From the Fox integration thread...

Blue Sky had Nimona and Foster on the in-development column. We're told Nimona is DOA, we can presume Foster is, too.


Anyhoo, licensing deals are still winding down before all of Blue Sky winds up on Disney+...

  • Anastasia (she's even in the 'Princesses' section!)
  • The Simpsons Movie
  • Dr. Seuss Horton Hears a Who
  • Epic
  • The Peanuts Movie

They could have just sold it back to Fox who is looking to produce their own animation...
Or Paramount/Nickelodeon
or Netflix
or Warner Bros.
or Lionsgate
or a Chinese company like Pearl Studio for reverse outsourcing (see “Rock Dog” and “Over the Moon”)
or a European company like Canal, Bertelsmann or Mediaset

Even SEGA could have used them to step into Western Animation more efficiently. I feel like the descision to shutter them was all about IP in the end, IP they likely will never seriously use.
