On the heels of releasing the digitally restored version of their 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine, The Beatles have released two video clips free to watch online.
The first video shows a clip from the actual movie, in which the guys get blown through a surreal atmosphere by a group of sneezing heads. It’s just as whimsical and bizarre as it always was.
The second video clip shows a clip of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” while director Heinz Edelmann provides commentary about the animation process for the video. Much of the “loosely painted onto cel” animation was improvised, and Edelmann says that in a strange way the animation serves as a “documentary of the 1960s.”
The fully restored Yellow Submarine is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
