50th Anniversary of the animated movie “Yellow Submarine” news

There is an old saying that goes “It ain’t over till it’s over.” When I saw an article in the entertainment pages of the internet about a re-release of the Beatles animated movie that came out in 1968 called “Yellow Submarine” which I believe is the only animated movie that the Beatles made throughout their musical run from 1960-1970.

It seems that television shows like “Batman” which played on the American Broadcasting Company from 1966-1968 have a fan following that just admires the shows that would be called “Cult classics”.

Before the passing of actor Adam West who passed away in 2017, Adam and his Batman co-star Burt Ward did lend their voices to work on a 50th Anniversary cartoon movie of their “Batman” adventures.

What makes this release of the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles “Yellow Submarine” will be will the teenagers who probably never heard of the Fab Four from Liverpool England would be interested in seeing a musical band that had a huge fan base during their musical careers that ran from 1960-1970 before the band broke up and they went on solo careers?

The soundtrack has songs from the Beatles as well as music from their former producer the late Sir George Martin which is basically instrumental music.

What I can say about the Beatles “Yellow Submarine” movie was that the animation was odd but entertaining.

The 50th Anniversary of the Beatles movie will be released on July 8, 2018 in theaters. I am hoping that young fans who never heard of The Beatles will go see this movie to see since teenagers of that era still love The Beatles even after the band broke up in 1970 and they never had a reunion concert after the deaths of John Lennon in 1980 and George Harrison in 2001.

  1. I saw the movie when it first came out. Technically it was ahead of its time but I thought it was hokey. There was a Beatles cartoon series but I don’t think they had anything to do with its production.

    • I remember seeing the movie in a theater in Balboa Panama when it came out. I liked the ending since the real live version of the Beatles appeared before the closing credits.
