A young adventurer named Milo Thatch joins an intrepid group of explorers to find the mysterious lost continent of Atlantis.
It was reported in 2002 that when the "Submarine Voyage" attraction was closed down in Disneyland, it was to re-open with the theme of this film. However, due to negative feedback from some critics, the idea was scrapped.
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. Only Atlanteans of royal lineage can live for thousands of years (for every 300 years, a royal Atlantean ages one); non-royal Atlanteans have a standard lifespan only slightly augmented by the crystals. It would only take three or four generations for the language to become lost.
The Walt Disney Pictures logo is embossed onto steel.
On the DVD version, there is an alternate prologue in which Vikings from Iceland attempt to find Atlantis but are destroyed by the Leviathan.
