Beatles fans rejoice. On October 9, Apple Films released a fully restored version of the long out-of-print classic fab four road movie, Magical Mystery Tour. The re-issued film comes in DVD and Blu-ray format and includes a remixed soundtrack (by Giles Martin and Sam Okell), newly filmed interviews, unseen footage, director’s commentary by Paul and a host of other special features.
The Beatles devised, wrote and directed their third film, Magical Mystery Tour, a dreamlike story of a coach day trip to the seaside. The film follows a loose narrative and showcased six new songs: Magical Mystery Tour, The Fool On The Hill, I Am The Walrus, Flying, Blue Jay Way, and Your Mother Should Know.
Apple Films have fully restored the long out-of-print, classic feature film and it’s now available worldwide on DVD and Blu-ray with a remixed soundtrack (5.1 and stereo) and special features. A special, boxed deluxe edition is also available.
All of the packages contain a host of special features, packed with unseen footage. There are newly-filmed interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and other members of the film’s cast and crew, as well as a director’s audio commentary recorded by Paul.
