30 whole years! Could you believe it?! Today finally marks the 30-year anniversary of animated film "An American Tail," which was released on November 21, 1986 by Universal and produced by Don Bluth and Steven Spielberg as a collaboration for his first animated feature.



The film tells the story of mouse named Fievel Mousekewitz and his family as they emigrate from Russia to the United States for freedom. However, he gets lost and must find a way to reunite with them while running into all sorts of danger throughout his adventure.

During it's theatrical run An American Tail has grossed up to $47 million in the United States, also known as the domestic box office, and $84 million worldwide. At the time of its domestic release, it became the highest-grossing non-Disney produced animated feature at the time. It was also one of the first animated films to outdraw a Disney one, beating out The Great Mouse Detective (another traditionally animated film involving mice that was released in 1986 but four months earlier) by over US $22 million. (That's quite a feat to accomplish!)



5 years later a sequel to the film was produced titled "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West" was produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblimation animation studio and released by Universal Pictures. Marking it's 25th anniversary it was released was released in the United States on November 22, 1991, exactly five years and one day after the release of the original American Tail film, and the same day as Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Because of having different directors and a different animation team working on it, it differs considerably from the first film, in both look and tone.

While didn't perform as well as the first film in terms of box office and critical response, it was popular enough to gain a cult following. Fievel would later served as the mascot for Steven Spielberg's Amblimation studio, appearing in its production logo at end of the credits.

From 1986 to 2016, An American Tail still remains an amazing animated classic. Who know what new adventures will await for everyone's favorite Jewish mouse! Only time will tell.

Looks cool. Almost looks like a test scene from the movie itself.

Indeed, it does. Do you think you might take inspiration from it for a future animation project?
