You've never heard of it?
It was also called "A Few Good Ghosts"
The idea for My Peoples grew out of Barry Cook's interest in American folk art. The co-director of Mulan, Cook imagined a tale of star-crossed lovers set in Appalachia in the late 1940s. Old Man McGee swears to keep his daughter Rose away from Elgin Harper because of an old feud and the superstition that 'bad things happen' when Harpers and McGees get together. The 'Peoples,' folk-art characters Elgin crafts from found objects, come to life to bring the young lovers together.
"A Few Good Ghosts," which mixed traditional and computer-generated animation, had already gone through a number of title changes -- including "My Peoples" and "Angel and Her No Good Sister" -- and was being directed by Barry Cook, one of the directors of 1998's "Mulan." Set to a bluegrass score, it revolved around a group of ghosts inhabiting folk-art dolls. Its voice cast included Hal Holbrook, Dolly Parton and Lily Tomlin.
The project fell victim to creative differences, with a Disney representative saying Friday the studio had decided it was not "universally appealing." According to Disney, the studio has not yet determined whether the production's shutdown will lead to layoffs at its Orlando facility, responsible for such features as "Lilo & Stitch" and "Brother Bear." Further decisions are expected by January.
