Did a bit of sleuthing and found this WogBlog post looking back at his animated projects, with YouTube links to films not included in this animation collection and a link to his Golden Globes appearance (with a very funny joke) . I wonder if the animated feature is still happening.

I wonder if the animated feature is still happening.

And yes it is:

From Daily Variety: an animated film based on Paul's children's book High in the Clouds is set for a 2015 release.

Paul McCartney’s children’s book “High in the Clouds” is being developed as an animated movie with former New Line toppers Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye producing through their Unique Features banner with RGH Entertainment.

The film will be released in 3D in 2015. The book — which centers on a squirrel’s quest to find a fabled animal sanctuary called Animalia — is written by McCartney, Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh.

McCartney will compose several original songs for the film. Tony Bancroft, whose credits include “Mulan,” will direct the feature from a screenplay by Josh Klausner (“Shrek Forever After”). Evolution will spearhead the global licensing and merchandising campaign for the film.

More on Paul's animated film project:

Paul McCartney is back, in a big way. I can tell you EXCLUSIVELY that while Sir Paul was recuperating from his recent illness he moved plans forward for his animated film. I told you about this project almost exactly three years ago.

Since then, a couple of things have happened. I’m told that producers Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye have received a finished script that everyone’s happy with.

Second: Offers are out to directors, and one will be named before the end of the summer. Originally, Tony Bancroft (“Mulan”) was rumored, but he may not be the choice after all.

Is the 2015 release date (see post #4) still the target or will it be after that considering that its been on the back-burner for a few years?

If they just got an approved script, there's no way it's going to be fully animated in a year.

Article on Paul approaching a female music star for "High in the Clouds." There's an audio clip. I think he coughs "Gaga," but hear for yourself.
