The legendary Beatles is inviting the whole lockdown world to a karaoke party tomorrow, April 25 as the band releases the "Yellow Submarine" movie on YouTube.

The sing-a-long event will feature the band's iconic 1968 animated movie "Yellow Submarine" and will be streaming tomorrow on The Beatle's official YouTube channel at 9 am PT/12 pm ET (5 pm BST). The band is inviting the fans to not just sing-a-long with them through the help of the lyrics to be shown at the bottom of the screen, but also to dress up as one of the favorite characters from the movie or as one of the Fab Four band members to sing and dance the quarantine away.

The restored sing-a-long version of "Yellow Submarine" was released in 2018 in the cinemas in honor of the film's 50th-year. It was never released again for the public's viewership. However, the one-and-a-half-hour YouTube streaming will be a one-time-event only so make sure to catch on the special streaming.

Ringo Starr, the famous band's drummer, announced the special event on The Beatles' Twitter account on April 22. He invited the "kids and kids-at-heart" to sing-a-long with the band on YouTube.

"Yellow Submarine" is a happy movie with a psychedelic theme. The journey begins in Pepperland with its music-loving inhabitants. The 80,000 leagues under the sea happy, beautiful, music-filled place gets disturbed by the siege of the Blue Meanies, the music-hating creatures. Not knowing what to do with the Meanies' attempt to destroy the music and strip Pepperland of fun and hope, the Lord Mayor sends out sailor Old Fred to Liverpool, England. On the land, Old Fred finds the Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr) and asked for their help to restore music in their undersea world. The Fab Four goes under riding in a yellow submarine to the beleaguered Pepperland, and with the Beatles' groovy tunes, the Blue Meanies swam away.

The movie soundtrack features the band's classic songs, among them the self-titled track, "All You Need is Love," "Eleanor Rigby," "Hey Bulldog," "Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds," "It's All Too Much," and "When I'm Sixty-Four." The only known participation of the Beatles in their fourth movie, the "Yellow Submarine" is their fun songs. The voice-over of the characters was in fact, dubbed by other artists. The band's other three movies were "A Hard Day's Night," "Help!" and "Magical Mystery Tour."

Beatles at 60

The famous English band is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Paul McCartney, in a conversation with Howard Stern on his radio show on April 14, discussed the highly-anticipated upcoming documentary, "The Beatles: Get Back." The film, directed by Peter Jackson, features 54 hours of film unseen footages from behind-the-scenes of the 1969 movie "Let It Be." The raw footage presents the "Let It Be" sessions in a different light. It was known then that McCartney and Lennon were "rivals," but in the documentary film, McCartney revealed that "We're obviously having fun together." He further said they had respect for each other in the footages and "we're making music together."

"The Beatles: Get Back" movie is expected to be released in the cinemas on September 4, but that remains to be seen due to the ongoing pandemic caused by the coronavirus. Sir Paul though assured that "it will come out" eventually.
