"Magical Mystery Tour” will be available in DVD and Blu-ray packages, and in a special, 10” x 10” boxed deluxe edition. The deluxe edition includes both the DVD and Blu-ray, as well as a 60-page book with background information, photographs and documentation from the production, and a faithful reproduction of the mono double 7-inch vinyl EP of the film’s six new Beatles songs, originally issued in the U.K. to complement the film’s 1967 release. 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, including 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. via Goldmine
