A TV series spinoff was planned but canceled, and the animation that had been produced was adapted into a direct-to-video sequel movie: Atlantis: Milo's Return. Milo's Return is generally regarded as disappointing by fans of the original film.

Several fans commented on ATLE's similarity to Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water.[1][2]


The most common ship is the canon couple Kida Nedakh/Milo Thatch. James Rourke/Helga Sinclair also enjoys a degree of popularity.
