Unfortunately, no. At least not yet. The cancellation of Mort due to copyright issues was very recent (last week), so perhaps Musker & Clements will pitch something else to Lasseter soon and hopefully they'll still want to do another hand-drawn feature.

I have to say: THANK GOD! Mort isn't Disney's type/style. I understand that Disney has done mature things like voodoo and lust, but this would be too dark.

What?!?! But that's not fair!!! Disney's cheating us even further! As if the announcement of Enchanted II not happening wasn't enough of a disappointment, Disney screws us over even farther by canceling Mort. At this rate, they're not gonna do ANY hand-drawn movies. :(

I'm not too annoyed that they're not making Enchanted II, as much as I love the firs one. I feel that story is pretty much done.

And honestly, we don't know how many projects Disney has in development as some could be hand-drawn for all we know. Even since the Bug's Life days, projects under John Lasseter's command are pretty much kept under tight wraps. Need I remind you we only know about three upcoming Pixar features (one of which is set to be released in three months).

Still, kudos on using the blue saddie face from now on. It's a lot more pleasant to look at than that other one you were using that got frequently annoying.

Can I ask, how reliable is this blog? Because when it apparently went back into production, I'm sure that it was reported that King of the Elves was hand-drawn.

On a side note, I couldn't help laughing when I read this post on the blog:

"The only place I've seen direct "Lasseter hate" is on Disney "fan-forums." It seems those that are hardcore nuts for classic Walt films are not big fans of Lasseter. Which doesn't really make sense to me."

For some reason, I can't help but think that whoever posted that has seen some of the things posted on this site in recent weeks.

With the cancellation of Mort and the recent success of Tangled, maybe they’ll give TSQ a chance. The only reason it seemed to get cancelled was because it was a hand-drawn fairy tale, and TP&TF hadn't performed as well as hoped. Now that they've seen fairy tales can still be lucrative, maybe they'll give it another chance.

I only want them to go back to that if it’s going to be hand-drawn though. Unlike the Rapunzel tale, I really like that story.

(Note: I'm not saying they should do only hand-drawn, fairy tale films. I'm looking forward to Reboot Ralph because the story sounds interesting and CG will likely gel well with it, and I had thought Mort would be a really fun film a la Aladdin or Hercules despite having non-classic literary origins. Plus, Tangled clearly worked in CG. I just don't want them to avoid hand-drawn, fairy tale films for the sake of it either. )

So is "King of Elves" back on? Last I hear I thought it was shelved. That's probably the only one outta the bunch I'm looking for to now.

You know, I was in an art museum today and saw a statue of Don Quixote and instantly thought, "that would make a great hand drawn Disney animated film!"

Anyway, I hope "King of the Elves" is good. The brief story for it that I've read sounds promising. No matter if it is hand drawn or not, I hope they get some more hand drawn films in the pipe line soon!

I think it's pretty reliable despite the "anonymous" comments. A recent example was the news of the cancellation of "The Snow Queen" and "Newt". Actually, the report that King of Elves after going back into production was going to be hand-drawn was a rumour that was not posted on TAG blog but on the site Progress City, USA, something that was debunked by a lot of "anonymous" posters at the TAG blog.

Regarding the slate I've put up, that was confirmed by Steve Hulett, the admin. of the TAG blog, who is the animation union rep. and has access to the studio as well as the directors themselves in interviews (Greno & Howard, and Dean Wellins confirmed that they are developing feature-length films).

Yeah, I've read that too and I couldn't help but think that it is probably someone who frequents this forum.

Yes, it was confirmed by Blue Sky Disney and later by Steve Hulett who is the animation union rep and has access to the studio.

Quote:
In between talking on the phone, plowing through e-mails (and all the other business reppy things that I do, I found my way to the Hat Building in Burbank.

I spent most of my time in the story department. Presently, King of the Elves is in script development and board artists are waiting to see pages.

"The new take on Elves is solid, and the story is shaping up. ..."


The new director is Chris Williams, the co-director of Bolt, who replaced the previous directors Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker.

Disney did try attempt at it. The exec scrap it after finding it too dark and disturbing after looking at the concept arts.

I also saw that and was thinking the exact same thing.

Well, I'd be more insulted if "Enchanted 2" actually happened, but Mort? That was actually a creative concept.

And if Winnie the Pooh is succesful, they will announce projects.

And just to be sure it is, I demand everyone here to see it at least six times.

Considering its cheap budget and Winnie the Pooh is (I think) more popular in his home country, I imagine it will make its money back before the movie even reaches North America.

^While I see your point about Pooh being (german?), It's an american-made film(with british actor(s)) and I doubt it will open anywhere else before NA.

Winnie the Pooh is British and Disney is planning on releasing it in Europe in April, three months before its North American premiere.

Paramount is employing a similar strategy for The Adventures of Tintin by releasing it in Europe (where the Belgain character is more popular and well-known) two months before North America gets it. This is to help generate buzz and get Americans more excited about seeing a globe-trotting Belgain reporter.

I understand where Paramount and Disney are coming from here.
