Disney to Remake "Yellow Submarine" in 3-D

Walt Disney Co is to remake the zany 1960s Beatles movie "Yellow Submarine" in 3-D in a deal with the band's company Apple Corps. Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook said on Friday the new "Yellow Submarine" will be directed by Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis using the same motion-capture effects he employed in the family movie "Polar Express."

It will incorporate the 16 Beatles songs and recordings from the original film, licensed from Sony/ATV Music Publishing and EMI Capitol Records. No release date was announced.

The original film, about a peaceful, music-loving underwater community that is attacked by music hating "blue meanies", was released in the U.S. in 1968 and directed by George Dunning.

The Disney film project extends a wave of "Beatlemania" ushered in by the release of the remastered edition of the Fab Four's albums this week, and an interactive video game for a new generation of fans.

Does Disney even realize YS was a drug fantasy?

I don't think they care.

Disney is not a wholesome institution anymore.

How would you cast the show?

I guess I would start by trying to find a replacement for Peter Maxx.

I was a huge Beatles fan from my childhood through my teens but even I could not sit through "Yellow Submarine".

I'm sure it was conceived of and produced when they were all high as a kite.

The remake could star Jurgen Prochnow- “Das Gelb Boot”. Or maybe the Beatles try to thread the needle at Gibraltar and don’t quite make it past the Royal Navy...the crossover possibilities are endless.

I guess Disney don’t care that the Blue Meanie hats were spoofs of the iconic Mouse Ear caps...or maybe that’s what attracted them.
Dumb idea either way.

I greatly prefer “Yellow Submarine Sandwich” by the Rutles, featuring the zany song “Cheese and Onions.”

Disney has completely run out of ideas.
