Intrepid reporter Edward Malone decides to investigate the claims of Professor Challenger, a temperamental but brilliant scientist, that dinosaurs still exist deep in the jungles of South America. Soon, they, along with Challenger’s unenthusiastic colleague Professor Summerlee, and the adventurer Lord John Roxton, embark on a journey to this land frozen in time. Here, they come across ferocious flying dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures as well as an equally ferocious tribe of ape-like people, who feel threatened and are determined to destroy the travellers. What follows is a tale of nail-biting adventure as the band of explorers tries to escape this lost world.
