As a side note, the article mentions that Lorenzo was “originally intended as part of a follow-up musical anthology to Fantasia 2000,” which would seem to be further evidence that Fantasia 2006 has fallen by the wayside and is no longer in production. The first bit of evidence was when it was announced that the short feature One by One, which was also intended to be part of Fantasia 2006, would be included on the upcoming special edition DVD of The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride.
