Disney was supposed to come out with their own animated film adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk but the project was cancelled:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unproduced_Disney_animated_shorts_and_feature_films#2017

If you go to the second link, there were a bunch of unproduced animated films based on novels, short stories, fables, legends, myths, fairy tales, etc. listed there.

Disney had been struggling to produce an animated film based on Don Quixote since the 1940's.

@JGoldman10,
Probably because the 1930s Warner Bros version is too iconic, that people will inevitably compare Disney's version with the WB version.

Even when Disney produced the 2013 live action prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful, they made an effort to match the set design as close as possible to the WB version without facing legal issues with Warner Bros.
Quote:
Disney had a copyright expert on set to ensure no infringement occurred. The production team worked under the constraint of abiding by the stipulations set forth by Warner Bros., the legal owner of the rights to iconic elements of the 1939 film, including the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland. Therefore, Disney was unable to use them nor any original character likenesses from the 1939 film. This extended to the green of the Wicked Witch's skin for which Disney used what its legal department considered a sufficiently different shade dubbed "Theostein".

Dreamworks already made an animated Puss in Boots film. Disney notably avoids producing works that have been adapted by major studios, if possible.

@JGoldman10,
It wouldn't be the first time Disney had to cancel a film.

Walt Disney himself was working on adaptations of The Snow Queen, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty & The Beast before being forced to delay the projects. Disney Animations tried to produce a Snow Queen film in the early 2000s, but ran issues with the Snow Queen character.

Here's more links about this:

The last link talks about a Gremlins movie- one based on the mythological creatures that infamously supposedly sabotaged WWII planes:

The titular creatures in the Disney animated film would have been more akin to the Gremlins from the old Warner Bros. cartoons, NOT the creatures from the old comedy horror movies.

@Rebelofnj,
I assume you're talking about the classic live-action Wizard of Oz movie that most people presumably are familiar with. The classic Wizard Of Oz movie from the 1930's was produced by MGM, not Warner Bros.

@JGoldman10,
I'm well aware of most of them. The special features on the blu-rays of some of the animated films talk about how Walt Disney, who was in Europe for business, bought hundreds of books containing fairy tales and stories for the purpose of adapting them.

The blu-rays also talk about the alternate versions of their films, like Beauty and the Beast originally having Belle's sisters, and the Snow Queen in Frozen was originally much more evil.

@Rebelofnj,
Do you think Anastasia would have been an animated film Disney would have produced if Don Bluth and 20th Century Fox didn't?:

No, as they probably would have avoided making a Disney Princess film out of a real life tragedy.

@Rebelofnj,
Pocahontas was based on a real person.
