The Beatles' Yellow Submarine set to sail in 4K by 2K

Blu-ray Meanies inbound too

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Beatles' Yellow Submarine is set to return in HD, with a digitally-restored Blu-ray Disc version of the 1968 animated classic set to hit the shelves this May.

Pepperland will appear on screens like never before after specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque cleaned up the film's artwork by hand, frame by frame, without the use of any automated software retouching work.

The work was begun after scanning the original movie in at 4k x 2k resolution. The restored 4k footage will form the basis for DVD and Blu-ray releases, which will include such extras as a short 'making of' documentary; the original theatrical trailer; audio commentary by producer John Coates and art director Heinz Edelmann; interview clips; storyboard sequences; 29 pencil drawings and 30 behind the scenes photographs.

Each package will also come with various reproduced animation cells, collectable stickers and a 16-page booklet.

The Yellow Submarine remaster for Blu-ray and DVD will be released on 28 May 2012. The Blue Meanies are coming. ®
