A young linguist named Milo Thatch joins an intrepid group of explorers to find the mysterious lost continent of Atlantis.
Milo Thatch is the first male hero in a full-length Disney animated film to wear glasses.
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 end credits are roll on a steel background.
On the DVD version, there is an alternate prologue in which Vikings from Iceland attempt to find Atlantis but are destroyed by the Leviathan.
