No, it’s based on this Japanese anime, Disney even admitted it, but legally the creator of that anime couldn’t really do anything about it.

I don’t remember what happened exactly, because I read the article on this story very long time ago, but basically he wanted to make this movie with Disney when he was alive but got scammed by Disney and it never happened.
