Question about 2-D Animation mixed with live-action

In a movie shown in Japan earlier this year, “Mashin Sentai Kiramager Episode Zero,” which introduced this year’s super sentai season (the basis for Power Rangers), there is a closing song sequence in which an anime character from another Toei series, the idol anime “Healin’ Good Pretty Cure,” appears alongside the Red Ranger from Kiramager to do a song, with the 2-D cartoon character inserted into the live-action scene. Later in the song, all five girls from the Pretty Cure series are inserted into a number, filmed on an actual Tokyo location, featuring three different sets of Power Rangers, all dancing together.

It got me to thinking that the last time I saw 2-D cartoon animation mixed with live-action was in Joe Dante’s LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION (2003). And before that? In descending order chronologically, SPACE JAM (1996), COOL WORLD (1992) and WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT (1988).

Am I missing any other recent examples of 2-D animated characters inserted into live-action non-CGI backgrounds?

Mary Poppins Returns, like the original, features several scenes of 2D animation in a realistic world and people in a 2D animated world.

It's always been a rarity for movies to do but it does happen.

The oft forgotten Disney movie Enchanted, starring Amy Adams as a Disney princess who comes to the real world (I still want a sequel of some sort).

This may not count because it's CG of some sort but there's a Yokai Watch movie that is basically a similar concept where they cross into the "real" world and comment about how odd they look.

The last Spongebob movie (not the delayed one that hasn't been released yet) had them becoming CG characters in the real world.

The live action Dora movie also had a brief animated sequence.

Thanks. These sound worth checking out, esp. the Yokai Watch movie.

^ It's hard to count stuff like 2011 & 2013 Smurfs movies or Simpsons 3D Homer because it's not traditional 2D cel animation Ash is asking about. Neither is Space Jam for example, but for the purposes of animated characters interacting in a physical world...

It's the first one I thought of after your description because the ending dance is done with a mix of live action and animation.

It's pretty obvious which one it is if you look at pictures but it's the 3rd Yokai watch movie:
Yo-kai Watch: Soratobu Kujira to Double no Sekai no Daiboken da Nyan!

There's also stuff like this Haruhi bubblegum commercial from a few years ago:
