FernGully was almost destroyed when Disney did not want Robin Williams to voice another animated character before Aladdin was released,he told Disney ‘It’s my voice! You can’t stop me.’ Disney went so far as to overpay for office space to prevent the small animation studio from completing the film.

My dream job is a part time astronaut.
my name is BATTY
Considering Katzenberg outright broke the contract Williams had with Disney and the shitshow that resulted, this doesn’t surprise me.
Robin Williams *AND* Tim Curry.
Those two should have done more dual-work. Iconic voices and great comedic sense.
Where is this movie streaming, because I LOVED this movie as a kid and now I want to show it to my kids. If it’s not streaming, I’m going to the library.
Office Space is a classic in my mind, so it seems to have worked out well!
This movie scared me so much as a kid.
Office Space or office space? Either way I don’t get why that makes sense.
“Price check on prune juice Bob, price check on prune juice”
What a classic movie, brings back so much childhood nostalgia!
Also Robbin Williams was perfect for that role! RIP
I need to make a list of these old cartoons when I get reminded of them, can’t believe I almost forgot this one!
Heres a few, please recommend more:
Secret of Nim
Rikki tikki tavi
The animals of farthing wood
Once upon a forest
The wind in the willows
The black cauldron
Warriors of virtue (not a cartoon but still cool)
The thief and the cobbler
The troll in Central park
Oliver and company
The dark crystal
Now Disney owns it thanks to their Fox buyout
That’s pretty fucked
When the Stroh’s brewery was being closed down in Van Nuys, movie studios used a lot of the site for filming. Naked Gun, Big Trouble in Little China, and Terminator 2. The studios also rented out some shitty trailers on site to work on Ferngully. I always thought it was odd that they made that movie in double wide trailers rather than an actual office but this makes sense now.
well I’m so glad that they didn’t succeed because FernGully is an amazing Disney movie and I think has every right to be here
Is it me or does anybody think Avatar (blue guys) are just a rip-off of FernGully?
I still think of ALL the animated movies that should be remade for today’s times it is this one. We get an Aladin live action, the little mermaid, why can’t we have an environmentally conscious movie to actually remake with a relevant message?!
Isn’t the movie an allegory for this kind of wrongdoing?
Yeah. Disney is not a good company. They weren’t then, they ain’t now.
Even with Ron Da-Dumbass butting heads with them I still wouldn’t root for Disney.
This is not a lesser evil scenario, they are all scumb.
And yet people will still spend thousands of dollars on Disney as if it were a freaking religion.
Disney made good movies when we were younger. **But they are** **mean. They are not our friends.**
disney is scummy, what a shocker
I’m assuming this is an anti Disney post by some Florida Republican troll to cast Disney in a bad light….has __D__isgusting __D__esantis written all over it.
Human tails? Humans don’t have tails. They have big, big bottoms that they wear with bad shorts. They walk around going, “Hi, Helen”.
Furngully was my sexual awakening movie… 😅
So Disney was thinking they “owned” Robins voice or something?
First time I’ve heard this story, interesting bit of entertainment history.
That movie is so awesome. I still have it on VHS!
Fuck I miss RW a genuine genius of a comedian and actor nobody else could make me laugh like him. RIP RW.
They needn’t have bothered. Aladdin was huge and kids weren’t confused that Robin Williams was in more than one animated thing.
