In August of 2011, it was announced that a computer-animated film based off the 1985 fantasy novel book Tailchaser's Song by American author Tad Williams, was confirmed to be in sudden development.

LeFlore, and Susan Gee, co-executive producer included Michael Schwarz, co-producer included Yasumasa Kutami, and the executive producers include Peter Ramsey and Luca Scalisi. Additionally, Cat Shit One creator Motofumi Kobayashi was set to be a pre-producer on the film's producing slate. Filming was confirmed to start in Tokyo, Japan. The official announcement was made at Cannes, France.[1]


During the mid 2010's, there were talks about a film based off the novel Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams (mentioned earlier.) - the film itself was initially scheduled for a United States release sometime after 2018.[2]


A young orange tomcat named Fritti Tailchaser leaves the comfort of the world for a mysterious forest when the cat he cares for most, Hushpad, suddenly goes missing. Soon he discovers the secret world of cats, learns of his special heritage, and confronts an evil cat god.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The cancellation reasons are currently unknown. The only slight reason online was that according to Tad himself on a Facebook statement with a fan, who wanted ASAP answers to why the film was cancelled, Tad said in a reply "the film didn't quite come together and several circumstances stood out during and through production."


  • The film was silently cancelled.
  • Tailchaser's Song remains as a novel, with not a animation movie(s) at all.
  • International Digital Artists, the creative Japanese studio of the film, has made a fair joke that Cats (2019) replaced this film’s option to release.
