Princess Academy was to be an animated short that would've featured all the female characters that debuted from the films that came after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs all the way up to Tangled, including Pixar films, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

It was to be a musical on par with the segments seen in the Fantasia films. The premise was that all the key animated female characters of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar interact with each other, singing, dancing and enjoying each other's company in a royal boarding school. The music was to be composed by Alan Menken.

Development

In May 2009, production started for the film.[1] In August 2012, eight-time academy award winning composer Alan Menken agreed to work on the project, as long as it would be greenlit by Disney in the future.[2] In March 2013, Disney completely gutted their hand drawn animation department, firing almost all of their veteran 2D animators. This was a shock to Kawena and Ciappa, who had been working on The Princess Academy for years now. As stated by Kawena: “After months working on it, with hundreds and hundreds of storyboards and concept art, the Disney Animation hand drawn studios closed its doors. So there was no point for us to even show that project.“ With no other options, the film was cancelled.[3]
