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 trippy 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 will 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.
