Titan AE is one of the greatest animated box office FLOPS of all time. Like it literally hurts to think about how much it failed but did it deserve all that hate?

i...LOVED Titan A.E, it is a real shame it did not do well but this vid explains a lot of why it did. I really enjoyed a sci-fi adventure that didn't put humans as a dominant species, as a group struggling to survive and all these other super-weird and fun alien designs, it was great!

I vaguely remember this movie. Mostly from some of the character designs of the aliens. But otherwise... I think I just found it forgettable.

The plot sounds like an early 90s-2000s knockoff Guardians of the Galaxy 1/2 plot. I'm surprised it didn't do better

In my opinion Titan AE was one of the finest pirate movies I have ever seen. Your "Edgy boy" view of Cale missed the presentation of a guy looking for some meaning as to who he actually was. Not a coming of age movie, but a movie of an individual who had started out feeling cast away by his family like a piece of discarded rubbish, who to this point had been forced to make his own way in a highly bigoted society. All of a sudden he is offered a spark of a chance to try to find out who he was and where he came from and why his family walked away from him in the first place. He was a nieve character to ulterior motives and started out starstruck by Korso, who he grasped onto as a surrogate father figure. Akima just happened to be one of a pair of independent female roles in a crew where everyone was indeed treated equal. The concept that Cale would wind up infatuated with her wasn't because she was written as a love interest, but more a case of that she was probably the first female of his own species he'd ever been able to interact with on an adult level. Sure he'd been around other females throughout his life, but most were most probably not human, and as such the expectation of bigotry would have prevented him from forming emotional attachment. The rest of the alien crew were each a fragment of human personality traits and as such formed a sort of family in space, the one thing Cale had been missing his whole life, and as such each were endeared to Cale as he became not only part of the crew but part of the family by extension. I have to point out. You utterly missed Korso. Dude was a merc through and through. A psychopath who is willing to use anyone to improve his own condition. He didn't care that he chucked the entire planet under the bus, he was in it for himself and was looking to fulfill his own megalomaniac desires. He knew that the Titan was the one thing the Drej wanted, and he was looking to milk them for as much as he could. He finds Cale, who just so happens to have the ring. He already knows what the rings full purpose is, and inserts himself in the surrogate farther figure role to gain control of the the ring, and the Titan itself as an end result. The ending still supported that mentality, as when the Drej showed they didn't care about his desires, he was willing to assist Cale in burning the Drej to create a new planet. Once again he was using Cale for his own desires as If he'd survived, it would leave him as a guy worshiped by humanity as a hero for providing a new homeworld. The crew was a pirate crew, under the command of a merc. In the end, the crew mutinied against Korso and appointed Cale as the captain for all intents and purposes. Cales motivations changed to an honorable position, willing to take on the adventure in the face of the overwhelming odds that the Drej presented, not for a selfish reason but the more selfless act of providing for his entire race. The crew was already scared of the Drej, and were willing to back Cale up if it meant their own species would no longer have the threat the Drej presented hanging over their heads. This was a promise of actual hope that Korso had never even hinted at. Where the movie failed was it was an animated flick, marketed to kids and teens, but with a depth that was on a level far beyond what the average American 14 year old could grasp and most adults couldn't take seriously as it was an animated film.

I barely remembered this movie (well meybe i was too young)but i remembered the female character and when i was a kid and watched treasure planet i was confused why the girl with purple hair didn't apear. I gree with you a Lot as i Said o don't remember much but from what you have Said in this video i agree. I Personaly i find 2000 3D ugly, (that end escene! Ugly!), There are parts where the 3d doesn't look that bad, from what you show here. The 2d is ok. I agree the characters do look boring and the story a little bland. But i'll whatch it for the nostalgia mostly.

I had always understood that the Dredge feard the humans because of the Titan, unsurprisingly part of the plot. It could easily consume them and did. I always found it ironic that if the Dredge had not destroyed Earth, their death(s) would not have happened either.

I saw Titian A.E. when I was really young, maybe around six or seven, the year of the movie or a year after, my whole family loves the movie. As a kid loved it because I loved all animated things at the time, still do, later love it even tho I knew it was good in movie terms, and now I love it because it is still enjoyable

So... I watched this movie and I really liked it. I was a teen when it was shown on television and I loved it. Sadly I never knew the name of the movie, so I couldn't buy it. Many of the Don Bluth movies weren't really good promoted in Germany. I still remember the movies but I always watched them randomly on television, because they didn't get much attention except for Anastasia (which many believed was a Disney movie) and A Land before Time or how it's called in english. It kinda makes me sad, because I enjoyed movies like Titan A.E or any other movie from Don Bluth so much but couldn't watch them more often, because of the poor marketing. Well guess who's searching the movies now and starts to watch all of them x,D

Yo I don't give a crap what the box office or critics have to say. This was my favorite movie as a kid, and now 20 years later MY kids love it as well. I'm glad I don't base my own opinions of movies on their financial success/failure, because frankly some of the best movies out there "flopped." Not to mention the fact that the animation techniques used in Titan A.E. had never been done before and looked amazing. I can admit there are a few vague similarities to Treasure Planet, but Titan AE has a far more cohesive plot/story and WAYYYYYY better character development. Now obviously movies are art and art is subjective, I don't expect everyone to like what I like. But calling Titan AE a bad movie is simply wrong. Some of the movies that blow up to huge success today are an embarrassment to the craft, but people go right along with those no pobpem. (Looking at you, Frozen.)

I remember being so disappointed watching this when I was younger. I really expected better motivation from the drej. Especially after seeing how they refueled the Titan. That was a straight up horror movie for the Drej. My hope was to center more around energy and the drej. Think on it, humans come onto the galactic scene and all the aliens start initiating contact. Which stops when the Drej pay their visit and see we use electricity as a power source. Imagine us finding out about a species that uses flesh to run their civilization. All the other aliens use different methods to run their stuff, out of fear of the Drej. Humans though? We can be stubborn, wilfull and you just know we're gonna roll our eyes when they say "You mind changing the entire infrastructure of your planet?" There's summits, we're trying to find a compromise but no, they want us to stop. Which would make us building the Titan plausible. More so than "Eh, we need a backup planet. I mean...yeah we're trying to be better buuut, recycling is hard!" or our species basically going hold my beer and constructing a scifi ark. From that point too you can jump to not only the Drej but other species living in fear that if Titan gets off the ground, we're just gonna tear through planets since we can make more. We'd be interplanetary locusts. Which can lead into one of those moral lessons they love so much, caring for our planet, being more responsible with our energy and open to alternative methods or, whatever. I'm not plumbing the movie's running plot though, that'd require a rewatch and just...meh, once was enough. (I don't remember if any of that is actually included buuut, I'm not looking into it. Again, meh.)

Don Bluth was trying to communicate the "Dangers of The ghost in the machine". Electricity can do many things even open a door to a "different" world that could let in anything. I wonder if Don Bluth was really related to Romney and if he then belonged to the "group".

I for one, loved this movie, and still greatly enjoy watching it, I never new it wasn't well received. Also, you were confused about corso. Corso was a part of the Titan project, but didnt travel with it after earth was destroyed. With the earth gone, and the dredge seemingly the unbeatable rulers of the galaxy, Corso started to hate humanity, falling into the notion that humanity was worthless, and was never meant to go far. The dredge confronted him (they must have found out he was a part of the titan project, which was still a threat to them because they viewed humanity as their only threat, thats why they blew up earth) and corso, who didnt want to die but also didnt care if the rest of humanity eventually died out, made a deal with the dredge to find the boy who had the map, and use him to lead the dredge to the titan to destroy it. he tricked his entire crew into believing that they were actually against the dredge, to get cale and bring the map to the dredge. When it worked, and the dredge had the map, cale just needed to tie up loose ends. but the kid escaped and so corso chased him to the titan with the dredge on their tales. During the fight against cale where he was actually pushing back the dredge, taking over the titan, and seemed to be able to win, corso had a change of heart. he didnt think humanity would ever beat the dredge but cale was proving him wrong, and that realization that maybe, just maybe, humanity could in fact win out, gave him hope and so corso switched sides to help cale, destroy the dredge and put humanity back on the galactic map. Im sorry the story didnt entice you, but i guess i fell in just the right group for this movie. the humor, the story, the action, the characters, the dark and sometimes suggestive themes, the strong leads, everything about it was thoroughly enjoyable for me. This movie is a classic for me, and I actually enjoy Titan A.E. far more than Treasure Planet, and Titan A.E. is one of my top favorite animated movies of all time.

I saw this movie in the theatres as a kid and I absolutely loved it. That being said it is interesting to learn about all the behind-the-scenes stuff that went on just trying to get it made. It may not be a great movie but I'll always love it for the sci-fi flick with interesting backdrops that it was as I remember. Also, it's interesting to see this guy get all hot and bothered over the Dredge Queen's thigh gap when he was horrified by the Martian's thigh gaps in Mars Needs Moms. I know this is all meant for laughs but still made me go 'Hmmm...'.

I have this movie on VHS. and I liked it. It's a good movie. It doesnt age well at all however. Lol the edgy main character is god awful. He always looks like he smelled the worst fart. And the main female leads voice doesnt fit at all. But the movie is worth watching if you like Treasure Planet. It genuinely feels like it could be part of the same universe. My only issue was at the time I bought it thinking it was Treasure Planet lol
