Mine is Fraidy Cat because it had an interesting plot. For movies that were released, but really different from the original vision, my favorite is American Dog, which became Bolt.

Ever since I learned that The Emperor's New Groove was originally going to be a good movie and it was going to be called Empire of the Sun with musical numbers and a plot that wasn't stupid, I've been longing for it. Not technically canceled since The Emperor's New Groove did happen, but still.

Also still bitter about The King of the Elves and Gigantic.

I've always wondered deeply about kingdom of the sun. From what I can tell a lot of the plot points were reused for the final movie which is a better fate than what happened to frozen and american dog.

Too bad Pixar never made Newt. I guess it was suppose to be a lot like Rio.
Yeah it was about the newts about to go extinct and the mani newt found a girl and they had to find more. It was basically a Rio rip-off. But the concept art looked so good!

Empire of the Sun is a Stephen Spielberg movie. Kingdom of the Sun is what became The Emperor’s New Groove. Have you seen The Sweatbox, the documentary about the demise of Kingdom of the Sun that Disney has only allowed to be screened a handful of times?

F

Also nah but I'll look into it.
 
I heard treasure planet 2 was one of those direct to dvd sequels, which means it probably would have not been very good. I could be wrong though.
In that case, you're probably right, but in the off chance that it wasn't going to be a straight to DVD sequel then it seems like it would've had potential
