Is 'King of the Elves' dead?
"King of the Elves" is a long in the works animated feature from Disney Animated Studios. The project has been refashioned a number of times, but currently still has a Spring 2012 release date. Obviously, that's not going to happen, but the studio hasn't officially killed the fantasy flick. Disney hired "Horrible Bosses" screenwriter Michael Markowitz to take another stab at the project in June and reportedly wants it ready for Holiday 2013. That may be the case, but Animation topper John Lasseter didn't bring it up during his long portion of the D23 presentation. Considering it doesn't officially have a director yet, that was probably a good idea.
