King of the Elves is an upcoming film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, the film was originally to have been directed by Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker, and produced by John Lasseter and Chuck Williams and will be the 59th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon. It is unknown when the film will be released.

Originally slated for release in 2012, the film was reported as shelved in December 2009. In July, 2010, it was reported by various sources that King of The Elves is back in development and it is being directed by Chris Williams, co-director of Bolt. It was later reported that the production was doing so well that it rivaled Frozen for a 2013 release date. Production eventually stalled due to story problems, and directer Chris Williams started helping other current film projects on the side. While King of the Elves is not cancelled, it is stalled in production and no known release date is set.

Premise

Based on Philip K. Dick's 1953 short story fantasy "The King of the Elves", the film is about a band of elves and one dwarf living in the modern-day Mississippi Delta who name a local human, Calder, their king after he helps save them from an evil troll.

Dick is best known for writing the short stories that Blade Runner [Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?] and Total Recall [We Can Dream It For You Wholesale] were based on.
