Animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) spent 28 years putting together his personal masterpiece, The Thief & the Cobbler, only to see it wholly butchered by one of the worst production nightmare runs ever, and his part finally ended when a scab production team took over and added voiceovers, songs, and removed subplots and whole characters.  This version, entitled ‘The Princess & the Cobbler’, was eventually released by Miramax to absolutely no acclaim.

One fan of the film took some serious initiative and decided to use bootleg footage to restore the film to William’s original vision, and has since released the film on DVD and over the Internet.  Take a gander at the trailer for Garrett Gilchrist’s unofficial restoration of “The Thief & The Cobbler”, or you can view the film in it’s entirety here
