20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea In 1867, Professor Aronnax, renowned marine biologist, is summoned by the Navy to identify the mysterious sea creature that has disabled a steamship in the North Atlantic. His daughter Sophie, also a brilliant marine biologist, disguised as a man, comes as her father's assistant.

After days of voyaging, they finally discover what they set out to find. The 'sea creature' is actually a sleek futuristic submarine, named Nautilus, commanded by Captain Nemo. Over time, Aronnax learns Nemo was destined to be King, but was forced from his land by his enemies. Now, he is hoping to halt shipping between the United States and Europe as a way of regaining his throne.

When the Nautilus ventures into the Caribbean, it is attacked by a giant squid. Now, Aronnax and company must not only escape the clutches of tyrannical Captain Nemo, but also the tentacles of the giant squid. With only a hafl-day's worth of oxygen left with the Nautilus, they must band together and face grave challenges if they are to live to see dry land again.
