(Or “conlangs,” to use the specialist term.)
Now, many of us are familiar with languages invented for works of fiction, especially science fiction and fantasy—such as Tolkien’s Elvish, or Star Trek’s Klingon.
But it only recently occurred to me that there have actually been some in works produced by Disney, of all places. I’ve counted at least two—Marc Okrand’s Atlantean from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire,” and an alphabet and some spoken Barsoomian was developed for 2012’s “John Carter.”
And, heck, technically, even the Indiana Jones ride in Disneyland has a cipher text “ancient language” on the walls.
Now it’s entirely possible that those were the only examples of any kind of effort in the history of the Disney canon—and they were from sad underperformers, at that—but, out of curiosity, I thought I’d consult the finer minds here to see if anyone could recall any others.
Obscure properties are fine—but I’m specifically excluding languages from Star Wars and Marvel works. Anything else is fairer game, including gimmicky cipher texts.
So…is there anything else out there?
