* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization offers a great deal more exposition and world building, filling in some apparent plot-holes in the film, including how and why Cale can manipulate Drej technology so easily, and why the Drej were freaked out about the Titan Project in the first place (which the movie hints at but never adequately explains).

the Drej were freaked out about into actual ''characters'' rather than generic Evil Aliens, showing a bit of how their civilization works, what their motivations are, and why they are so obsessed with the Titan Project in ([[spoiler:the Titan has technology that works on similar principles to Drej LostTechnology; the first place (which Drej are hoping to capture the movie hints at but never adequately explains).Titan to reverse-engineer it and hopefully repair their own failing tech]]). The Drej Queen's name (Susquehana) is also only known through the novels.

In 3028, humans create the ''Titan'', a spaceship representing the pinnacle of human achievement. Threatened by humanity's potential, the Drej, a race of energy beings, attack and destroy Earth. The ''Titan'' manages to launch and escape, but it disappears in the aftermath, along with its primary creator Sam Tucker. The humans who survive the destruction of their planet become the homeless of the galaxy, living as laborers for alien species or on cobbled-together drifter colonies. Fifteen years later, Sam Tucker's son Cale (voiced by Creator/MattDamon) is recruited into a RagtagBunchOfMisfits who set out to find the lost ''Titan'' and restore hope to humanity, all the while hunted by the Drej.

''Titan A.E.'' was mildly well received by critics, but unfortunately it was a commercial disaster, leading to the closure of Fox Animation Studios, and proved to be the final nail in the coffin for [[CreatorKiller Bluth's already floundering career]]. In a case of DuelingMovies, the superficially similar ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' released around the same time also flopped badly, taking [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation funding]] for traditional WesternAnimation along with it. A variety of explanations for the film's failure have been suggested:

Threatened by humanity's potential, the Drej, a race of energy beings, EnergyBeings, attack and destroy Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* OctopoidAliens: Cale Tucker gets a serving of alien spaghetti and meatballs in the scrapyard's commissary: the spaghetti resembles boiled kelp, and the meatballs are small creatures that once had tentacles, but these were obviously chopped off. Despite this handicap, they hop around madly on Cale's plate, perhaps sensing their impending doom.

* PettingZooPeople: Most of the alien designs are like this, so they rather come off as typical children's cartoon {{talking animal}}s, until they start shooting people, getting their necks broken, and so on. It's all part of the film's split personality.
