I don’t usually comment on posts but FUN RANDOM DISNEY FACT : before Scar got his Scar (which was given to him by a wildebeest after an incident involving Mufasa) his name was Taka. He requested to be called Scar after this incident because he is a very over-dramatic lion as we already know! The source for this fact is from the Lion King novel series.
Damn you learn something everyday.
EXCUSE ME THERE IS A LION KING NOVEL SERIES EXCUSE ME EXCUSE MEEEE
Another fun fact: I just looked it up and in Swahili, taka means garbage.
So their parents named them literally “King” and “Garbage” omfg that’s so awful xD
that’s so MEAN NO WONDER GARBAGE WANTED TO KILL HIS FAMILY
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?
Just think about this though:
Disney could’ve just built Atlantis land in Animal Kingdom with a property they already had the rights to instead of buying fucking Avatar for however much money they spent.
Haha, I got to see him speak this summer and IIRC, how he put it was essentially “they told me I had to come up with a language that was ‘the root of all languages’ and I was like, that makes no sense, but hey whatever I can do it”. But he kept stressing how it was a ridiculous idea really and language doesn’t work like that etc, it was great.
So kudos to him for taking such a silly concept and sort of making it work.
