Is this still rumor or confirmed? I can't find it listed on Amazon, and the link above is dead. The Beatles website does not have it listed either.


Hopefully it won't be cropped like the DVD version was.

Wow.  Looks like Amazon pulled it at the distributor's request.


Perhaps it wasn't meant to be announced this early?

I would suspect you will see an official announcement shortly

as no Beatles release goes without some sort of large fanfare

(which was missing here).

I wonder what they will do with the soundtrack on this. I remember the DVD was kind of a big deal because it featured "The Beatles in 5.1". I'll be satisfied with the same mix in lossless.


Of course, the aspect ratio should be 1.66:1 and uncropped as already mentioned.  Posted Image

Amazon may have pulled the listing, but it is still showing up under my orders (ordered through the HTF link).

TheBeatles.Com made the announcement today:


http://www.thebeatles.com/



Once upon a time…or maybe twice…there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland…


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 - all done by hand, frame by frame.


John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios writes "As a fan of animation and as a filmmaker, I tip my hat to the artists of Yellow Submarine, whose revolutionary work helped pave the way for the fantastically diverse world of animation that we all enjoy today."

Will we get the alternate footage that was replaced by "Hey Bulldog" this time? (As an extra if not seamless branching.) Not letting go of my Laserdisc anytime soon.

I wonder if they'll fix the audio. One major problem with the DVD was when they included the original 1968 mono mix, they, for some reason, had it switch to stereo at one point in the film, and back again.
 To all fans of Mr. Belvedere who haven't purchased season 4 yet, please watch this video.

About time Yellow Submarine got it's debut on Blu-ray. If Capitol/EMI is releasing the Blu-ray and DVD this go around, does that mean MGM lost the rights for distribution?

I suspect that is exactly what happened. If not, then they're essentially yielding them, since Apple controls the music and the intellectual property anyhow and MGM was not allowed to do any further repertory bookings or DVD repressings of the movie after the initial solicitation, so what good is owning a movie whose most exploitable elements are owned by others and won't let you do anything with it? I'm wondering if eventually, Miramax's license on A HARD DAYS' NIGHT will expire and that will get reissued though Capitol as well. Or for that matter, if we'll ever get those long-promised upgrades of MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR and LET IT BE.

At the very least, you'd think that their very good DVD of Help! from 2007 would be indicative of a Blu-ray upgrade being likely.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I took it to mean that he feels that MGM no longer has the rights to the movie. His alternate theory is that even if MGM still owned a piece of the movie, Apple owns the music and characters so without owning the music or having the rights to use it, the movie is useless to MGM and they sold whatever they did own to Apple.

MGM could have also simply licensed their distribution rights to Apple for this one title. They have a licensing agreement with Criterion, for example.
