Not to venture off-topic, but what is the "Jack" idea? I know about Reboot Ralph and Mort but I don't think I'd heard about Jack yet!
I slashed those two because Reboot Ralph had a different title way back, Jumpin' Jack or something. I couldn't remember, but I know it was J-something Jack.

Although didn't they consider Jack and the Beanstalk for a while? But it got axed because, I think, another studio is doing a version of the story.

I've loved the idea of King of the Elves since it was first announced to I hope that it is put into full production and made. The story and characters offer Disney the chance to do something unlike any animated film they've done before. Isn't the Snow Queen now back in some kind of script development or is it still cancelled?

There is a lot of talk going on about what comes after "Reboot Ralph" next year. Specifically, a good deal of talk about Chris Williams' "King of the Elves." I've received several e-mails asking me about the status of this project. A few have asked if it has been canceled.

I can say that as of a couple weeks ago, the project was right on schedule. So if it's been put into turnaround, then it has happened in the last week or so. I personally doubt it. From those Bothans that I've talked to, the project was moving steadily forward and was having no more story problems than any other project of its type. It has been doing so well in fact, that it was/is being considered for the Christmas holiday release for 2013.

Now, all that could change if Lasseter and Catmull find that story problems will make it impossible to have ready for that release date. As far as I know all is moving forward and Chris Williams' next effort should/could be out a year and a half after Ralph winds up rebooting.

“King of the Elves” is rearing its head again at Walt Disney Animation Studios, with “Horrible Bosses” scribe Michael Markowitz tapped to pen the latest script for the toon. Project is an adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story about a band of elves and one dwarf living in the Mississippi Delta who tap a human as their king after he saves them from an evil troll. Chris Williams, co-director and writer of “Bolt,” is shepherding the project.

The Mouse House originally wanted to produce the pic for a 2012 release, under the helm of Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker (both behind “Brother Bear”), but the project was put back into development to flesh out the story further shortly after Pixar’s John Lasseter took the reins of Disney’s toon division as chief creative officer in 2006.

With “Wreck-It-Ralph” now on Disney’s slate for Nov. 2, 2012, “King of the Elves” is being eyed for a holiday 2013 bow, after “Monsters University” aims to scare up box office that summer. Lasseter is producing the pic with Chuck Williams.

I've been hiking through the Hat Building for years, and I recall KOTE being in work more often than not. Board people working on it, designers noodling with it, etc. Elves has been in and out of the lineup so many times that I lose track. But glad to see that another pass is being made, although something tells me this is sort of old news.

I received an e-mail Thursday from a Disney staffer assigned to Elves. He said that he'd been working on the show for some time with Chris Williams, and he was surprised how wrong Variety's story was. They were acting as if something was new, and little was new.

Yay! That's awesome! When I read, "A few have asked if it has cancelled....", I was like, "You're joking, right???" Then, I read the rest of the article. So great that it's on the works. It's an handdrawn movie, right?

From what I remember, no... it's going to be CG.

Moving this over here...

Variety reports that Disney’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s short story King of the Elves is back on the cards with Horrible Bosses screenwriter Michael Markowitz set to take on writing duties.

http://www.thereelbits.com/2011/06/30/d ... the-elves/

Chris Williams, the co-director of Bolt, is now attached to the project, once in the hands of Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker, who both co-directed 2003′s Brother Bear.

Welcome Back Loomis...I'm sure albert/Escapay will be delighted your back...with the future of this site possibly ending before the end of the year...

Anyway...isn't King of the Elves going to be a Pixar movie? or Maybe I'm confusing it with Newt... :?

Yes, 'Newt' was Pixar, but that isn't back on (or possible off) the shelf yet.

So, since this is following up Wreck-It Ralph, will it be hand-drawn? Will certain animators be expecting a call any day now? Or is this just wishful thinking on my part?

It has been confirmed that the revived King of the Elves will remain CGI by Steve Hulett of the TAG blog who is the animation union rep and visits the studio regularly.

Apparently, WDAS is not planning on going ahead with their initial "plan" on having "one hand-drawn film every two years" after the disappointing box office results of The Princess and the Fog as there are currently no hand-drawn features in development.

I love the idea and the concept art, but I am saddened to learn that neither this nor The Snow Queen will be in 2D. They will both look great in 3D, but it would be nice to have one of them in 2D for some variety. I hope that Pooh does well, and convinces Disney that 2D is worth a try, but lets be realistic, it won't, not with the non existent marketing it's getting.

I'm really excited for this film and very happy that things are moving forward with it. I personally want more originality in the future and while this is an adaptation, the story itself is unlike any that Disney Animation has adapted before. I'm indifferent on how the film is animated, if it's CG, I don't mind, I just hope the film is good enough to continue the success Disney has had with Princess and the Frog and Tangled.

Okay. And frankly, if Winnie the Pooh turns out to be their final hand-drawn film, I don't mind. It sounds like a better way to close that legacy than Home on the Range was.
