* ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' pulled off the adaptation quite successfully, though it's somewhat inspired by the more odd ''Sailor Myu'' theater musicals performed since the original show ended and had a vastly different plot from the anime and the manga.
** An [[CulturalTranslation Americanized]] live-action adaptation languished in DevelopmentHell for years, with many different people suggested to be a part of the project. The earliest project supposedly would have starred Geena Davis as Queen Beryl, and the most recent rumor suggested Lindsay Lohan as Sailor Moon herself. None of these ever came to pass (and how real any of these actually were was often questioned despite their prevalence in the rumor mills).
*** Speaking of Americanized Sailor Moon adaptations, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the American version of the show was originally going to be]] [[RogerRabbitEffect a live-action and animated hybrid where the live-action girls transform into animated heroines.]] They then decided that this was too expensive to do, and that dubbing the anime was cheaper than simply just remaking it. [[http://www.moonsisters.org/moonsisters/ToonMakerS/ToonmakersSailormoon.htm Here's a page entailing what the show would have been like.]]

* A live-action ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' movie has been talked about since 2006, but lawsuits over the franchise rights blockaded it from happening. It's seen some steady progress since then, with the most recent rumor as of November 2016 being that Creator/{{Universal}} had inherited the ''Voltron'' film rights from Creator/DreamWorksAnimation and that Creator/DavidHayter was being tapped to write the movie.
