DisneyToon Studios is an animation studio and a division of Walt Disney Feature Animation. It produces primarily sequels to Disney animated features (The Lion King 1½, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch), Winnie-the-Pooh films (Pooh's Heffalump Movie), and Mickey Mouse films (The Three Musketeers, Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas).

DisneyToon Studios Australia (see also Walt Disney Animation Australia), formerly known as Walt Disney Television Animation Australia, was a part of DisneyToon Studios based in Sydney, Australia. Originally one of several Disney television animation satellite studios, responsible for programs such as Goof Troop, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, and Bonkers, DisneyToon Studios was the main producer of the many Disney sequels and direct-to-video films (among them most of the above-mentioned films, along with the theatrically-released Return to Neverland, Jungle Cubs, and Piglet's Big Movie). It was the last in-house Disney facility that produced traditional animation.

On July 25, 2005, The Walt Disney Company announced that it was closing DisneyToon Studios Australia in October 2006, after 17 years of existence. The closing was attributed to the rising costs of animation production in Australia. DisneyToon Studios plans to produce its animated films, both traditional and computer-generated, primarily through outsourcing in the future.

On February 23, 2006, due to new management brought on at Disney through the purchase of Pixar, all future films in production or due to go into production at DisneyToon which are not connected to a Consumer Products line are to be cancelled. This includes Pinocchio II and Dumbo II. Films to have survived this are The Little Mermaid III, The Tinker Bell Movie and Cinderella III, as they are connected to the Disney Princess and Disney Fairy lines.
