Atlantis Producer
Downplays Titan A.E. References

Atlantis: The Lost Empire(June 11, 2001 - by digitalmediafx.com) Many critics are comparing Disney's PG-rated Atlantis: The Lost Empire to Fox's PG-rated Titan A.E., which bombed at the box office a year ago. The comparisons state that both are targetting the same audience (teenage boys), both are drama's without songs, both have similar plot points, and both break far away from the typical Disney formula.

Not so fast, says Atlantis Producer Don Hahn. Hahn is quoted by the LA Daily News as making the following statement about comparisons to Titan A.E.:

"Just because Titan A.E. did what it did doesn't mean you stop believing in these types of stories. My recollection is that Titan A.E. was marketed tightly to teen-age boys, especially with the soundtrack, and that is fundamentally not our goal with this movie. We never thought, 'Let's put together a bunch of explosions and make a movie for teen-age boys.' Is there stuff that appeals to that group? Sure, I hope so. But there's stuff for everybody."

Only time will tell. Atlantis opens in theaters nationally this Friday. It will be competing against Paramount's Tomb Raider and the continued strong performance from PDI/DreamWorks Shrek.
