For Atlantis, Disney needed a new language for the Atlantean people. To do this, Disney hired Mark Okrand, the man who also created the famous Klingon and Vulcan for the Star Trek series. In the Atlantean language, Mark Okrand’s main source for it’s roots and stems of its words are Proto-Indo-European,but as Okrand also described it as being the “tower of babel” or “root dialect” for all languages in the world, he also used ancient Chinese, Latin, Greek, Biblical Hebrew, along with many other ancient languages or their reconstructions. As such, you can actually learn to write and speak the language!
This film is so underrated it hurts.
ah this explains how they understood french and english so well almost instantly… better than the magical wind in Pocahontas that’s for sure
Man, don’t you just wish Atlantis took off as a sci-fi franchise for Disney just so all that world building they did between this and Subterranean Tours could have found more use?
Super-Awesome Sylvia interviewed for Girls in ICT Day! She says tech is important to her because “you can shape your future, you can shape your world.” Awesome!
This is like a guy at my work who told me how it was weird I didn’t seem scared to be there by myself with him….well I wasn’t until you said that.

Credits to DCinside Frozen Gallery
Daenerys’ Dragons → RhaegalRhaegal has green and bronze scales. His green scales are a dark green, the green of moss in the deep woods at dusk, just before the light fades, and they gleam like jade. His eyes are bronze, brighter than polished shields, and they glow with their own heat. His flame is orange-and-yellow fire shot through with veins of green.
Daenerys’ dragons → Viserion
The majority of Viserion’s scales are cream, but his horns, wing bones and spinal crest are gold colored. His teeth are shining black daggers. His eyes are two pools of molten gold and his flame is pale gold shot through with red and orange. Viserion has a roar that would send a hundred lions running. Although his true color is cream he is often referred to as the white dragon. He knows his name.
Daenerys’ Dragons → Drogon
Drogon, the largest and most agressive of the three, is believed to be the reincarnation of Balerion the Black Dread, but Daenerys decides to give him a new name for his new life. Drogon’s scales are black, his horns and spinal plates are blood red, and his eyes are smoldering red pits. Drogon’s flame is black fire shot with red and the wash of its heat can be felt 30 feet away. His wing flap sounds like the clap of thunder.
