Within one week of the films opening week - Don Bluth and company at Fox's animation studios in Arizona were told to take a hike as they were closing it down.

I loved the film - thought it was extraordinary to watch. It will make a great DVD.

Too bad Fox left this movie to the birds - marketing wise.

Yes, it's really too bad that the studio guaged the performance of rht entire animation department by the box-office figures of its first and only production. What they SHOULD have based their decision on were the REVIEWS of the production, and not the dollars that it brought in. The dollars were weak because the film attracted a nitche audience, primarily Gen-X'ers, and did not appeal to the masses. We're talking film premise alone. But if you look at the response of those who DID go see the movie, it was overwhelmingly positive!

I really, REALLY hope this title makes its way to DVD and doesn't blink out of existence as I for one encourage further production along this line of work.

I believe the rumors section here indicates that the title is coming this November.

Also - Fox's animation studio released one other production earlier - Anastasia which pulled in $50+ million during its boxoffice run. Not bad for over an glorifed cartoon.

Titan A.E. has good potential on the video market - it will make a great DVD.

Unfortunately, Fox's execs thought differently of the situation.

I agree with you guys, Titan AE was visually stunning and the story kept me very interested throughout. And I'm pleased to share that I've already watched my brand new DVD of Titan AE with DTS and extras to boot!!! In fact I got first hand info that both Fox and DTS are very prowd of it, maybe it will do well enough in this form to save face and show Fox that their haste in canning their animation program was not the best move.
