Disney to Disneyfy The Beatles

Could there be any way to make a pointless Disney 3D remake of Yellow Submarine even more annoying?

Disney intends to release the film to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics.

Ah, yes. Because of John Lennon having held the UK triple jump record for seven years back in the early 70s, of course. Why wouldn't you want to celebrate the very made-up links between The Beatles and The Olympics?

There are still negotiations being pursued before the project gets under way - presumably trying to shave three cents off the production costs of the Blue Meanies plush toys.
