McCartney will produce the film and write the songs for the soundtrack.
The action follows Wirral, a squirrel, adolescent male who wakes up attracted to a rebel gang. Incidentally, he opposes the Gretsch owl, a despotic leader who steals anyone’s voice against him.
Timothy Reckart will direct from a screenplay written by Jon Crocker (“Paddington,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”).
Producers are credited with Bob Shaye (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy), the late Michael Lynne, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian (Gaumont).
The “High in the Clouds” project was initiated by McCartney with Shaye and Lynne in 2013.

In 2012, the British received the Legion of Honor from the President of France, Francois Hollande. The British artist was named Knight of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, in whose honor she sang, in front of tens of thousands of spectators, at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
The latest album, “Egypt Station”, was released in September 2018.
