    Megalania. 20 feet long (maybe), not tall. LOL. It's been extinct for maybe 50,000 years, exterminated in the "people came, set fire to everything that could burn, and killed the heck out of the wildlife" event in Australia.

    This was a big monitor lizard, real. See the link.

    There really was a lizard, a very large monitor even larger than a Komodo dragon. I think it may have been 20 feet long but not 20 feet tall. It was Megalania.

    This article suggests they were up to 23 feet long. What a monster it would have been.

    Melania is not a name associated with any reptile.

    The largest lizard alive is the Komodo dragon, slightly larger than the Nile monitor lizard. They don't chase humans.

    The Tegu monitor, smaller yet, is known to chase humans and larger animals.

    I think your movie lizard was a sci-fi monster movie,,not real.

    Real ones are often pets:

    Melania Trump is the wife of the president. The Varanus bitatawa is the largest lizard in the world that was discovered in trees in 2009.
