I recently saw the movie Titan A.E., and whilst being a mildly enjoyable bit of cartoon escapism, what struck me immediately was, to a remarkable degree, the similarity to the game Freelancer.

Was one an official tribute to, or tie in, of the other?


There is no known official connection between Titan A.E. and Freelancer other than that they both have a similar plot. While they were released within a few years of each other, the production companies of the two separate works, Fox Animation Studios and Digital Anvil, don't appear to have any connections.

It maybe that one work influenced the author(s) of the other work, which is one of the typical ways writing tropes evolve.
