Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a 2001 American animated movie created by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the 40th movie in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. It was the first science fiction movie for Disney animation. The movie is set in 1914. It tells the story of a young man who gets a sacred book. He believes the book will guide him and a crew of adventurers to the lost city of Atlantis.
It was released on June 15, 2001. It did not make as much money as Disney wanted. Disney stopped making both a spin-off television series and an underwater attraction at its Disneyland theme park.

Besides, Disney executives maintain that they have made it easier for their animated features to break even by a cost-cutting campaign that made Atlantis, which cost $100 million, about 35 percent cheaper to produce than the studio's other recent animated efforts.
