Set your course for the ultimate undersea adventure of discovery and amazement in this state-of-the-art 2-Disc DVD Collector's Edition. Begin your journey by exploring the action-and-effects packed 2D/3D animated feature and awe-inspiring extras on Disc One. Navigate through stunning, never-before-seen bonus features on Disc Two using one of three exclusive viewing modes, a historic first from Disney! Loaded to capacity with technical wizardry, this special Collector's Edition of ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE sets a course as one of Disney's most exciting DVD creations ever. The journey awaits!
Journey to the center of an animated feature with Disney's ingeniously engineered Special Edition. Taking a cue from The Matrix and Moulin Rouge, the commentary track by the directors and producer is enriched with an optional "Visual Commentary" feature, which whisks the viewers into behind the scenes featurettes on key sequences. Choose your own level of interaction in the second supplemental disc. "Tour" a comprehensive two-hour documentary with peeks at the wealth of additional materials you can "Explore" by theme or "File" through by topic. Among them: scores of design galleries, four cut sequences of varying completeness (including the fully animated original opening scene), a mythic mock history of the legendary "Shepherd's Journal" (complete with sample pages), and an Atlantean language primer by creator Mark Okrund. It's a journey almost as involved as Milo's, but a lot less tiring. --Sean Axmaker

The journal pages on disk 2 are very legible (compared to the movie) and contain actual Atlantean - just as Don Hahn said in an interview with ReelFilms.Com. And according to Okrand, the written Atlantean that appears in the film is the largest portion of the language exihibited anywhere (as opposed to speaking parts). Other interesting linguist features are "How to Speak Atlantean", the transcription of which can be found online at LangMaker.Com and in the book "Subterranean Tours" on page 61.
The "hub" and archives of most discipherment efforts is the Yahoo Tech Group The Atlantean Language Group. There's also a messy Wikipedia article and many low-profile online webpages. It's a historic conlang with a vocabulary that's primarily Proto-Indo-European and a grammar that's mostly Latin, only with post-positions and no variety in grammatical case endings: there's one declension and no grammatical gender.
Just make sure the DVD you order has no viruses before you send feedback. Mine has a virus that shuts down my computer for long periods of time.
The language is awesome. That's the only reason I'd buy a movie like this. The movie is highly Wiccan in influence and, as such, completely spiritually corrupt and lamentably geared toward children. Buyer, beware!
