‘Oswald: The Lucky Rabbit’ Disney+ Series Officially Cancelled
Oswald has always had an interesting history within The Walt Disney Company, and once again the lucky rabbit’s luck has sadly run out.
For years, Oswald: The Lucky Rabbit has been in production, with the series being in development exclusively for the Disney+ platform which launched in November of 2019.
However, the show has now been reported to be canceled by Matt Danner who worked on the project.
Danner spoke on Twitter about how the show had gone as far as having a pilot in production before the team was split up and “scattered to the wind”.
Iger was very serious about it. The Legend of the Three Caballeros team was going to follow up with an Oswald show for steaming. Scripts written, designs done, animation test in hand, and a pilot in production. It was beautiful! Then we got broken up and scattered to the wind. 🐰 https://t.co/n3CTnepxS1

The team working on Oswald: The Lucky Rabbit and The Legend of the Three Caballeros (as mentioned above by Danner) were under Disney Interactive, Disney’s video game production team best known for Disney Infinity.
Disney Interactive stopped production on video games in 2016 with the discontinuation of the Disney Infinity game, with the team officially disbanding in late 2019 after production on The Legend of the Three Caballeros.
Even with his namesake of being lucky, Oswald has always seemed to be downtrodden in his lifespan but we’re remaining hopeful that one day he’ll return to his former glory.
