Netflix and Gaumont announced their joint production of a new animated feature film based on the popular children's adventure novel "High In The Clouds," written by Paul McCartney, Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh.

Oscar-nominee Timothy Reckart will be the director of the film, which is being created and produced by McCartney.

Original songs and music also are being written by the 18-time Grammy award winner.

The animated adventure follows an imaginative teenage squirrel named Wirral, who finds himself pulled into a ramshackle gang of teenage rebels who live high in the clouds.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Netflix. 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," McCartney said.
