Miramax Home Entertainment and Buena Vista Home Entertainment have teamed up to release Paul McCartney: The Music and Animation Collection on DVD. The disc includes 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 features 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 (The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends) to enhance the animation with additional special effects.
Jeff Tahler, VP of acquisitions, oversaw the project for Miramax in New York and Colin Vaines, exec. VP of European production and development, handled the project for Miramax in the U.K.
The Buena Vista Home Entertainment release is now available for the suggested retail price of $29.99.
