About the Project:
An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island is the third installation in the American Tail series, after both An American Tail and An American Tail: Fievel Goes West and before An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster. It is also the second of the three “sequels” of the series. Of note is that the film takes place in New York, which either retcons the events in Fievel Goes West (in which the Mousekewitz family leaves New York), or just means that it takes place before said movie. This is addressed directly near the beginning of the film, when Fievel says he had a dream where he moved west.
An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster was the second direct-to-video sequel to An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island and the fourth final film in the An American Tail tetralogy, starring Thomas Alexander Dekker as the main character, the young Fievel Mousekewitz. This film was released on July 25, 2000. The ending of this film shows Fievel falling asleep which may mark that there wouldn’t be another American Tail film. It is also the third of the three “sequels” of the series
