Yellow Submarine in 3D

Disney plans to remake Yellow Submarine … in 3D. What I want to know is, how did the Blue Meanies get hold of the rights to this film anyway?

A 3D remake of The Beatles’ 1968 film Yellow Submarine has been confirmed, Disney Studios has announced.

It will incorporate the 16 Beatles songs and recordings from the original animated film.

Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook said the new film will be directed by Robert Zemeckis using the same motion-capture effects employed in Polar Express.

  1. I was reminded of Yellow Submarine just recently by a fantastic new Japanese animated film that I happened to stumble across, called “Ponyo,” that I highly recommend! Especially to animation fans. Go see it while it’s on the big screen – you won’t be sorry.

    The story is incredibly charming and the visuals are beautiful and also charmming, and very trippy at times. Among many other strange and wonderful things there are some beautiful Devonian seas scenes.

    It had the Disney stamp, but they appear to be just the distributor.

  2. They are keeping songs and some recordings from the original soundtrack. Would that they could keep the original animation. A 3D tweak of that could be fun, without sacrificing everything to The Mouse.

    And yes, that would be just about the least change a “remake” could go through…

  3. Keyrist, what next? Disney does Casablanca?

    It is a shame that Hollywood has so may remakes on the docket. What happened to innovation and risk for filmmakers?

  4. I don’t mind when somebody does a new film version of a book, or a play. There, they can – at least potentially – do something different with the original material. But how do you do a remake of something that was only ever a film? Unless the original was just crap and you’re going to do it right; but then if the original wasn’t any good why would you want to?

    Perhaps I should do a re-write of “Catch 22”. That was very popular but it was quite a few years ago so I’m sure people would like to read a new version of it.

    I suppose in the early days of cinema, particularly before home video equipment became commonplace there might have been some point to it. People really couldn’t go back and look at a film from a decade ago. But now, if I want to watch “Yellow Submarine”, I can do it anytime I want.
