Netflix Is Turning Paul McCartney’s Kids Book Into an Animated Movie

Netflix has just announced that it is adapting Paul McCartney’s kids book High in the Clouds for a new animated film.

Originally published in 2005, High in the Clouds is a kids adventure novel penned by the Beatles star along with co-authors Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh. The novel follows the story of a teen squirrel who gets mixed up with a gang of rebellious squirrels living in the clouds.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Netflix,” said McCartney in a statement. “They complement what is already an amazing team with Gaumont and we can think of no-one better to be working with to bring our film to a global audience. I’ve always loved animated films and this is a hugely important passion project for me. I can’t wait for the world to see it.”

No word yet on when the new movie will debut on Netflix as it’s still in the early stages, but Paul McCartney is signed on as a producer and will be writing and recording original songs for the film. McCartney also recently published a children’s picture book Hey, Grandude.
