The original wasn't written by nor did it star The Beatles (except a brief cameo at the end) so remaking it shouldn't be a problem but somehow it doesn't seem right. I guess we are all so used to the original that we don't want change. The old version will still be available and the new version will still contain their songs so it should still be good. The original was groundbreaking in terms of the art so the new one better contain the best damn computer animation ever for it to stand a chance at success. Beatle fans will most likely pan it before it comes out for the simple fact that its a remake of a classic but as soon as we see it (or, more importantly, hear it) we'll love it. I hope.

My biggest hope is that they keep the same Beatle cameo ending with John and the telescope. a-hard-days-night-john-3


Youve really been waiting to use the a-hard-days-night-john-3 smiley haven't you! 

No but in all seriousness I also hope it has Ringo's hole in his pocket!

Hopefully it is all the same as the original. but what would happen if Hey Bulldog wasnt in the remake! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

 

Anytime at all, all you gotta do is call, and I'll be there.

We might not get to see it at all: Yellow Submarine In Jeopardy As Disney Drops ImageMovers.  I hope they can work something out. I'm sure it would profitable. (I'd see it at least twice.)

a-hard-days-night-john-3 I was hoping to use at some point and it seemed like the perfect place!

I was worrying about the same thing – I hope Disney make it like the British version with Hey Bulldog and not randomly cut it out and add in a dodgy sequence instead like the American version. No idea why they did that.

What was the dodgy sequence they added? I know they cut out Hey Bulldog but didn't know they put in something else instead.

I read somewhere (Wikipedia, I think… or IMDB) that they cut out Hey Bulldog because the film was getting 'too long' and American audiences would 'lose interest'… Yeah, I don't get it much either.  To me a Beatles fan is a Beatles fan no matter what country they're in–and I don't know about you guys, but I've seen that movie about 30 times (sometimes twice in one week!) and NEVER gotten bored of it.

I also heard that there was an alternate scene that included the full sequence for 'Baby You're A Rich Man' instead of just that small excerpt…? Has anyone managed to confirm?

From imdb.com:

  • The European version contained one extra song, "Hey, Bulldog!",
    deleted from U.S. prints. This version was re-released to theatres
    worldwide in 1999 in a digitally restored print with a re-worked
    soundtrack, plus the "Hey, Bulldog!" number in its original context.
  • The
    British release of the movie had a different ending to the American
    (and subsequent video) release. Apart from different individual scenes,
    the American ending has a softer and more considerate feel to it, due to
    the final conversion of the Chief Blue Meanie to Love, Peace and Music;
    the British version contains no such sentiments.
  • One
    version of the movie has a sequence with the song "Baby You're a Rich
    Man" where the Beatles and their Sgt. Peppers look-alikes are dancing
    after being released from the "glass ball"

From beatles.wikia.com

There are some subtle differences between the US and UK movies most
noticable that The Beatles never saved Jeremy in the US version but they
did in the UK version.

And by "saved Jeremy", I have no idea what that means. From the boss blue meanie? He saved himself there.

I dowloaded (a-hard-days-night-ringo-6) Yellow Submarine a while ago and was confused when I found it was different to the British version I had previously seen. As MadiYasha said, there was no Hey Bulldog but there was Baby You're A Rich Man. After Ringo released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band from the dome, it skipped the bit where they talk to each other (themselves) and the bit where Ringo saves Jeremy who is hanging from a tree by his foot and Jeremy attempts to beat up the Blue Meanie guard. That bit's all skipped and they go straight to the Beatles jumping over the words "Love" and "Yes" and etc (to Baby You're A Rich Man), after which the Chief Blue Meanie becomes good. The Chief Blue Meanie's conversion to good is the only ending I remember, how does the British version end? I know they both end with It's All Too Much and The Beatles cameo, I mean just before that.

The one you 'aquired' is the American version? I wonder what I watched as a child because I remember Jeremy in the tree. It was before the 1999 dvd release…

Yeah, I borrowed the video (prior to downloading) from my local library and it was the British version. Wikipedia also seems to agree the American version was video and the British version was DVD. Stange. Maybe the Jeremy in a tree sequence was in the downloaded American version not the video I saw previously so you may have seen the American video. Perhaps there was a British version released on video or perhaps my library had a bootleg. Although, in 1999, DVDs had not taken over the market yet so they probably released the new DVD as a video as well.

Well, I'm going to have to look up the American version now. Wish I still had that tape. Anyone have a clue which version would have been shown on tv in the US in the early 90s?

I'm pretty sure it would have been the one without Hey Bulldog. I've a feeling it was put back in when the film was reissuedin 1999, along with the Yellow Submarine Songtrack LP.

Ah yes – from Wikipedia: this song was originally included only in the European theatrical
release, but restored for the U.S. theatrical reissue in 1999

I don't remember Hey Bulldog – I hadn't even heard the song before last year – but I do remember JHB being rescued. It is possible that it's a false memory, but my brother remembers it too…

I've seen both multiple times and probably seen mixtures of the two on YouTube so it's probably my memory that's wrong. Though I'm certain I saw the British version on video. Either way – I hope it's the British version they use for the remake. Hey Bulldog is such a good song.

I'll never see this remake, so I have no opinion about it one way or another, other than to snark about Hollywood's extreme lack of original ideas and infatuation with technology at the expense of everything else.

 

I do take a bit of comfort out of the fact that Zemeckis is obviously a Beatles fan, having done the classic "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" wayyy back when he and Bob Gale were still writing witty, original scripts.

I'll certainly see the remake (if and when it ever comes out), but I already have mixed feelings.  Special effects and CGI are incredible now, but I shudder at the thought of the "Lucy in the Sky" sequence being done in any other way than in the original.  Ditto for "Eleanor Rigby."  I don't want true art substituted by flash.  I'm afraid we'll get "Happy Feet" dancing penguins.

After seeing the original today for the first time in awhile, it made me become really curious about the remake and what they'll do with it. The original is such a product of its time. I wonder if they'll try to make it look less intensely psychedelic, and how everything will fit together, with the new actors, the addition of "live" performances of the songs (at least that's what I thought I read) and the 3D aspect to it.

I can't wait to see the trailer.

Okay, I'm gonna be brutally honest here…

 

I'm probably not going to see the remake.  Remaking Yellow Submarine just seems like a bad idea.  It would upset too many Beatle purists and I can't really see what they can do with the film.  I'm fine with the original, thank you.
