East of the Sun and West of the Moon was a planned film of Don Bluth. The film was cancelled by Paramount Pictures after Don Bluth Productions become Sullivan Bluth Studios. It was planned to be an adaptation of the Norwegian fairy tale of the same name. This film was going originally to be produced after The Secret of NIMH, but finally, the production was scrapped.

Kay Nielsen knew his way around a fantasy. The Danish illustrator was raised in a “tense atmosphere of art” (his words) during the Golden Era of Illustration – a time when folks one-upped each another with books bearing golden spines and marbled end papers; elaborately illustrated copies of Grimm's Vintage Illustration Art, Vintage Art, Vintage Illustration, Classic Art, Fairytale Illustration, Fairytale Art, Japon Illustration, Book Illustration, Illustration Art
