** Ironically there are a couple Disney sequels that have gotten theatrical runs: ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'', ''Disney/PeterPan: Disney/ReturnToNeverLand'', and ''Disney/JungleBook 2''. This was meant to continue with ''Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch'' and ''Disney/TheLionKingOneAndAHalf'' (hence why they have higher production values) but due to the disappointment of the previous two films, they followed the Direct-to-DVD tread.

However, some others like ''Disney/BambiII'' (also higher production value) still got theatrical releases in regions such as Europe.

* ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth'' was originally intended to be this, but for unknown reasons, the film averted this and it was put into theaters. Most would agree that the final product still feels like it was ''supposed'' to be a direct to video film. There were plans to release sequels in this manner, but [[StillbornFranchise nothing has been heard from them since the initial announcement]].

* DC now has a whole series of direct-to-DVD animated films, from Warner Premiere. The fact that they are DirectToVideo has absolutely no bearing on their quality.
