8 Interesting Disney Projects That Never Make It From The Shelves To The Big Screens

Walt Disney Animation Studios is known as the top of the ladder among film studios when it comes to making money. It’s the result of the development process for nearly a century, along with a series of famous films such as Frozen II ($1,450 billion), The Lion King ($1.083 billion), and Zootopia ($1.024 billion).

Making animated films was a detailed and laborious process. It could take 4 years, 5 years or even more than a decade. There are many projects that have to stop halfway for many different reasons. This is what Disney fears the most because it wastes a lot of money and effort. More than 65,000,000 assets are stored at the Walt Disney Animation Research Library. And the job of Disney filmmakers is to carefully and ingeniously select these assets for making new projects.

Of course, there is no success without a price. To get the best idea, thousands of ideas are offered and most are rejected for various reasons. The following are some of the Disney projects that never made it from the shelves to the big screens. Let us know which one is your favorite by scrolling down and leaving a comment.

The film carries the idea of ​​Death becoming a main character. This made Disney executives afraid about making movies. Aside from that, Disney was unable to acquire the film’s rights, therefore it was shelved.
