Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Yellow Submarine is an icon of psychedelic pop culture, a colorful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages — filled with visual invention, optical illusions, wordplay and glorious music. 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, 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 PEPPERS LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, make peace with the Meanies and restore music, color and love to the world.

A landmark in animation, with Heinz Edelmann's inspired art direction conjuring up a nonstop parade of wildly different styles and techniques, YELLOW SUBMARINE was hand-restored in digital 4K, frame by frame. From the paper-doll residents of Pepperland, to the tinted photography of the soot-covered roofs and smokestacks Liverpool, the menagerie of fanciful characters in the Sea of Monsters, the kaleidoscopic color-splashed rotoscoping of «Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,» the vertigo-inducing op-art of the Sea of Holes and the triumphant euphony of the «It's All Too Much» finale, the film is simply a joy.
