Dumbo II was a planned sequel movie to the 1941 animated Disney film Dumbo that would have been directed by Robert C. Ramirez, who also directed Dreamworks's Joseph: King of Dreams. It was scheduled to be released in 2001, but production was cancelled by John Lasseter after he was named Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios in early 2006.

Plot

Taking place one day after the events of the first film, the story would have involved Dumbo, Timothy Q. Mouse, and a host of other baby animals (each of whom apparently represented a different stage of childhood) getting separated from the circus. While trying to find their way back, each character learned how to fix their flaws.

Speculation

There was speculation that the movie was finished before being cancelled because behind the scenes trailers are usually made after a movie is finished. However, it's unknown how much of the film was actually made at this time.

Sigh, if you are going to write an article, write it in one go, don't leave a message that says it is in construction or that you'll finish it later. And please, mind the grammar!!

Fixed what I could.

I'm glad it was cancelled. Going by the quality of the Disney straight to video sequels that were released in the 1990s and 2000s.

And they never will. Besides, it wouldn't have been a very good movie anyway. It was going to be a direct to DVD sequel. And any direct to DVD sequel Disney does is guaranteed to suck. And it will. Not all of them, but most of them.

I'm surprised you'd say that considering the track record for Disney sequels.

Disney MAY have done bits and pieces or entire scenes for it, up to them and them only to reveal whatever

Why The Fuck Would A Toy Story Director Like John Lasseter Cancel Dumbo 2.

I remember seeing the trailer on tapes way back when. I had no idea it was cancelled and always assumed it just went unnoticed.

Anons, please stop trolling this comment section with a non-existent VHS/DVD release of this film. It's never going to happen because Disney has long abandoned making direct-to-video sequels to their animated films since 2007 and we don't even know how far in production this film got before being cancelled despite being advertised in the 60th Anniversary DVD release of Dumbo.
