The following is a list of lost or unfinished animated films.
|The Adventures of Pinocchio
||1936: Was supposed to be Italy's first animated feature, but it was never finished and is now thought to be lost. Only the script and a few still images are all that survive.
|The Tale of the Priest and of His Workman Balda
Сказка о попе и о его работнике Балде (Skazka o pope i o yego rabotnike Balde)
||1933-36: Directed by Mikhail Tsekhanovsky, with music composed by Shostakovich. It would have been the USSR's first traditionally animated feature film, but it was abandoned shortly before its completion due to various production difficulties. Most of the film was lost in WW2, and the 6-minute market scene stands alone as a classic of Russian animated films.
|St. Francis: Dreams and Nightmares
||1936-39: Berthold Bartosch, who had previously directed the animated short L'Idee, worked on this feature film in Paris until he fled the city in anticipation of Nazi occupation during World War II. He left the unfinished film at the Cinémathèque Française upon fleeing, but it was destroyed during the occupation. Less than 30 minutes of the film had been completed when it was destroyed. Only a few still images survive.
|Hong Gil Dong
||1967: South Korea's first animated feature (traditional animation). It was believed that none of the prints of the film had survived to the present time, but recently, two copies have been found in Japan. It was being displayed at a gallery, but no one had noticed that it was considered lost.
|The Thief and the Cobbler
||1960s-1990s: film was taken away from director Richard Williams and released as Arabian Knight and The Princess and the Cobbler; heavily edited versions with much of the already-filmed footage cut out. Unofficial restorations of the original film are available.
||1970s-1980s: It was meant to be the first computer animated feature in the world, but was never completed.
|Treasures under a mountain or The Hobbit / Сокровища под Горой
||1991: The Argus International Animation Studio began to work on this animated movie, based on The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, but soon after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, only six minutes of the movie was shot, and the movie was never completed.
Прибытие поезда (Pribytiye poyezda)
||A watercolour-animated feature film begun in 1986 by Aleksandr Tatarskiy - part of the reason for the formation of PILOT Studio, the first private animation studio in the USSR. About 40 minutes were finished before hyper-inflation hit Russia in the late 1990s. The unfinished film was highly praised by several masters of Russian animation who saw it (including Fyodor Khitruk, Yuriy Norshteyn, Eduard Nazarov, Igor Kovalyov and others), before the film materials were lost to three consecutive floods in late 2005.
