Cancelled Movies. Wiki

In April 2012, Walt Disney Pictures announced that they have acquired the rights to direct a film based off the novel The Graveyard Book by author Neil Gaiman. The film was moved to Pixar as a stop-motion production, which would have been the company's first adapted work. The movie adaption of this book was planned for an October 2013 release.

They have hired Henry Selick (director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, Coraline) as a producer. Ron Howard (Director of Splash, The Shootist, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas) was even attached to direct the film itself, and Sean Bailey was attached as a supervisor.


A boy named Nobody Owens is raised by ghosts in a cemetery.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Selick and Pixar parted ways over very heavy/stressful scheduling and development.


  • The film was permanently cancelled.
  • The Graveyard Book remains as a book, with not a single animated movie at all.
