We are thrilled to present the newly released 50th Anniversary 4K Restoration of 1968’s Yellow Submarine!
Once upon a time….or maybe twice….there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, 80,000 leagues under the sea it lay, a place where beauty, happiness, and music reign supreme. But this peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all color and hope. So it’s The Beatles to the rescue!, as our animated heroes team up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man and journey across seven seas to free Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, color, and love to the world.
Yellow Submarine has been restored in 4K Digital Resolution by Paul Rutan Jr. and his team of specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. The film’s songs and score were remixed in 5.1 stereo surround sound at UMG’s Abbey Road Studios by music mix engineer Peter Cobbin. 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.

“★★★★. A music-based animated film for the ages.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“A garish, gorgeous example of pop art at its finest, Yellow Submarine’s reappearance should give a whole new generation a chance to discover the legends.” – Caroline Westbrook, Empire
“A marvel of innocence and free association, blending several animation techniques in a loose narrative full of gentle bad puns and flowing visual segues.” – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
