Disney+ Gives Up on Production of Series About Iconic Character…
The streaming platform Disney+ abandoned production of a series based on one of its most iconic characters.
the president of disney, Bob Igerdecided to cancel the project focused on the famous Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The pussy – which follows the same traits as Mickey Mouse – was one of the first characters created by the visionary Walt Disney.
The information was shared by the expert animation filmmaker and one of the leads of the series, Matt Danner. Through his official Twitter account, the artist commented on the decision to Iger:
“Iger was very serious about it. The Legend of the Three Caballeros creative team was going to develop a series about Oswald for streaming. Scripts were already written, designs were done, the animation test was in hand and the pilot episode was in production. It was beautiful, but then it was canceled and tossed to the wind.”
Danner still reassured fans, stating that this does not mean that Oswaldo will not have his own series on Disney+. According to him, his version was discarded, but that doesn’t prevent a new creative vision for another project with him from being developed.
“Don’t be sad about it. Oswaldo is much loved within Disney. I just wanted to share how serious this love is. I’m sure there will be a project about Oswaldo in the near future”.
Walt Disney created the character in 1927, but its rights were owned by Universal. Just over 80 years later, Bog Iger finally acquired the rights to the character again, after the NBC approached the company about the longtime announcer contract Al Michaels. THE disney essentially negotiated Michaels’ contract for the character’s trademark.
