Creator Twinz is a 2000 American animated drama comedy film produced by MTV Films and Paramount Pictures. The sixth feature film from MF and the fifth from MTV Films, it was directed and co-written by Henry Carter and co-written and produced by Jerry Goden; it was also MTV Films' first film produced under its current name. The film follows four high school students who are discovered by an organization called TWEN, when they discover they have wisdom they must use to stop the evil organization Big Broster.
The film satirizes controversies surrounding video games during the mid to late 1990s. Henry Carter originally conceived the idea for the plot in 1998, but kept the piece of paper that he wrote it down on in an "idea bin". Eventually, he told his co-worker John C. about it, who was interested in the idea and was encouraged to help him adapt it into a film. The film's score was composed by Jerry Goldsmith.
Creator Twinz premiered in Los Angeles on July 7, 2000, and was released in the United States on August 4, 2000. It received mixed to positive reviews from critics, who praised its animation, characters, and humor, but was criticized by some for being somewhat derivative. The film earned $121.3 million worldwide over its $26 million budget, making it the sixth highest-grossing animated film of 2000, and was later released on DVD and VHS on December 18, 2000, and on Blu-ray on June 5, 2007.
