An extensive look at how the 2001 forgotten Disney classic was made. It features interviews with the directors, cast and crew. Enjoy this wonderful production.

This is uploaded for the purpose of education for the viewer on the history of this piece of animation. I do not own this, and if the Disney Corporation wants it taken down then I will take it down.

    • I like Setting The Scene (28:43) because it discusses how they animated the film in Scope (2.39:1).

  • Dr Sweet was one of my favorite characters since I can remember, the way he talks, the way he behaves! He is just so cool and different! I am so thankful for him, specially for Audrey too because she looks so much like me, she influenced a little mexican girl to be proud and tough no matter gender or size. I couldnt be happier to have grown with a film full of life, love and diversity like this one.

  • What pisses me off is that this was the film Disney dedicated to Jim Varney's memory, and they now pretend that it never existed. Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Treasure Planet are two forgotten gems.

  • If they made this movie as a tv series with hour long episode they couldve easily done all the crazy ideas that were cut from this movie and it would have felt like a juggling act. Granted its an amazing movie and one of my favorites but if disney doesnt do a live action version of this then a tv series would work just as well

  • “Solo sha mah Milto Tatch itomo” Anyone else remember that line Kida says to Milo from the end of the movie trailer? (It means “Do not worry Milo Thatch”) I remember watching this whole documentary when I was a kid. My mom took me to see the movie in theatres and we loved it so much When it came out on VHS, my mom bought my first DVD, this movie, the special edition. This documentary was on the second disc. I still have this DVD to this day. The second DVD I got was another Disney/Pixar movie that’s been forgotten, Dinosaur. Don’t know if anyone remembers that movie but it was amazing.

  • Atlantis otherwise known as Dwarka in reality is so special... and this is a wonderful interpretation... with little knowledge of the history they managed to make you feel it 100% and that i think is what always drove me to find Atlantis myself ...its crazy to think had it not been for Disney of all things lol i would never known about such a beautiful place and for that i'm grateful to this team and all the struggles that they had to go through to make this movie. Amazing job.

    • No marketing, bad opening times. No tie ins anywhere. He looks, treasure planet was purposefully released the first weekend after Harry potter 1. Disney only wanted, and still wants, to make princess movies. Those movies were do bild, adventurous, couldn't be watched by the three year old.

  • Thanks for posting this. I worked on this movie 23 years ago but never had a chance to watch this until today! The crew worked very hard on this beautiful movie. Unfortunately, it was released right at the time when the audience were hyped about the new experience of 3-D animated movies. Therefore the box office sale was flop. It was said. Yet I’m still very proud to had a chance to work on this production, alongside with a lot of talented artists whom eventually I have become friends with.

  • I used to think that Atlantis was good material for a disney remake as it wasn't as well known and beloved as other properties and it therefore had room for improvement. I feel it still is a bit justified but after seeing the passion and work that went into the project I now think why would they bother rehashing such a fine film? It may not have garnered the attention or box office of the other movies, but I do not see any attempts at remaking atlantis coming out with anything better than what was made before. Truly underated

    • Thats because those are the only movies past the late 70s that are not princess musicals. And the studio didn't really want them anyways, so, less interference. Except of course for no advertisement, crushing opening dates and what else made those movies flop.

  • It was a good plot overshadowed by perfect characters and flawless animation, Disney couldn't make a movie like this today especially with the assembly line monstrosities, live action remakes they've been focusing on, see the problem with assembly lines is that someone is doing a good job but ultimately because one step was shoddy the whole final product is terrible and there's no one to blame because the guy who did a good job approved of the first guy's shoddy work

    • @Mike Jack and that was a rip off of a jules verne story. There are only so many ideas for stories to tell, and with the vast amount of stuff around, everyone is inspired by everything. One could also say its a stargate ripoff. The most important thing is for story to be told with heart.

    • @TeylaDex well, not for nuthin but, the 2 main characters are actually direct rip offs as well as the entire Atlantis motiff. Disney has a history of ripping off lesser known anime for example the classic Lion King movie is at times a shot for shot plagiarism of the anime Kimba the White Lion

  • I know I'm not the only one staying this. This movie is criminally underrated. I swear, Disney movies these days have no passion anymore. This company is dead inside. These people creating Atlantis didn't care about making money. They cared in making a good, fun, and entertaining movie. And they got it. I don't care if many can't see the brilliance and worth of this film. I do get it and I wish, for the love of God, for the love of Walt Disney himself, that the Disney company would go back to creating good quality entertainment like this. But I'm an idiot, an imbecile, for wishing these things. It's never going to happen.
