Trivia: John Lasseter was originally on board to direct the film for Disney with a mix of traditional animation and CG characters, which would have made this film the first of its kind. However the executives decided to pull the plug on the project driving Lasseter to Pixar, and leaving the movie in limbo. The remaining team managed to get the film produced independently and was a big hit when it was shown in the Sundance Film Festival. Again as luck would have it, there were no commercial buyers and Disney finally bought it and showed it on televsion.
