better material.
But again the film it's self is great and has never looked or sounded better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last Blue Meanie (Paul Angelis) Nov. 19 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I saw this in a double billing with Barbarella (1968) at West Point, NY.

The music is great and it brings back a part of history. Can the Beatles save Pepperland? Remember we all live in a Yellow Submarine. Instead of just buying the soundtrack, buy the movie and you have them both. I guess I will have to buy it also to hear "Hey, Bulldog!" Of course as with most movies there will always be someone one that prefers the original and knows that it was cut that way on purpose.

And now it is time for a whole new generation to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Artform Aug. 13 2013
By 2Sheds
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
An original work of art that had inspired a genre. I did not appreciate back 30 years ago, when I last watched this movie, just how influential this film was. It is wonderfully restored and it is a great testament to what the Beatles were all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful tribute to my favourite movie Jan. 28 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Yellow Submarine has always been one of my favourite movies, and to see it finally released again after 14 or so years is gratifying. The wait was worth it, because the Blu-Ray conversion is fantastic. I don't have a heavy duty sound system for movie watching, but what I did hear was crystal clear, and the picture quality is similarly fantastic. The people who did the conversion should be commended.

Anyone who loves the Beatles or Yellow Submarine in particular should seriously think about grabbing a copy before it disappears again for another decade!
