The director of the animated film Atlantis told how another sequel to
The Disney adventure cartoon Atlantis: The Lost World, made in the format of classic 2D animation, was released in 2001 and failed at the box office, burying hopes for a full sequel. With a budget of approximately $ 120 million, the picture raised $ 180 million.
The company still released the sequel to the animated series Milo’s Return, consisting of three stories. But the director of the original, Kirk Wise, who was not involved in the work on these three stories, discussed a full second part with his colleagues.
“The story director John Sanford, the second director Gary Truzdale and I really came up with the idea for the continuation of” Atlantis. “It was not connected with the TV version of” Atlantis “, which was engaged in Disney Television Animation. It was supposed to be a full-length full-scale sequel.
We registered a new villain for the plot. He wore a large, frightening, clumsy costume in the spirit of the First World War, with a terrible gas mask that covered his entire face; a kind of Darth Vader. And this villain tried again to capture Atlantis in order to complete what Rourke had begun. And the main turn in the finale was when the mask fell off the villain – it turned out to be Helga Sinclair. This is a twist! ”
Wise explained that Helga survived at the end of the first film, but has changed a lot over the years. She would become a cyborg of the early 20th century and assemble her team of mercenaries.
In mid-May, The Illuminerdi portal said that Disney allegedly started work on the movie remake of Atlantis, who knows if Wise’s ideas will be taken into work – although it’s not yet known who will be involved in the film.
