I'm sorry to tell this to all you "Atlantis" fans but this not-to-be-regarded-as-a-Disney-classic picture is a rip off of a classic anime' film. Anime is Japanese animation (or "Japanimation" as Homer Simpson calls it). The characters look exactly alike, the plot is the same, the backgrounds, etc. Therefore, Disney has withdrew their name from the new animated film category at the Oscars this year, pushing all their luck on "Monsters Inc."

If you watched the back screen at the Disney Stores, they mention that they went to the Carlsbad caverns to do research on the caves. They took note as to how cold it was and made many sketches of the rock formations for reference.

In Atlantis, when the leviathan attacks the sub. Milo exclaims, "Jiminey Crickets, it's a machine!"
Just a little lagniape. The film takes place in 1914, and Jiminy Cricket didn't exist until 1940.

When Milo exclaims “Jiminy Crickets” he is using what was a common expression in the early 20th Century. This phrase was so common that Disney used it in the movie 'Snow White,' where the dwarfs say it as they find someone has been in their home while they were in the mine. The name of the cricket in 'Pinocchio' was chosen because the phrase was already well known, so it is very possible that this phrase could be used in Milo’s situation.
