A young adventurer named Milo Thatch joins an intrepid group of explorers to find the mysterious lost continent of Atlantis.
The wave shown near the end of the movie, on the vase The Mole digs into, is a reference to a famous art work by Hokusai; The Great Wave off Kanagawa.
On Screen Text:
"... in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea." - Plato, 360 B.C.
After Milo reads Atlantean, Kida reveals that the Atlantean language has been lost for thousands of years. But as Atlanteans can themselves live for several thousands of years, there should be plenty still alive that could read the language since before it was supposedly "lost."
