Hey Jude! Paul McCartney Animation Coming to DVD

Miramax Home Entertainment and Buena Vista Home Entertainment are teaming up to release Paul McCartney: The Music and Animation Collection on DVD on April 13. The disc will include three animated classic children’s stories produced by Sir Paul McCartney, who also provides original music.

In addition to the animated tales Tropic Island Hum, Tuesday and Rupert and the Frog Song, the DVD will include an exclusive interview with McCartney, making-of featurettes, layouts, storyboards and line tests.

McCartney, a self-professed animation lover, worked with long-time collaborator Geoff Dunbar to enhance the animation with additional special effects.

Jeff Tahler, VP of acquisitions, is overseeing the project for Miramax in New York and Colin Vaines, exec. VP of European production and development, is handling the project for Miramax in the U.K.

The release will be available Tuesday, April 13, for the suggested retail price of $29.99.
