Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Sam & Max is an unproduced animated feature film adaptation of the media franchise of the same name created by Steve Purcell. It would have been produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.



Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. As brought up in several interviews, Steve Purcell believed that Pixar's style would not suit Sam & Max's more edgy tone well at all and didn't think they would suit each other well, wanting his Disney work and his own series to remain separate.
  2. Pixar does not do adaptations of other media.


  • Sam & Max would later receive remasters of the original Telltale trilogy and a VR game in the early 2020s.
  • Steve Purcell remained active at Pixar, with Sam & Max kept away from Disney and Pixar. He was later laid off in June 2023.
