For a preview screening on 6 June 2000 in Atlanta, this movie was transmitted in digital form from the studio, across the Internet, to the digital projector at the theater. It never once touched film, and was the first major Hollywood film to be publicly previewed that way.
To tie in with the film, there were a series of prequel novels released, as well as a prequel comic book mini-series.
Because Titan A.E. (2000) didn't do well at the box-office, 20th Century Fox closed its animation studios in Arizona after only two feature films, the first being Anastasia (1997). Fox then contacted Blue Sky studios to produce animated films using 3D computer graphics such as Ice Age (2002) and Robots (2005).
14 years after its release, this is Don Bluth's last animated film, Bluth has remained vague about a return to animated films but his long time collaborator Gary Goldman has been attempting to finance a film based on Bluth's "Dragon's Lair" game.
On the drifter colony, the book the girl is reading is "Robinson Crusoe", a story about a man who spends 28 years stranded on an island.
The film takes place from 3028 to 3044.
