The website is still up, now saying 'coming soon' instead of '2015'.

The latest we've heard of it was in September when Ian Dowes on Licensing.biz stated it was in 'early stages'.

And did the announced (in January) February industry launch of the Bananaman stage musical actually happen?

Plus, moviewise, three and a half years on, I wonder if there's been any movement in the development of "US$25m epic live-action drama adapted from Raven on the Wing, the 1960s British comic strip."

$25m? Is that all? Heavens, it would take three times that amount to prise him away from Highboro in this day and age! And then there would be his wages. Looking on the bright side at least the buying club would save on the cost his football boots. :lol:

If that was the case the website would have been taken down, not updated. There must have been a delay of some sort.

according to den of geek earlier this year the movie is instead going to be a stage musical instead of a movie.

They said 'it looks like it's migrated'. I think the stage musical is happening as well as the movie - as the website is still up.

The Bananaman musical's Twitter page is here - https://twitter.com/BananamanShow

It seems to have completed as they stated they had an 'industry launch'. Which I think means they are trying to sell it to investors now.
