Trivia

Twelve-year-old Nathan Parsons, the voice of Jean, did not know how to do a French accent at the time of his audition. So he asked Ed Lunning Jr., who was voicing Nemo, to teach him how to do a French accent. See more »

After you see Disney's ATLANTIS, watch this one again (or for the first time)
27 May 2001 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

A few years back, Disney announced they were going to be dubbing and releasing major Japanese anime in the US. So far, KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE and PRINCESS MONONOKE have been the only ones to make it. It's dang obvious though, that someone at Disney watched NADIA and took notes, because the character design of the Atlantean girl in ATLANTIS looks to have been lifted directly from here.

US release of the dubbed NADIA stalled at an early section on the series. I hope that the release of ATLANTIS prompts someone to complete the US release of NADIA, as I would like to finally understand what the heck I watched a decade ago in Japanese!
