Beatles' 'Yellow Submarine' Film Restored for May Release on DVD

The Beatles’ classic late-1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, has been digitally restored for DVD and Blu-ray release on May 29. The film’s songtrack album, originally issued in September 1999 (not the original Beatles Yellow Submarine album), will be reissued on CD the same date.

The film, which is out of print, has been restored in 4K digital resolution for the first time by Paul Rutan Jr. at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. No automated software was used in the clean-up of the film’s photochemical elements. It was all done by hand, frame by frame.
