Rolling Stones Get Animated With "Ruby Tuesday"

by | March 19, 2007 | Comments

Back in the psychedelic ’60s, The Beatles got animated for the film "Yellow Submarine." Four decades later, it’s the competition’s turn. The Rolling Stones have licensed 12 of their songs for an animated film to be produced by Luc Besson, who is on an animation kick since "Arthur and the Invisibles."

"We did another animated film called Ruby Tuesday with the Rolling Stones," he said.

Unlike "Yellow Submarine," the Stones are not characters in this film. Their song will just provide the musical interludes. Eat your heart out Elton John, Alan Menken, Phil Collins and all the other Disney regulars.

"It’s an animated film with 12 songs of the Rolling Stones," said Besson. It’s going to be great."

Per IMDB, "Ruby Tuesday" is about a "single mother in New York looking for happiness" and is currently filming. At the helm are French animation brothers Gaetan and Paul Brizzi ("DuckTales: The Movie," "Fantasia/2000").
