This is an event for kids of all ages.
The Yellow Submarine YouTube Dress-Up Sing-A-Long Watch Party is one day only Saturday, April 25th.
Set your alerts, because this fab film with the Fab Four is rarely available for viewing.
The broadcast is part of a campaign encouraging users to #StayHome during the pandemic.
“For those of you missing singing together, I’ve got good news,” said Ringo Starr in a promo video posted Wednesday on Twitter. “Tune in … for a special ‘Yellow Submarine’ movie sing-along for kids and kids at heart. Peace and love.”
YouTube is streaming a free sing-along version of the Beatles’ 1968 iconic animated film “Yellow Submarine” on The Beatles Youtube Channel at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT
Viewers are encouraged to follow along with lyrics appearing at the bottom of the screen during each musical number.
Although most of us already know by heart the lyrics to classic Beatles songs including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Nowhere Man” and “It’s All Too Much.”
And the movie’s signature song, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”
The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” singalong edition was released in theaters in 2018 to celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary, and it hasn’t been available anywhere since.
So this re-broadcast is absolutely a reason to stay at home on Saturday and return to Pepperland.
In case you don’t remember –
The movie is about an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, located 80,000 leagues under the sea, where beauty, happiness, and music reign supreme in a colorful land of music and laughter, and where Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts’ Club Band was always playing your song.
But the peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove, in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all color and hope.
The Beatles come to the rescue, teaming up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man and journey across seven seas to free Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, color, and love to the world.
Earlier this month, ABC hosted a similar event, “The Disney Family Singalong,” featuring at-home performances of classic Disney tunes sung by artists including Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera, Thomas Rhett, plus the original cast of “High School Musical” and other famous guests.
