    Hey all, hope you enjoy Part 2 exploring The Abandoned & Cancelled Disney animations! Similar to what I posted in Part 1, in order to best avoid too many “You forgot about…” comments, I thought I’d quickly share the criteria I used to build this episode:

    1. Had to be a FEATURE LENGTH animated film, as the list of shorts would require an entire series of its own.

    2. Only films that will never see the light of day and that aren’t currently in the works for an alternate version, or were simply reworked into a similar film aside from 1 or 2 exceptions where the story is particularly interesting and rich with history.

    3. Also keep in mind that some "cancelled" Disney Feature Animations just don't have enough history or available visuals to tell a proper story, I include a few quick ones near the end as a "bonus", but some films are just as simple as "Disney almost made (insert here) film...and they didn't", which aren't the stories I am particularly interested in telling, as plenty of "list/top 10" videos have already done that.

    18:25 ok so we’re not gonna talk about how disturbing this is? It’s a whole scene about (Chicken’s? Ostriches?) being chopped up and turned into meat! Holy shit, thank god Dumbo 2 was cancelled

    Disney: We chose to develop Chicken little over A few good ghosts due to it having stronger appeal with audiences

    me: you chose poorly

    Even as a kid I despised chicken little and now I’m really really sad that we got that over something that sounded super cute and interesting

    I like The Emperor’s New Groove but I really really really really wish we had Kingdom of the Sun instead. It would’ve been a better movie. I hope one day disney decides to recreate Kingdom of the Sun.

    Downvoted, only because the Wildlife quote was NOT that bad (for 2019) and was NOT "easily found on the internet"...

    I kind of like the idea of the kingdom of the sun movie, it seems really interesting. But I’m still happy that they still made emperors new groove, I just hope that they still try doing this, maybe rearrange the plot. Also the my peoples movie looked so cute, sad that they decided to take it out; maybe a Disney animator could make it into some sort of short film. But with Disney’s relentless shoot out of unneeded live action movies, that probably won’t happen anytime soon

    Has anyone noticed the pattern Disney keeps shutting down things that could be good to run stuff that sucks.
