Movie synopsis

In this animated feature with the Fab Four, the magical Pepperland is invaded by the Blue Meanies, who have declared war on all that is good--especially music. At the request of a befuddled emissary from Pepperland, the lads from Liverpool take a ride in their yellow submarine to aid the besieged residents in their battle.Peter Max designed the distinctive look of the animation, and the real-live Beatles themselves appear in a brief sequence at the film's end. Includes the songs "Yellow Submarine," "Just A Northern Song," "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Eleanor Rigby," "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "Nowhere Man," "A Day in the Life," and others, as well as several orchestral numbers by noted Beatle producer George Martin.

Editorial reviews

"...The Beatles' time-travel journey back to mod-dom..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (09/17/1999)

"...This is a story that appeals even to young children, but it also has a knowing, funny style that adds an undertow of sophistication....The movie exists as pure charm, expressed in fantastical imagery..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (09/05/1999)

4 stars out of 5 -- "The Beatles' 'mod odyssey' remains a riot....The trippy images and narrative stretch animation's boundaries."
Total Film - Kevin Harley (06/01/2012)

"YELLOW SUBMARINE turned out to be probably the first great non-Disney animated movie, a modernesque collection of pop songs and a genuinely funny film..."
Uncut - Uncut Staff (07/01/2012)

"The visual style created by Czech-German graphic designer Heinz Edelmann still dazzles today and feels more vital than any animated feature of recent years."
Film Comment - Dave Filipi (07/01/2012)

"The film's lasting value in both pop culture and animation history lies in art director Heinz Edelman's anything-goes approach to conceptual design..."
Sight and Sound - Michael Brooke (07/01/2012)

"Now available in a suitably momentous video reissue, with both its songs and its trippy images vibrantly remastered....Enough inspired surrealism to hold up 30 years later..." -- Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly - Michael Sauter (09/17/1999)
