Special Notes:
Also available in a single-disc movie-only version (#24084/$29.99)

Story Synopsis:
A seamless blend of animation and computer generated imagery, Atlantis: The Lost Empire is yet another ambitious Disney creation, suitable for an audience a little bit older than the studio

DVD Picture:
The all-digital, anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits sharp and detailed animated images. Color balance is superb, with rich, solid hues. There are no signs of edge enhancement which can distract from even the best animated features. The picture is clean and solid, and should surely delight its target audience. (Suzanne Hodges)
