14 Reasons why Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire kicks ass
1. Diverse cast
Audrey is Hispanic
Sweet is black/Native American
Vinny is Italian
Mole is French
And Kida is Atlantean
which brings us to our next reason…
2. The Atlanteans
This movie features a made-up race called the Atlanteans. Physically, have brown skin, white hair, and varying eye colors. Because of the crystals they wear around their neck, their lifespan is 300 times that of a non-Atlantean human. They possessed extremely advanced technology; they had the power of flight in 300 B.C.!
3. The scenery
4. The language
A language and a writing system was created just for this movie.
Inspired by the Sumerian language of Mesopotamia, it can be compared to other languages from media such as Klingon and Na'vi.
Princess Kidakagash is beautiful, smart, strong, and…
she can fight like hell
She’s also the first princess to later become a queen, followed by Elsa from Frozen. The two are often compared because of this, and also because of their white hair.
6. Character development
The characters all have unique personalities and backstories (inspiring a lot of fanfictions and headcanons)
7. The sass
Three sassmasters in one movie!
8. Vinny Santorini
How could you not love this guy?
9. The movie has funny moments
10. and sad moments
11. The soundtrack
While Atlantis isn’t a musical (meaning the characters don’t sing) it has an awesome score. x
12. Action scenes
Atlantis is one of the few Disney movies with a PG rating (aside from the recent Tangled, Brave, and Frozen, rated PG for ??? reason? In my opinion, if The Hunchback of Notre Dame is rated G, then these movies should be too. Maybe they think the CGI animation makes everything more intense.) Therefore, they have some sweet action/explosion scenes that you don’t usually see in Disney movies.
13. Villain conflict
Neither of the two villains are presented as villains at first; and one of the villains ends up killing the other, leading that villain to fire a zeppelin at the first villain’s ship out of spite.
It’s kinda awesome.
14. Romance is a small side dish, not the main course- which is refreshing for a Disney movie.
