HBO to Develop Animated Feature with Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is no stranger to the animation world, having dabbled in various animated projects during his career, most notably the full length feature Yellow Submarine (1969). Now, there’s word that the former Beatle has just made a deal with HBO in order to develop an animated feature that showcases some of his solo songs, such as Mary Had a Little Lamb, and Silly Love Songs.

McCartney is also working with Bob Shaye and Michael Lynn of New Line and Unique Films fame for another animated feature based on his 2005 children’s book High in the Clouds, which focuses on a courageous squirrel named Wirral, who joins forces with a frog named Froggo in order to save his woodland home from the polluted Megatropolis.

McCartney also purchased the movie rights to the popular British comic strip Rupert Bear back in the 80s, in the hopes of making a full length animated feature. And while the project didn’t materialize, he was still able to deliver an animated short called Rupert and the Frog Song.
