Zemeckis to remake the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine

Posted on 20 August 2009 by ShepRamsey

I guess motion-capture animation is where Robert Zemeckis has gone to stay.  Now, with his A Christmas Carol just on the horizon, he’s signing on to bring the technology to the trippy world of Yellow Submarine

According to Variety, Zemeckis is inbeatles-yellow-submarine-characters talks with Disney to remake the Beatles’ 1968 animated feature with hopes for it to be ready around the time of the 2012 Olympics. 

The real hurdle that they are having to jump is acquiring the rights to sixteen of the Fab Four’s songs for the film, which makes me wonder if the project’s current emergence has anything to do with the recent death of Michael Jackson, who had owned the rights to most of the Beatles’ songs.  I feel like this one’s been thought about for a good long while. 

Whether they’re successful with it or not, I’m not sure how well this would work today–especially if Disney is involved, then it will probably need to be made as straightforward as possible.  And who wants that??  Oh well.  At least it would have good music.

    Oh no!!!! They’re gonna screw up another classic!!! The music will all be remade and they’ll get those stupid bimbos from Disney Channel to do the voices! The plot is probably gonna be butchered also. God, this is gonna be worse than that movie they made about MDC shooting John. Somebody please stop this!
