Princess of Mars book

During the 1990s, Jeffrey Katzenberg had attempted to produce an animated adaptation of the novel.[1] After he had disapproved of Ron Clements and John Musker's pitch for Treasure Planet, Katzenberg instead offered them to direct A Princess of Mars. However, the directors were uninterested,[2] and Disney relinquished the film rights to Paramount Pictures in 2002.[3] (Despite the public domain status of the original novel.)

Eventually, Walt Disney Pictures would renew the rights to A Princess of Mars and title it John Carter which would be released in 2012.
