- Feeling nostalgic today
5 minutes in and I remember why this is one of my childhood favorites
And all the voices!!
"Atlantis: The Lost Empire" 2001
-directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise
A young adventurer named Milo Thatch joins an intrepid group of explorers to find the mysterious lost continent of Atlantis.
Michael J. Fox as Milo Thatch
James Garner as Rourke
John Mahoney as Preston Whitmore
Jim Varney as Cookie
Corey Burton as Moliere
Claudia Christian as Helga
Phil Morris as Dr. Sweet
Don Novello as Vinny
Jacqueline Obradors as Audrey
Florence Stanley as Mrs. Packard
Cree Summer as Princess Kida
Leonard Nimoy as King *
Marc Okrand, who created the Atlantean language, also created the Vulcan and Klingon languages for the "Star Trek" franchise
Upon designing the city of Atlantis, the filmmakers wanted to avoid the concept of Atlantis as "crumbled Greek columns underwater". Instead, they modelled their Atlantis on forms of architecture such as Southeast Asian and Mayan works.
After Milo gets seasick on the first ship, his line, "Carrots? Why are there always carrots? I didn't even eat carrots!" was ad-libbed by Michael J. Fox.
During the campfire scene, Milo comments that the Shepherd's Journal cuts off, like there's a page missing. This mirrors how, in real-life, Plato's narrative about Atlantis cuts off mid-sentence, because the rest of the manuscript has been lost.
Kirk Wise said that they chose Michael J. Fox for the role, because they felt he gave his character his own personality and made him more believable on-screen.

Jim Varney passed away on February 12th 2000 at age 50 due to lung cancer from smoking, before the production ended, and the film was dedicated to his memory. Producer Don Hahn was saddened that Varney never saw the finished film, but mentioned that he was shown clips of his character's performance during his site sessions and said, "He loved it." 🎬✌🎥
