While Walt Disney Co. has proven repeatedly that animated films can reach the highest box office echelons, no other studio has been able to duplicate that success. But with the potential payoff so huge--not just in ticket sales but in videos, merchandising and other areas--the major studios are embracing animation like never before.

Many industry veterans view video game development as a science. But to "Dragon's Lair" creators Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, it's an art form. With "Dragon's Lair 3D" due to be published by Blue Byte software later this year, the duo discussed their adventures in game development, which began with the original coin-op "Dragon's Lair" in 1983. Q: Why did "Dragon's Lair" strike such a resounding chord with gamers? Bluth: Our history lies with movies and storytelling.

If you think homelessness is a problem today, look closely at the initials at the end of "Titan A.E." They stand for After Earth, the time in the 31st century after our planet has been incinerated. That's right, humanity has been turned into the homeless people of the universe, forced to live on drifter colonies, junk heaps cobbled together from random pieces of intergalactic trash. It's not good not to have a home.

To add to your explanation of the meaning of the term ETAOIN SHRDLU (Letters, March 31), it should be noted that this series of letters was not arbitrarily chosen merely to catch the eye of the typesetter or whomever. They were chosen because they were the letters that were used with the greatest frequency in the English language, and in that order. I recall that Max Shulman named a character in one of his books Etaoin Shrdlu (quite fittingly an editor, I believe). He must have been a distant cousin of Al Capp's Joe Bftsplk.

Tall and lean, with the rough, good looks of a daredevil jet pilot, Steven Seagal is more than just a 6-foot-4 martial-arts wizard who can flip a man 5 feet in the air with a flick of his wrist. His fans proclaim that he's a star waiting to be born. And let's talk fans. Seagal has an enthusiastic film studio booster (Warner Bros.

Re Jim Mann's article, "Dealing With Conspiracy Theories and Rumors Is No Walk in the Park," Sept. 2: Regarding the German Air Force training in Arizona: The whole reason they train in Arizona is because of the weather and the wide open spaces. They have so many more "flying days" available than in Germany (the weather is often terrible for flight training), and the population density is far lower, allowing land-based supersonic flight, etc. I have a theory of my own: Most of the people that take these weird theories to heart subscribe to the "secret knowledge" syndrome (I know what's "really" going on)

Don Bluth's "Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelina" casts its spell so effectively that you don't even have to be a child to be swept away to its magical never-never land. Another success from Bluth and his partner Gary Goldman, whose previous animated hits include "The Secret of NIMH" and "An American Tail," it is a work of lilting pace and charm with an array of enjoyable rather than memorable songs, with lyrics by Jack Feldman and Bruce Sussman and music by Barry Manilow.
