The Beatles to reissue Magical Mystery Tour film

The Beatles are set to reissue their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour.

Released in the wake of the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour was The Beatles' third film and documents a psychedelic coach trip to the seaside.

Previously out of print, a fully restored edition of the film will be released on October 9 with a remixed soundtrack and special features, including scenes that were cut from the original, as well as interviews with the band and cast.

A special boxed deluxe edition will also include both the DVD and Blu-ray version of the film, as well as a 60-page book and 7" vinyl EP of the film's six new Beatles songs, which were originally issued in the UK to complement the film's 1967 release.

The film features a supporting cast including Ivor Cutler, comedy actors Victor Spinetti, Jessie Robins, Nat Jackley, Derek Royle and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

Magical Mystery Tour will also be released for the big screen, showing in cinemas from September 27. The British Film Institute have also announced a special screening at London's BFI Southbank on October 2.
