Wandering around the web I discovered that Disney are apparently well into the process of making an animated feature film of a Philip K Dick story, 'King of the Elves'. This was originally published in a pulp magazine in 1953, prior to Dick's first full-blown novel.

"Originally slated for release in 2012, the film was reported as shelved in December 2009. In July 2010, it was reported by various sources that King of the Elves is back in development and it is being directed by Chris Williams, director of Bolt. The new director was confirmed in June 2011, as well a new script writer, Michael Markowitz."  (Wikipedia)

I'm not sure if I've read this. It's one of the over 120 short stories PKD wrote, mostly in the 50's, however this a synopsis  according to wikipedia
