Re: What if John Lennon was the creator of Code Lyoko ?

2D/3D animated reboot (1999 theatrical film and 2000-03 sequel TV series)

Code Lyoko (1999)
Production
After Code Lyoko Godzilla's release, John Lennon wants to restart the project that makes him more famous then before. With animation experience from Rugrats and after watching some Pixar's shorts, he decides to product and direct an animated remake. Pre-production starts in 1992, with Lightstorm Entertainment and Hanna-Barbera as producers and Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures as distributors. Paul Verhoeven serves as writer and producer. However, there is no CGI studio who is interested in the movie, especially since Pixar joins up Disney for Toy Story. Production is putted on hiatus in 1993. But in 1994 (the next year), DreamWorks SKG is founded. Its founders Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen are hiring Lennon as their first president. John then restarts the production. Spielberg and Katzenberg both join him and DreamWorks, Amblin Entertainment and Nickelodeon Movies are added to production companies. The film's release is scheduled for Christmas 1998. DreamWorks bought 40% of Pacific Data Images.
...
John moves the production in France, because of his knowledge of future. He meets Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo, 20-year old animator students who both created Les enfants font leur cinéma short movies, which characters' design have been inspired on Code Lyoko's stars. He also hires French animation studios Antefilms and France Animation to create animation for the movie, but the results are disappointing John, because they are not more design then Season 1-like graphics. Pacific Data Images then completes the CGI graphics, who looks like Season 2 after it, while Antefilms and France Animation take 1 year to polish characters' 2D look, to get Season 3 and 4-like designs.
...
John Lennon and Sarah Halley Finn start the voice casting in 1997. Leonardo DiCaprio is hired to voice Ulrich Stern, but after recording 20% of Ulrich's dialogue, John isn't convinced by DiCaprio's voice, which sounds a bit too young for the character's stature. John dismisses DiCaprio and then hires Casper Van Dien, who portrays Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers. After recording 5% of Ulrich's dialogue for testing, John is convinced. For Yumi Ishiyama, John doesn't consider necessary to hire a Japanese or even Asian actress to voice her. John auditionned Denise Richards, wanting Patrick Muldoon to voice William Dunbar in the series, to recreate Johnny-Carmen-Zander love triangle in Starship Troopers, but he finally leaves off this idea. Finally, Yumi Ishiyama's voice is Neve Campbell, who would appear alongside Denise Richards in Wild Things the next year. Odd Della Robbia's voice was supposed to be Paul Walker, but John prefers Macaulay Culkin. Jeremy and Aelita are both voiced by Hayden Christensen and Kate Winslet. Anna Faris is the only choice for Sissi Delmas' voice. Jim Moralès and J-P Delmas were supposed to be voiced by J.K. Simmons and Bryan Cranston respectively, but their voice are finally Mike Myers and Armand Assante. For the series, William Dunbar would be voiced by Keanu Reeves after the latter's performance in Matrix.
...
Animation is completed very fast because of a huge crew. Vocal recording takes place from August to December 1998, after actors get coached by Jean Reno and Gérard Depardieu to speak all with a French accent. Release date is delayed to June 1999, but John decides to avoid competition with The Phantom Menace and delayes again the date to October 9th 1999, his own birthday and also the day when the plot starts.
...
The MPAA rated the film PG-13 because of intense violence, language and some mature elements. After being re-edited, it gets a PG rating.

Code Lyoko's second installment (1977)
Plot
While Jeremie searches for Aelita's human memory in Lyoko, Ulrich is confronted with a relational problem since Yumi often hangs out with William Dunbar. At the same time, Odd and Sam meet Theo Gauthier (Jeff Goldblum) and his little sister Laura (Carrie Fisher). The first seduces Sissi but is in love with Yumi, the second seduces and loves Jeremiah. After a week of imbalance in love, Ulrich and Aelita, with Odd and Sam, bring their friends back to their senses with more or less success. As for XANA, it cooks a very ingenious plan.
...
During driving lessons, Ulrich and William fight to impress Yumi, especially as their respective parents are present. William passes the test while Ulrich fails miserably. Yumi then refuses to be William's girlfriend, pretending she was only hanging out with him out of friendship. But the pot-de-glue is not convinced and allows himself to insult Ulrich (He calls it "underside of moldy foreskin.") The samurai then inflicts a severe correction in front of everyone, despite the physical Herculean of his rival. The class officer (Jason Robards) then arrests Ulrich, but his father (Clint Eastwood), a former colonel of the Canadian Army, intervenes and releases him, having heard the insult swung by William. The latter then gets up, manages to tear the door of the vehicle and sends it on Ulrich. The latter dodges it and it is Milly who receives it on her stomach, causing her navel to bleed and sending her to hospital. The families of the rivals then point to the office of Jean-Pierre Delmas. In the face of Walter's strong arguments (Ulrich's father) and the whimsical attitude of the Dunbar, Ulrich is only stuck for 4 hours and William is suspended for 3 weeks for breaking equipment and hurting a student. However, shouts are heard, followed by an explosion. Ulrich looks out the window and then rushes out of the principal's office. XANA has materialized a Krabe in the real world and uses it to try to kill the Lyoko Warriors. Jeremy and Aelita go to the lab alone while Ulrich and Yumi try to neutralize the creature. William insists on helping the Lyoko warriors, only Odd lets him lend a hand. Jeremiah and Aelita arrive at the lab, but one of the scanners is destroyed because of the Krabe. Aelita must dive alone. Jeremy hurries as another Krabe comes out of the second scanner. The young elf lands when a third Krabe destroys the last scanner. She must turn off the tower without help and make a return to the past. She also wears a more modern combat outfit like the season 4's one, except it exposes her waist, including the navel and the abs.
...
Ulrich and Yumi head to Yumi's home as the second Krabe shows up. Odd and William take care of the first Krabe and destroy it by sending the car of the course to explode on him. Jim sees the third Krabe heading towards Place des Arts.
...
Aelita, hidden behind an iceberg, organizes her plan. Indeed, several Kankrelats block access to the tower. Jeremy sends him a motorcycle to a wheel he has just designed (The Overbike). The girl then rushes on the flock and avoids them painfully (Her belly get shot) before entering the tower and disables it, while Ulrich tries to protect Yumi and his family from the Krabe. The return to the past is started and brings the heroes back to Ulrich's turn. The latter then succeeds. William congratulates him surprisingly and offers him to join his bodybuilding club. The samurai accepts to Yumi's surprise.
...
Weeks later, Jeremy despairs to find the memory of Aelita in Lyoko, but discovers that his girlfriend has the keys to Lyoko, which allows to be free of the supercomputer and to walk in the global NCP, but the young girl ignores how to use it. He also discovers the existence of a fifth territory named "Carthage", which is located in the heart of Lyoko. As going back to her room, she feels a short pain in her belly. During her sleep, her navel became red and is poorly increasing temperature.
...
As Jeremy try to find her memory, Aelita kills the time at the pool. While she's swimming, she feels a diarrhea-like pain in her tummy and run to the bathroom. When she's there, the pain disappears and is replaced by a huge peristaltism. Her abs become red and her navel starts to bleed. She then faints because of pain. Something alive goes out of her navel and roars.
...
In the night, Aelita wakes up at the hospital, lied with her sister Milly. They are watching their bellies : they're all blue. Aelita turns suddenly sad and then rubs Milly's abs. She reveals what happens to her during the last summer and Lyoko's secret. Milly answers that she already know about Lyoko. They are hugging in love.
...
Meanwhile, Ulrich and Yumi walks to the hospital for visiting Aelita and Milly, but the japanese girl heards something strange. A creature then attacks her : it's a Rampant, which is the thing who's comes out of Aelita's navel at the pool. Ulrich try to take the Rampant off Yumi's waist/ribs, but the creature strangles him. William then arrives as he was going to visit Milly for apologizes, he helps Ulrich and Yumi to fight the rampant. William finally kill it as skewer its skull with a crowbar, after few and long minutes.

...
Shortly after, Ulrich and Yumi tell to Aelita what happens. The young elf is very worried and takes Milly's hand.
...
1 month later, Aelita gets back to McGill after being enough recovered. She and Milly are in the latter's room, both in bras and shorts, talking about their crush as rubbing each other's abs with lotion for a total recorver. William suddenly enters the room with a T800-like face. He knocks out the both sisters and grabs Aelita on his shoulder. Another William appears in frnt of him and gets scared, revealing that the first one is a polymorphic clone. The real William gets pushed to the wall while the fake William starts running to the factory.
...
The real William wakes out and fellow the lyoko-warriors to the factory. When they arrive, the clone has dissipated in metal parts it turns into a Terminator.

Yumi, like Aelita, see her waist being exposed, but oddly, she loves and enjoy to show her belly button to Ulrich, who's laughing because Yumi's passion is too much weird. Then, John Lennon appears as himself severly correcting Joan Lin that, in the screenplay, Yumi is not suppose to enjoy showing her tummy. He then puts out a paper board to marks his future movies' « 4th wall's breaks », who will became a recurring gag.

Re: What if John Lennon was the creator of Code Lyoko ?

First installment (1975)

Synopsis
In June 1975, Franz Hopper (John Lennon) and his daughter Aelita (Linda Hamilton) flee two officers from a top secret government agency looking for them. The father scientist takes him to his secret laboratory located under Expo 67. He records a video calling for help, saying that whoever reads this message must save the planet first. The duo descend in retractable cylinders, promising Aelita that they will be safe.
...
Three months later, Jérémie Belpois (John Travolta), a student at McGill University, realizes the disappearance of Aélita, who was his best friend. Milly (Jennifer Grey), Aélita's younger sister and a university reporter, tells her that she had gone home to their father in June, but disappeared soon after. She does not know where she is. Assisted by Ulrich Stern (Patrick Swayze), the eldest of the class and his best friend, they find the track of Aelita to the laboratory of Franz Hopper. Jeremy turns on the supercomputer, then off, under the authority of Ulrich. The computer turns on and Aelita appears on the screen. Believing first in a video game, the duo remarked with astonishment that the girl speaks to them as through a window and that it is indeed their missing friend. She has lost her memory, remembering only her name and her family.
...
On Lyoko, Aélita has the appearance of an elf in pink and green kimono. His arms and face are all exposed and dark pink. His neck adorns a curious symbol, the eye of XANA. Jeremy wonders what XANA is. The trio decides to resume their conversation tomorrow.
...
The next day, Ulrich badly supports his new roommate Odd Della Robbia (Michael Biehn), the cousin of Aelita and Milly he met the day before, because of the puerile and immature behavior of the latter. He's going on a penchak-silat course, taught by Jim Moralès (Jack Nicholson). An attractive Japanese girl, Yumi Ishiyama (Joan Lin Feng-Jiao), arrives. The two students follow a duel that Yumi wins. Ulrich, despite his shame, is seduced by the beauty of the girl and it seems reciprocal with her.
...
In the evening, Jeremy returns to the lab to talk with Aelita. In the meantime, Ulrich discovers his bed ravaged by a shih-tzu, Kiwi, belonging to Odd. However, he must find Jeremiah in the lab. The latter discovered the retractable cylinders, which are actually teleporter scanners that send any living thing on Lyoko. He concludes that Aelita has come to the virtual world with this device and suggests testing the machine to ensure that she can send a person to meet Aelita. Ulrich offers to use Kiwi, especially for revenge.
...
While taking the dog, Ulrich is spotted by Odd after a canine bark. Sissi Delmas (Kim Basinger), who wanted to see Ulrich and was wearing a bra and a skirt to conquer him, finds himself involved in Ulrich's pursuit by Odd, the latter falling on Sissi, hands on the belly of the girl who blushes. She helps Odd hunt down Ulrich without understanding the situation. The hunted arrives in time and places the animal in a scanner. Jeremy then activates the process of virtualization, but Odd arrives, pushes Ulrich and leaves Kiwi machine, but the scanner is closed and Odd is invaded by a blinding light. Shortly after, he falls into a coniferous forest and sees himself dressed in a mauve slinky suit with ears and a cat's tail and feline paws for hands. Jeremy's voice is heard, the latter communicating with a microphone connected to the supercomputer. The genius explains that the computer automatically provides the virtual dress to the person sent according to his dreams. The explanation is quickly interrupted by a laser beam that passes close to hit Odd. Then comes a deadly patrol boat, a 2 meter robot with two assault pump rifles as arms and a plasma gun on the shoulder, which Odd will call tanks. Ulrich is sent in reinforcement. He sees himself as a samurai in a yellow-fitting suit and equipped with a retractable katana, which will soon be nicknamed "lightsaber". The young Pesilat comes to Odd's rescue and destroys the robot. However, creatures with spider legs and octopus heads pop up and open fire at the duo that flees towards a large white cylindrical tower. Odd will call them "Kankrelats". They enter but fall into a digital tunnel that leads them to a new territory by another tower. The territory in question consists of pack ice and ice and the sky is at night. New creatures, cubes with paws, arrive and destroy the duo with their lasers. Odd will call them "Blocks". Sissi, panicked, goes back and discovers Jeremy suspended by electric cables possessed. Ulrich and Odd take out scanners, having only been devirtualized, and neutralize the cables by intermingling them, causing them to be electrocuted themselves. Sissi, terrorized by the events, massages her own midriff and wants explanations.
...
The next day, the quartet discusses Lyoko. Jeremy explains that Aelita is more at risk for monster attacks, due to the temporary shutdown of the computer. Devirtualization then represents a definite death for the young elf. Ulrich proposes to turn off the machine, but Jeremy refuses and prefers to find a solution to save Aelita. Because of a vine from Odd, Jeremy accidentally confesses that he fell in love with Aelita. Ulrich defends him and says he knows the same thing for another girl, Sissi getting excited. Jeremy announces that everyone, except him, will go to Lyoko the same evening. Sissi agrees as long as she goes to belly dance classes with other girls.
...
Sissi makes her abs dance, supervised by Jim. She returns to change but is followed by Nicolas Poliakoff (Bill Murray) and Herb Pichon (Joe Pantoliano), two real uglies who admire her physical beauty. She closes the door in her face and removes her top. Suddenly, a luminous sphere emerges from the electrical outlet. Sissi, in bra and skirt dancer, sees the sphere penetrate into her abdomen and receives a very brutal electric shock, which fails to kill her. Nicolas and Hervé break down the door, alarmed by the cries, and discover a dying Sissi, her belly is completely burned.
...
Informed by some students on the campus, Ulrich, who returns from a second duel against Yumi, won by the samurai, takes the latter and the others to the lab, taking things in hand. Jérémie is now sending and guiding the team on Lyoko. Yumi then becomes a warrior geisha. She wears a black-red kimono and a yellow belt, with white trousers. It is armed with two sharp fans like razor blades and launching like shurikens or boomerangs. The trio then meets Aelita, whom Odd confesses to recognize him an incredible beauty. Yumi is very protective of her, while Ulrich organizes their battle plan which is to bring Aelita to a red tower that would handle any attack on Earth and that the elf is the only one able to disable.
...
In the meantime, Sissi is recovering uncomfortably from the incident. His father Jean-Pierre (Paul Newman), then director of the university, flatters his belly burnt. In pain and panic, she breaks the group's promise to keep Lyoko secret and informs her father and Jim of the existence of the supercomputer. Back on Lyoko, Ulrich, Odd and Yumi fight bravely to protect the young elf from the monsters. Ulrich is also seduced by Yumi's passion. However, a new monster, the Krabe, appears and creates trouble for the quartet. Ulrich succeeds in destroying it by planting his sword in the shell of the virtual crustacean. Odd discovers his power, which is to shoot plasma darts with his wrists. He will call this power "Laser arrows". The trio destroys the monsters and Aelita goes to the tower. She puts her hand on the interface and turns off the tower, erasing the electrical sphere that had returned and attacking the campus. As the trio returns from Lyoko, Sissi arrives with her father and Jim. J-P discovers the threat that the supercomputer represents and implores Jeremy to extinguish it, ignoring the existence of Aelita. Sissi, seeing Yumi's presence as Ulrich's betrayal, encourages his father's opinion. Ulrich treats her violently as a dirty traitor. Jeremy refuses to turn off the machine and starts a return to the past.
...
12 hours earlier, the trio is found and looks for Jeremy. Once found, the latter does not understand why Ulrich is no longer the only one to know the existence of Lyoko and Aelita. He recontacts the latter which confirms the words of the trio. It must therefore immunize itself from temporal returns. Aelita asks her to forget it and turn off the computer, noting the significant threat the machine poses to not only the city of Montreal, but the whole planet. Jeremy refuses and replies "A world without you is not one. ". As the elf insists, the genie cracks and declares his feelings for her. The girl is moved and then shed a tear to the surprise of his friends. While Ulrich and Odd already wanted to continue, Yumi finally agrees to help the gang and tells Aelita that she is like a little sister to her. The four students leave the room, but Sissi, affected by the return to the past, scolds Ulrich for failing to report to his room. The latter sends him a finger of honor and threatens to not reappear in their field of vision.
...
One month follows the assembly of the Lyoko Warriors. Jeremy discovers that the monsters and attacks are works of XANA, a multi-agent program residing in the supercomputer. On Halloween, a new student, Samantha Knight (Angela Bassett), arrives at the campus. Odd is immediately in love with her and it seems reciprocal. Meanwhile, Ulrich and Yumi prepare the hall for the Halloween ball when Sissi, now flanked by Hervé and Nicolas, severely insults the young Milly, hinting that she attracts no one. Ulrich can not help when she asks him to be his rider, because he has already invited Yumi and they are too old. She runs to the dormitory crying. As for Jeremy, he is making excellent progress. After materializing a hair of Aelita, he finds the official key of materialization of the young pink-haired elf when Odd accidentally escapes chocolates on his keyboard.
...
Odd surprises Sam with poking computer equipment into the science classroom. All of a sudden, the door closes and locks, enclosing Sam in the room. In the refectory, Yumi sees his glass break in his hand, causing a small but bloody cut. Ulrich disinfects the wound and puts on the bandage. The sweetness of the beautiful boy moves the young geisha who confesses his feelings for him. Ulrich is on the verge of kissing her, but Kiwi begins to sink and the window explodes. Plus, Milly's Teddy Bear disappears.
...
Sissi is in bra and thong in her room when its effects begin to fall off the shelf. Finally, the Teddy Bear appears, owned by XANA and in full metamorphosis, and jumps on Sissi, who ends up beaten by the teddy bear. Tamiya Diop (Lorraine Toussaint), the best friend and roommate of Milly, photographs the plague chamber when the campus, including the hall in the middle of the festival, begins to tremble. Odd manages to get Sam out of the room when the ceiling begins to fall. Odd takes his girlfriend to the lab to hope for his support. Jeremiah and Aelita discover that XANA is taking it hard: he has owned and transformed Milly's Teddy bear into a giant 25-meter-high bear and has begun to emit powerful ultrasounds to destroy the campus and kill the lyokos. warriors.
...
Ulrich and Yumi evacuate the room while Odd returns to college to evacuate the dormitories. The two pesilats then fight the imposing teddy bear and succeed after many prowess to cut his throat, which neutralizes it. Odd is however trapped with Milly and Tamiya in the dormitories when the upper floor opens on the lower floor. Sam comes back and helps them out. We learn that Sam and Tamiya are sisters, which brings Odd to include the journalists in their group. For their part, Ulrich and Yumi meet Jim who is fighting against Kankrelats. They take him to the lab to get strong hands. However, Sissi remains stuck under the debris of the campus. William Dunbar (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a student secretly in love with Yumi, rescues her after meeting Odd and providing help.
...
Jeremy virtualizes the trio on Lyoko while Jim, Sam and the reporters protect the entrance. However, XANA remains active and takes possession of the four bulldozers destined for the future renovation of the gymnasium to direct them to the lab to destroy the equipment that is harmful to it. Ulrich and his friends then land in the middle of a desert with canyons and holes. They find Aelita, but two metal spheres move towards them and stop to open. A laser discharge is then projected against them. Yumi uses telekinesis to drop a big rock on a mega-tank, nickname by Odd. The latter discovers his anticipation flashes, he sees Aelita fall into a hole. On Earth, Jim and the others see the bulldozers and throw pieces of rocks and metals to slow them down, without success. On Lyoko, Aelita receives a sharp belly in the belly and falls into the hole, but Odd catches her by the narrow margin. Yumi removes the stone from Aélita's belly, which does not bleed. The young elf, however, lost 10 life. The other megatank arrives and pursues them in a tunnel that leads to a passing tower taken by the activated tower. Jeremiah discovers however that it leads to the territory to the activated tower. Aelita goes there with Odd. Ulrich and Yumi must watch the tower that lets anything go, even the monsters. On Earth, Jim climbs a bulldozer to extinguish it, but to no avail. The mechanical troop destroys the pavilions hiding the entrance to the lab. On Lyoko, Yumi gets a shot in the belly of a new monster, a humanoid metal endoskeleton that Ulrich, and not Odd, calls "Terminator". The latter drops his rifle and opts for a hand-to-hand combat. Ulrich is then thrown against a rock and Yumi is fatally wounded in the belly by the brutally brutal fists of the robot. Ulrich gets up, mad with rage, and sends the Terminator into the digital sea, the ocean that Lyoko underpins and represents the TCP/IP (ancestor of the Internet). Yumi is weakly recovering from her abdominal aggression, having lost 60 life. Ulrich hugs her and then ... kisses her tenderly on the lips.
...
Odd and Aelita arrive at the forest but there is a big problem. Ultrasound has disrupted Aélita's materialization process. If it turns off the tower, it will evaporate and so will die. Aelita learns and thinks quickly, but finally resolves to save humanity. Odd destroys monsters until devirtualized. Aelita, however, manages to disable the tower, then dissipates peacefully. Jeremy cries for his beloved. Jim and Sam go to the scanners, being the only official volunteers to continue the adventure before the genius launches back to the past.
...
Ulrich, encouraged by Yumi, agrees to be Milly's rider and Sissi back, claiming she does not have enough brains to go out with him. In the lab, Jeremiah realizes that he still has Aelita's hair and that the process of materialization is intact. He informs the band, including Jim and Sam, and starts the proceedings. Aélita landed in a scanner, warmly welcomed by Jeremy and the band. However, he discovers that XANA has stolen Aeleita's human memory, which has tied her to the computer. Jeremy kisses Aelita and then starts repairing the superscan, a device that will spot the activated turns and allow the young elf to stay on Earth.

Critical reception
The film receives critical acclaim. Reviews praised its visual effects, acting, direction, screenplay, action and score. On Rotten Tomatoes, there are 100% positive reviews on 59 different reviews. Code Lyoko is considered to be the best film of 1975 with Jaws. Several critics say that the film is ahead of its time. However, George Lucas, a friend of Steven Spielberg, accused John Lennon of plagiarism. Lucas was working at the time on a pre-production film called "Star Wars", featuring lightsabers similar to that of Ulrich Stern, then the main weapons of Star Wars protagonists. Lennon, to ease tensions, asked Lucas the year he began his project. The latter replied that he had his first ideas in 1972. Lennon reluctantly replied that he had the idea of ​​Code Lyoko in 1966. So Star Wars is canceled, but Lennon asks him to continue his project and proposes that the lightsabers of Star Wars do not link with those of Code Lyoko. Lucas accepts despite the lack of credibility that Lennon does perceive. After the release of Star Wars, Lennon will repeatedly explain his agreement, but the opinions of fans remain ambiguous rather than official. Lucas changes the name of the weapon to "sabrolaser" (in french) to his universe, despite the French doublers continuing to say "lightsaber" (Sabre laser). The ambiguity only lasts a few months and fans of both franchises are now accustomed to the use of the weapon in two different worlds. However, and quickly, Spielberg proposed that Code Lyoko and Star Wars are common universes, the second being derived. John and Lucas accept this idea.
...
The film concludes the Quiet Revolution of Quebec and is a major representative of New Hollywood.

Box-office
Code Lyoko is a phenomenal success, with gross gross receipts of US $ 774 million at the global box office. He became the first film to win more than 700 million worldwide box office and remained the most lucrative film of all time until 1977 by the release of his sequel. Despite his great satisfaction with the recipes, John Lennon said the film would have had slightly more revenue if it had been released earlier in the summer, but Steven Spielberg's Jaws deserved, according to the Beatle, to be a success . Especially since John Lennon met Steven Spielberg and other New Hollywood filmmakers (Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, George Lucas, Dennis Hopper, etc.). He decided to let Jaws go out first and have box office success so as not to harm any of the two films (Jaws and Code Lyoko).

Code Lyoko receive a lot of awards at Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Saturn Awards and BAFTA.

June 2, 1967
While Sgt. Pepper's officially released in America, the Beatles learn that the record was listened to the day before at Expo 67 in Montreal. John chooses the same city to give the Beatles concert. The other three Beatles are rather reluctant, because Ringo was treated as a Jew by the Montrealer in 1964. Fortunately, Quebec is in full revolution, Tranquil and moreover, fascism is very badly seen by society. However, there is also the rise of Quebec nationalism, resulting in the promotion of French. A British band performing in Quebec would then cool the subject, even if in France, anglophone groups were accepted, including Beatles 2 years earlier. John then asks Brian Epstein, their manager, to send a telegram to Jean Drapeau, the mayor of Montreal at the time, to tell him and his people.

June 3, 1967
Jean Drapeau receives the telegram. He discusses with some politicians to know how to proceed to the proposal of the Beatles. Indeed, the telegram specifies that the band has stopped the tours because of the events of the fair sex that cover their music. We must also take into account the incidents of the previous American tour, some fans have misunderstood about John on Jesus despite the accuracy.

June 4, 1967
Jean Drapeau summons the people of Montreal to Jarry Park for their opinion on the eventual coming of the Beatles in Montreal. The effect is immediate. 98% of Montrealers want to see the Beatles at home. Of this 98%, 73% are Francophones.

The Beatles play at the Place des Nations, protected and insured by a monster security. Indeed, the soldiers of the army are gathered around the public, political personalities (Jean Drapeau, Charles de Gaulle, Elizabeth II, Lyndon B. Johnson, Daniel Johnson, Jackie Kennedy, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, etc.) whereas several Police are mobilized in the stands, where the fans sit. During the concert, the fans are irritated by the blinking warning to shout during the songs and scream loudly to make their voice heard screaming. George begins to get bored in the middle of the show but agrees to play one last song. However, during the same song, a fan manages to escape the security and speed towards the stage. Drapeau, informed of the Beatles that all admirers have tried to stage, that the non-lethal cartridges are issued, so that their message is transmitted to the Beatlemania and they are interrupted during concerts. The groupie has actually got a non-lethal bullet on the leg. The show was interrupted, the boys having had the jump. Many people are frightened by the girl who is suffering. At the end of 30 minutes, while the groupie is transported to the hospital and it is announced that it is not blessed, the concert resumes with the songs and sweet and this time, no scream. The hysteria of Beatlemania is now over. Later, John succeeds in reproducing the song Tomorrow never knows on stage. In fact, he is content to manipulate a sound table containing the song. The concert is filmed and recorded. The recording will be released at the 1968 New Year as a live album under the title The Beatles: Live at Expo 67 (The Beatles: Vive le Québec libre! In Quebec, The Beatles in Montreal in international French). The title And your bird can sing is not there, for an obvious reason. The video will become a special film broadcast on April 28, 1968, one day after Expo 67, on Radio-Québec. And Your Can Sing Bird, explain what happened. At the end of the concert, John pronounces the French word and announces that he is already subject to Quebec deserves all it takes for it to be England, in the same way as the United Kingdom, France, the States United States, Germany and Canada. He yells (in french) "Long live free Quebec! And "Quebec French Forever !!! That caused the euphoria in the crowd while the other three Beatles remain silent, too worried about the consequences they want to return to England.

August 31, 1967
The Beatles leave Expo 67 with good memories. Before leaving, John informs Drapeau that Montreal will have a baseball team in 1969 and summer Olympics in 1976.
