Atlantis's visual style was strongly based upon the graphic, angular style of Mike Mignola, the comic book artist behind Hellboy. Mignola was one of four production designers on the film and provided style guides, preliminary character and background designs, and story ideas. In an interview with the New York Daily News, Mignola said,
I remember watching a rough cut of the film and these characters have these big, square, weird hands. I said to the guy next to me, “Those are cool hands.” And he says to me, “Yeah, they’re your hands. We had a whole meeting about how to do your hands.” It was so weird I couldn’t wrap my brain around it.
In the shot of the Ulysses going down into the ocean in Atlantis, one of the crewmen can be seen seen waving to the camera. He is visible for a few frames, right after Milo goes out of camera range.
Atlantis was one of the last (if not the last) Disney animated film to feature real gun violence. In films after Atlantis, guns would either be science fiction in design (like in Lilo & Stitch or Treasure Planet) or wouldn’t be fired (there are a few exceptions where they are fired for comedic purposes, such as in The Princess and the Frog.)
could we maybe see some trivia of atlantis: the lost empire? i feel the movie is sadly underrated and it happens to be one of my favorites! i just looooove milo and kida!
Mine too :) Let’s see what I can get
What os the mame of the had hit in pocahontas
how long would it take to walk from Expedition Everest to Splash Mountain
Well it would depend on how fast you walk, but according to Google Maps, it will take about 3 hours to walk from Animal Kingdom to Magic Kingdom. So that, plus a few minutes to get from the gates to the attractions.
I'm not sure if it was ever mentioned, but this thought occurred to me the other day: What was Tarzan's name before Kala found him and named him Tarzan?
It’s never addressed in the Disney movie, but in the novel Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle (one of 26 Tarzan novels), author Edgar Rice Burroughs reveals that his real English name is John Clayton, Viscount Greystoke.
According to John Grant in an article for D23.com, ”Julius’ real raison d’être was that Disney’s distributor Charles Mintz wanted the shorts to be packed with as many visual gags as possible. Alice was not a comic role—and anyway it would have been a bit much to expect seven‑year‑old children to take on the burden of being humorists. So, perforce, the shorts required a central comic character—and Julius provided this.”
Julius the Cat is a character from Walt Disney’s Alice Comedies. As Alice’s cartoon sidekick, Julius was the first major re-occurring animated character created by Walt Disney, predating even Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Any interesting facts about Julius the cat?
Unfortunately, there’s not much out there about him. But let me see what I can do.
