* AVD Films and Creator/WETA worked on one for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' in 2003, but after languishing in DevelopmentHell for years upon years, chances of it actually manifesting became even more slim in 2011 when Creator/{{Gainax}} quietly withdrew AVD's rights to adapt the material. The only actual trace of the project was concept art by WETA workshop, but that was it.

* ''Series/TheTick'' had a short-lived prime-time live-action adaptation on Creator/{{Fox}} in the early 2000s. [[ExecutiveMeddling It had some problems]]. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork The problems weren't with the show]].

* Japanese film director TakashiMiike (of ''Manga/IchiTheKiller'' fame) released a live-action version of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' in 2012. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Umyms8JVYWg Trailer.]] [[Film/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney The movie]], despite darker and more serious tones compared to the game (which deals with murder cases on a day to day basis, but still) was received warmly and achieved modest success from audiences and reviewers. It helps that the Narumiya/Saitou pair (Naruhodo or Phoenix/Mitsurugi or Miles) wasn't too hard on the eyes, and that Miike wasn't shy in having fun with the gravity defying hair as well as the special effects.

* While ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie'' contains live-action sequences, ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'' is a rather strange example of this. Only the last 20 minutes and part of the beginning could be considered this trope, despite [[TrailersAlwaysLie the trailers saying otherwise.]]

* ''Film/ScoobyDoo'', the first film which heavily parodied the original and featured the title character (and TheScrappy himself) as a CGI creation. A theatrical sequel (''Monsters Unleashed'') and two direct-to-video prequels (''The Mystery Begins'' and ''Curse of the Lake Monster'') followed. A spin-off starring Daphne and Velma is due for 2018.

* ''Film/TheFlintstones'' has two live-action films, one featuring a star-studded cast of John Goodman as Fred, Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma, Creator/RickMoranis as Barney, Rosie O'Donnell as Betty, Creator/ElizabethTaylor as Wilma's mother and even saw Creator/HalleBerry in a small role before she was truly famous. While poorly reviewed, it was a financial success and seemed destined to spawn a franchise... except that the eventual sequel languished in development hell so long that the entire cast moved on. [[Film/TheFlintstonesInVivaRockVegas The later prequel]], trying to tell how Fred and Wilma fell in love, came out six years later and became a FranchiseKiller.

** The horrible performance of both the ''Rocky and Bullwinkle'' film and ''Dudley Do-Right'' killed production on a live-action ''Peabody and Sherman'' film. The project was revived as a CGI film at ''Dreamworks'' instead.

* ''Film/InspectorGadget'' starred Matthew Broderick. Though the film was a critical disaster and despised by fans, it made enough money to spawn a direct-to-DVD sequel... starring [[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun French Stewart]]. Ironically, the latter was more faithful to the cartoon show that spawned it.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' got an Creator/MNightShyamalan adaptation in 2010 -- ''Film/TheLastAirbender''. (The name was changed because of trademark conflicts with James Cameron's ''Film/{{Avatar}}''; they decided not to fight it even though ''Avatar: The Last Airbender'' came first.) They condensed the first season into a movie, hoping to make another two movies based on the other two seasons. However, the film was a disaster (largely due to not letting the original creators on the writing team as well as changing a number of things around) dashing any hope for more movies despite the film ending on a SequelHook.
