20 Disney’s Atlantis Facts (You may or may not know)
After Hunchback of Notre Dame was released, Disney decided they didn’t want to do another musical. Instead, they chose to do an Action-Adventure film inspired by the works of Jules Verne.
The weaponry used is correct to the time period of early 20th century. The film features the Lee Enflied, the Lewis Gun, the Broomhandle Mauser and a variant of the Luger.
The creation of the Atlantean language was done by the same man who developed the Klingon language for the Star Trek films.
The filmmakers became interested in the readings of Edgar Cayce and decided to incorporate some of his ideas. (Edgar Cayce is an American psychic who allegedly possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance.)
Vinnie’s last name “Santorini” is actually the name of an ancient chain of volcanic islands in the Mediterranean (probably explains his obsession with explosives).
They utilized all three Disney Animation studies, employing 250 animators, artist and technicians.
The Crew actually traveled 800 feet underground in New Mexico’s Carlsbad Cavern to view subterranean trails, which they used as the base model for the movie.
A Japanese anime film “Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water” and “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” were both inspired by the novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.
American comic book artist Mike Mignola creator of the series Hellboy worked on the film.
Joss Whedon was the first writer involved with the film. Whedon is bet known as the creator of the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and also directed Marvel’s The Avengers.
Because the movie was planned as an Action-Adventure, the production crew made up t-shirts that read, “ATLANTIS” - fewer songs, more explosions.
The final scene was created by combining many 24 inch (61cm) pieces of paper. Each piece was carefully drawn and combined with animated vehicles flying across the scene. The entire piece reaches an equivalent of an 18,000 inch (457.2 m) piece of paper that the camera slowly pulled away from.

Hey all! During the two months, I freelanced some 2D Animation with the awesome french studio, Studio La Cachette. The thing that kept me sort of busy during my off times is now publicly online (and now I can bring it up!). It’s for the worlds 2016 event for the League of Legends tournament! It was my first time animating in a sort of Sakuga style of animation since I’m more used to a generic style of hand drawn animation. I had to look up the animation styles of Takeshi Koike and You Yoshinari (since that was the style they were aiming for), so it was a wonderful learning experience for me.
I wanna thank Ulysse for the great opportunity, and the wonderful team (Which was a blast to work with by the way). It was a lot of fun, and I’d love to work with these guys again!
You know what I love about 2017′s line up of superhero films? There are 6 of them, all in one year. One from Fox, Two from DC, Three from Marvel Studios. And all of them are nothing like each other. I mean, just look at this line up:
Logan, a Western inspired R rated film that redefines what the phrase ‘dark/grim superhero movie‘ means.
GotG 2, a sequel to perhaps the most proudly weird superhero movie ever made that’s set to be even weirder.
Wonder Woman, the first female led superhero film (ignoring Supergirl and Catwoman, which we do, cause those movies bombed big time), which is about a warrior from Themyscira fighting Germans in World War 1.
Justice League, DC’s first big team up movie.
And then there’s Thor Ragnarok. Which seems set on out doing Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of over the top comic book weirdness.
Of all the movies coming out this year, the only one that doesn’t feel completely unique is Spider-Man Homecoming. But even that has a villain never before seen in a Spider-Man film, an extremely diverse supporting cast compared to the previous SM films, and it’s going to co-star Iron Man.
