the Devil and Bob") several months ago in which he said he had

Movie Tip = James Gardner will be the voice of the villain, I
don't recall the character's name, but Mike Surrey will be animating

(January 28, 1999) “The Insider” tells Animation Artist magazine
that Atlantis may beat Kingdom of the Sun to marketplace because
of numerous production problems with Kingdom of the Sun. “Some
intense discussions over Kingdom of the Sun could force the release
date of Atlantis to be pushed up,” says “The Insider.”
1999) “Epic” tells Animation Artist magazine that Disney is taking
a very serious tone with Atlantis. So much, in fact, that there
may not be any songs in the movie.
3, 2000) “Cory” tells Animation Artist magazine that Michael J.
Fox and Claudia Singer are confirmed as major cast members. The
movie will be a mixture of traditional animation and computer
animation, with most of the computer animation being applied to
objects like ships. Apparently there will be another race (alien?
human?) in the movie.
3, 2000) “K” tells Animation Artist that in addition to Michael
J. Fox (playing the part of Milo Thatcher), Mark Hammill, Claudia
Christian, and Jim Varney will be a part of the voice cast.
2000) “Well, they aren't gonna get Jim Varney to be a voice actor
because the actor has died of cancer. He will be missed.” ~ Tip
2000) Mike Mignola, the artist and writer of the comic Hellboy,
is said to be the consulting on the films style. Disney will be
emulating Mignola's style, but in their "Disney-ized" (Mike's
words) way.” ~ Tip by “B”
2000) Great news regarding its music: based on the strength of
his work for "Dinosaur", James Newton Howard has been enlisted
to compose the score for "Atlantis". YIPEE! ~Igger
