In our real world, Amblin Entertainment's animation studio, Amblimation, closed its doors in 1997 after only producing three animated films.

So let's see if we think of that studio if it remained open for years to come in this alternate universe theory.

Differences between the real life version and alternate reality version

  • Amblimation would be founded in 1984, during the production of An American Tail.
  • An American Tail, The Land Before Time and MGM/United Artists' All Dogs Go to Heaven (the latter which would've been produced during Steven Spielberg's partnership with Don Bluth) would've been Amblimation's first three feature films.
    • Amblimation would not have its on-screen production logo until All Dogs Go to Heaven.
  • Don Bluth's animated short film Banjo the Woodpile Cat would be remade into a feature film.
  • The Nutcracker Prince would've been co-produced by Amblimation.
  • Don Bluth would've been involved as a creative consultant on An American Tail: Fievel Goes West and as a director (with Simon Wells) on The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure.
    • In addition, Sullivan Bluth Studios would've co-produced both films.
    • The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure would've premiered in 1992 as a theatrical film (instead of 1994 as a direct-to-video film) and had a much different plot in the alternate reality version (alhough remaining its light-hearted tone and musical numbers).
  • All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 (which would be produced by Amblimation) would've took place in 1940, a year after where the first film took place (rather than present day), and David, a boy from the real life version of the film, would be replaced by Anne-Marie from the first film.
  • Balto would perform much better at the box office.
  • The Little Rascals would've been an animated film rather than a live-action film (due to its cartoony nature).
    • The Wind in the Willows (1996), The Adventures of Pinocchio, Matilda, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, The Cat in the Hat, The BFG, and The House with a Clock in its Walls (which were all live-action films in real-life) would also be animated (despite different reasons).
    • Unlike the real life live-action film versions, The Little Rascals, The Adventures of Pinocchio, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, The Cat in the Hat, The BFG, and The House with a Clock in its Walls would've been more critically and commercially successful.
    • Some scenes in The Cat in the Hat, The BFG and The House with a Clock in its Walls are toned down in the alternate reality version.
  • Cats (the real life cancelled project that Amblimation had planned before shutting down) would've been produced and released in 1997.
    • However, it will have a 2019 live-action remake film.
    • This animated film would've came close in terms of matching the same critical and financial success that the Disney Renaissance films have made.
    • Starting with Cats, the Amblin Entertainment logo would appear at the start of the movie (except for The Road to El Dorado, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, and The Cat in the Hat, which would have the DreamWorks Pictures logo), while the Amblimation logo would appear at the end of the movie (after the credits).
  • The An American Tail, The Land Before Time and Balto direct-to-video sequels would've been produced by Amblimation.
  • The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas would've been co-produced and co-animated by DreamWorks Animation.
    • Since our reality's Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron had animals not talking (even though Spirit does the narration), the AU version of the film would have animals talk.
  • Animaniacs: Wakko's Wish would be released on The WB as a television film.
    • In addition, three more Animaniacs TV films would be released on The WB in 2001, 2003, and 2005.
  • There would be an animated film adaptation of Flat Stanley in 2004.
  • Amblimation would've remastered its on-screen logo in 2008. It would later be reanimated in 2014 for the studio's 30th anniversary.
    • While Fievel Mousekewitz from An American Tail would be the studio's mascot during 1989 and the 1990s, he would be later accompanied by Tanya and Tiger in 2008, and joined by Itchy Itchiford from All Dogs Go to Heaven in 2014.
  • Hoodwinked!, its 2011 sequel Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, Horton Hears a Who!, 3 Pigs and a Baby (under the name The Three Little Pigs), the Kung Fu Panda films and the How to Train Your Dragon films, The Little Engine that Could, Rise of the Guardians, Trolls, its 2020 sequel Trolls World Tour, Smurfs: The Lost Village and UglyDolls would've been fully produced by this studio.
    • 3 Pigs and a Baby/The Three Little Pigs would release as a theatrical film, while Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil would be a direct-to-video film.
    • The Little Engine that Could would combine elements from both the 1991 and 2011 direct-to-video films.
    • Rise of the Guardians would be released in December, have a much better marketing campaign and would perform well at the box office, giving Amblimation an opportunity for a sequel that would release in 2018.
      • The sequel to Rise of the Guardians will take place several months after the first film.
    • Unlike the real life version, UglyDolls would've been more critically and commercially successful (although not successful enough to be followed by a sequel).
  • Green Eggs and Ham would be produced by Amblimation as an theatrical feature film instead of being produced by Warner Bros. Animation as a TV series, being a critical and commercial success.
  • With the exceptions of Hoodwinked!, Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, the How to Train Your Dragon films, The Adventures of Tintin, UglyDolls and Me and My Shadow (which uses both 2D and CGI animation), all of Amblimation's films are done in traditional animation.
  • Amblimation would have its own satellite studios in London, England (established in 1986), Los Angeles, California (established in 1993) and in the Universal Studios theme parks.
  • Some of the Amblimation staff would work on various projects outside of the studio.
  • Amblimation would've provided additional pre-production for The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie, The Tale of Despereaux and all of Illumination Entertainment films, as well as some of DreamWorks Animation films (2019-present).
