Trivia / Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

  • Box Office Bomb: The biggest in DreamWorks Animation's history, it lost the studio $125 million.
  • Genre-Killer: The film's low financial success caused Dreamworks to abandon 2D animation completely, turning to CGI movies such as Shrek. Interestingly, the 2002 Treasure Planet did the exact same thing to Disney, causing them to leave traditional animation for the Computer-generated variety. These two events combined might be why this blend of animation has never been seen since. However, as mentioned above, both movies have since achieved moderate "cult hit" status, suggesting there might be some other reason for their less-than-stellar financial performance.
