    • On June 5, 2012, a new 4K, frame-by-frame digital restoration of The Beatles' classic 1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray disc. It will also be shown in select theaters across the U.S. At the same time, a new digitally remastered soundtrack CD will be released as well. EMI's press release says that "due to the delicate nature of the hand-drawn original artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean-up of the film's restored photochemical elements." All the work was done by hand, one frame at a time. According to EMI, the original melding of "live-action photography with animation, 3-dimensional sequences and kaleidoscopic 'rotoscoping'" (where film is traced frame by frame into drawings), "took nearly two years, 14 different scripts, 40 animators and 140 technical artists" to complete.
