Disney To Re-Launch Yellow Submarine

Disney Studios is confriming plans to remake the animated Beatles movie.  Director Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future, Forest Gump, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) is at the helm of the 3d project.   Much of the charm of the 1968 original was its lack of technical effects.  Hi-tech effects will likely take charge this time.  Reports are circulating that the remake will use the almost too real animation effects used in Polar ExpressZemeckis attended film school at the University of Southern California after a video he did of a Beatles song helped persuade admissions officials to consider more than his grade average.    They were glad they did.  USC dedicated a multi-million dollar Digital Arts Center on the Los Angeles campus in his name a decade ago.
