2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the theatrical release of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, so to celebrate, Apple Corps and Universal Music Group have announced that the’ll be rereleasing the weird animated classic in theaters this July. That comes from a press release, which also says this version of Yellow Submarine will be updated to 4K digital resolution, allowing you to see the Chief Blue Meanie, the Apple Bonkers, and those lovable lads from Liverpool much clearer than ever before. The music will also be remixed to 5.1 stereo surround sound, with the press release specifically noting that all of the restoration was “done by hand, frame by frame” with “no automated software.” That means this will be a proper old-school high-def restoration, not one of those modern restorations with no soul.

You can see a trailer for the restoration below, which oddly doesn’t include an actual release date.
