Synopsis

Following the epic events of 2018’s Aquaman, the king of Atlantis returns with an action-packed sequel. The half-Atlantean, half-human must once again fulfil his royal duties. He is joined by Mera, princess of Xebel and the daughter of King Nereus.

The movie is based on the DC comics character of the same name. In DC comic book lore, the “Lost Kingdom” refers to the kingdom of Necrus – another domed city under the Earth's oceans that is facing a great threat.
