Flashback Friday-Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

The mythological island of Atlantis has intrigued humanity for an untold number of generations.

In 2001, Disney broke from its standard singing princess narrative when it released Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Milo Thatch (voiced by Michael J. Fox) firmly believes that Atlantis is not a myth, but a real place. No one believes him, except for Preston B. Whitmore (voiced by John Mahoney) who agrees to fund the expedition. Milo and the rest of the crew find Atlantis, but someone on the crew may have another reason for the expedition besides simply finding the lost island.

I get it, someone at Disney had an idea to try something new. However while the concept is interesting, the narrative and character development are not what they could be.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
