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.)

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 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.


 
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?

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.

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...

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.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces. I'm also ewe2.
