An inexperienced young adventurer becomes the key to unravelling an ancient mystery when he joins up with a group of daredevil explorers to find the legendary lost empire of Atlantis.

At the centre of Disney's exciting new animated feature is naive-but-determined museum cartographer Milo Thatch (voiced by Michael J Fox), who dreams of completing the quest begun by his late Grandfather, a famous explorer. When a long lost journal surfaces, providing new clues to the location, and an eccentric billionaire agrees to fund an expedition, the action shifts into high gear. Milo ultimately leads Captain Rourke (voiced by James Garner) and his team to the elusive undersea kingdom, but what they find there defies their expectations and triggers an explosive series of events that only Milo can resolve.
