Was an Amiga port of Virgin's The Jungle Book ever started?

I remember that back in late 1994/early 1995 Amiga magazines were reporting that after the Amiga versions of Aladdin and The Lion King, an Amiga port of Disney's Jungle Book would be next. Naturally, that would have been a job for John Twiddy because he had already ported Global Gladiators, Cool Spot, and Aladdin, all of which use a similar engine based on tUME, and The Jungle Book was created by the same team that did Global Gladiators, Cool Spot, and Aladdin with the legendary David Perry being the lead programmer. So The Jungle Book could probably have been ported quite easily by using Aladdin's engine as a starting point.

So does anybody know if work on an Amiga port of The Jungle Book was ever started or if this was just an empty announcement? AFAIR Virgin announced The Jungle Book for the Amiga at a CES show in 1994.
