The opening cinematic features impressive life-like details and a great mix of both 3D and 2D illustrations.

A great Beatles soundtrack accompanies the vibrant animation – a must-see for Beatles fans and animation lovers.

Please please please check your facts. Jamie Hewlett did NOT produce this cinematic. Please correct this credit as soon as possible. I am sure he would not want to be mis-credited. This was directed by Pete Candeland at Passion Pictures (animation dircetor, Robert Valley). Jamie Hewlett was not involved. It is very frustrating to those who did create this not to get the credit they are due.
