Besides topping some of their Renaissance stuff, and being the pinnacle of traditional/CGI animation integration, it's the most original sci-fi film to date. Plus, converting this to 3D may just do wonders for it. Imagine how cool solar surfing might look in 3D. Even without 3D conversion, it could still act as a way of judging whether or not audiences are still interested in traditional animation, no? Lastly, considering Disney's interested in reviving their past, albeit through live-action remakes, a rerelease in theatres wouldn't be that costly, would it? Surely this film could be given the success it should of had all those years ago.

2. 
For starters, it has one of the most unique interpretations of Atlantis ever to hit the screen. Plus, this has one of the most diverse casts ever seen in film, live-action or animated. The directors, and Don Hahn, said that this was to make it more visually interesting and indeed that effect works. The reason this film flopped in theatres is because the advertising didn't focus on the comedy. Look at how well that's worked for Kung Fu Panda and other animated films. A rerelease in theatres could cause this movie to be the box office success it should have been years ago. Heck, Disney had some guts when they were advertising this film. Look at what they put up at Main Street here back when the film was in theatres:  Fanservice much?

3. 
This film could have been the film that at least stalled Disney's departure from traditional animation. It's no masterpiece, but it's a great comedy nonetheless that includes one of the greatest fake-outs ever seen. The reason this film flopped is because the marketing is among the worst any Disney film has ever had, if not the worst. Look it up if you don't believe. The posters were generic, and some of them made the side characters seem like major characters. Not to mention the advertising was horrendously unfaithful to the movie. Heck, I bet even this trailer I made is better than their official one:  Had they used advertising that focused on the better jokes and the adventure more, this film would have been a box office success.

4. 
This film paved the way for Disney's later CGI features including: Chicken Little, Meet The Robinsons, Bolt, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Moana, and Zootopia. Furthermore, it's the only piece of a legacy of Disney's that may just be forgotten in time. This was the only film made by Disney's The Secret Lab (now defunct). The Secret Lab was not only going to be Disney's visual effects unit, but it was a back-up plan in case they actually had to start competing with Pixar. Disney invested a lot of money in this and despite Dinosaur being a box office success, Disney had to shut down The Secret Lab. You can read more about that story here: jimhillmedia.com/columnists1/b… Lastly, this film is actually closer to Walt Disney's animation philosophies than Frozen. Seriously, once the '30s rolled around he became interested in blurring the lines between cartoons and reality. Here's another interesting fun fact for you all: the directors did in fact do a lot of research, but at the same time, they knew they going to "cheat like hell." Yes, one of them actually said that.

5.  
This film was quite possibly ahead of its time. Note that if it were a film made today it would be praised for its dark themes instead of criticized. It would fit in along the likes of How To Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda. It was Disney's first PG animated movie. You know how many of their PG-animated movies have been box office success lately? 6, and that's just limited to everything made by Walt Disney Animation Studios. Considering the fandom it has, a rerelease in theatres could create a new generation of fans, drawing in money from both old and new. Plus, according to the directors' commentary for Anastasia, kids really loved Rasputin despite being part of the dark portions of that film, most notably his amusing injuries he causes to himself. Perhaps that has not changed after nearly a decade. Despite not being a Disney Princess, Eilonwy still paved the way for future proactive Disney princesses.
