'Yellow Submarine' Blu-ray Moved to June

Posted Thu May 10, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Submerge yourself with The Beatles on... June 5.

'Yellow Submarine' was originally scheduled for an end of May release, but it has since been moved back a week to June 5, 2012.

Once upon a time… or maybe twice, there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, a place where happiness and music reigned supreme. But all that was threatened when the terrible Blue Meanies declared war and sent in their army led by a menacing Flying Glove to destroy all that was good. Enter John, Paul, George and Ringo to save the day! Armed with little more than their humour, songs, and of course, their yellow submarine, The Beatles tackle the rough seas ahead in an effort to bring down the evil forces of bluedom.

The animated classic has been fully restored in 4K and presented in the original aspect ratio of 1:66-1. Its 89 minutes long. It will feature an English DTS 5.1 track.

Special features include an audio commentary featuring art director Heinz Edelmann and producer John Coates. Also included is the Mod Odyssey documentary and the original theatrical trailer.

The movie's list price is $34.98.
