DVD/BLU-RAY: BEATLES’ MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR FILM REMASTERED!

BUY THE DVD HERE 
BUY THE BLU-RAY HERE
BUY THE BOX SET HERE

In September 1967 The Beatles embarked on making their third film, this time conceived and directed by themselves. 

Based on a loose unscripted narrative, in the spirit of the experimental mood of the time, and directed by The Beatles themselves, the film became the vehicle to present 6 new songs – Magical Mystery Tour, The Fool On The Hill, Flying, I Am The Walrus, Blue Jay Way and Your Mother Should Know. 

Now, 45 years on, the virtually forgotten film has been fully restored and is being presented properly for the first time. 

The restoration of Magical Mystery Tour has been overseen by Paul Rutan Jr. of Eque Inc., the same company that handled the much acclaimed restoration of Yellow Submarine. The soundtrack work was done at Abbey Road Studios by Giles Martin and Sam Okell. 

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.
