There's been so much misinformation out there on this one, I have no idea what is going on. I do know this. People are constantly confusing Dreamworks SKG, the former movie studio which Paramount bought, and Dreamworks Animation, an independent company unrelated to Paramount. Sometime back Dreamworks SKG spun off Dreamworks Animation as a seperate entity, and it operates outside of any decisions Dreamworks SKG makes. Now that Dreamworks SKG is part of Paramount, it operates how Paramount wants it to operate. Dreamworks Animation is under no such obligation, eventhough they once were related. Plus, I often see the term Dreamworks used for both entities, and sometimes I'm not sure who it's refering to.
The original article saying Bee Movie was cancelled just linked to another article. And that article didn't really say anything about Bee Movie being cancelled at first. However, it was later updated to include a supposed phone call to Dreamworks Animation. Still, no official announcement has been made. And given the release is so close, I could see anything happening. Who really knows?
