Storyline

One thousand years from now, aliens destroy Earth in fear of the Titan project. Some humans escape, becoming a downtrodden Diaspora, living in impoverished settlements. The mysterious Titan spacecraft also escapes, and its inventor has hidden it before dying. A spacecraft captain and its pilot, Korso and Akima, two humans, seek out Cale, the youthful son of the dead scientist and explain that he must help them find the Titan, which holds a mechanism to unite and save humanity. Cale refuses, but the arrival of the killer aliens persuades him to join Korso. Can he avoid his pursuers, know friend from foe, find the Titan, and embrace his humanity, a nature he has despised until now? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Originally this film was originally going to be released in 1999 but was moved to 2000 due to having lost to a few animated films of 1999 such as The Iron Giant (1999), the English dub of Pokémon: The First Movie (1998), South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut (1999), and Toy Story 2 (1999). See more »

Goofs

After stating that all of the Titan's guns have been destroyed, one shot shows Stith sitting in front of her gun display with one gun still indicating operational status. See more »

Quotes

Look for the Titan A.E. video game Available this fall from Fox Interactive. (But plans for the Titan A.E. game were abandoned.) See more »

Alternate Versions

The DVD includes deleted scenes, which, while some are still in pencil form, make the film more complete. They are as follows:
  • "Green Drink" - This is a longer version of the scene where Cale and Korso discuss the Titan. It includes Cale fixing the broken machine and more dialouge about his father and the Titan.
  • "Akima's Rescue" - This is another version of the scene where Korso and friends find Akima in the trade area. In this scene, she blows up an alarm and frees all the slaves.
  • "Ice Crystals- Extended Version" - This is basically an extended version of the famous ice crystals scene. It includes more dialouge between Cale and Akima (in pencil form), and scenes in different angles.
  • "Alternate Ending" - This is an extended ending where the Drej actually talk (not in subtitles) and more dialouge between Cale and Korso. Most of it is in pencil form, and it ends right after the Drej are destroyed.

Great movie, Great story, Great visuals. This movie is underrated
16 May 2005 | by shahmattSee all my reviews

Titan A.E is a story set in a post-earth era (hence the A.E: after earth, which i thought was a nice touch). Its about the son of a scientist who is thrust upon him the quest of finding the Titan, the greatest ship ever built, and is humanity's last chance.

The movie begins with an awesome scene of the evacuation of earth, and caught me nicely off guard with some great 3D rendering of the Titan (when launched), and the escape ships. The imagination that went into some scenes in the movie, especially the cruising alongside the wake angels, and the ice rinks were fantastic. And the plot, though a bit unrealistic in terms of modern science, was thoroughly refreshing in concept. And its got just the right balance of action to move it quickly from a kids film to a good sci-fi show for slightly older audiences.

Titan A.E is a great film. It has a story that's original and neatly executed. It brought about some great 3D rendering in a time where animation was primarily 2D. Its got good character development with a nice twist in the middle. And its also got a fine soundtrack, which I love to listen to.

Go watch this movie. You will not be disappointed.
