From the directors of Disney's ALADDIN and THE LITTLE MERMAID comes a fantastic story of courage, friendship and self-discovery. Now, for the first time on Blu-ray, share this Academy Award(R)-nominated classic (Best Animated Feature Film, 2002) with your family as you travel across the universe to discover an exciting world full of fun. Robert Louis Stevenson's TREASURE ISLAND gets a futuristic twist in this amazing tale of a brave young man's thrilling journey to new frontiers aboard a flying ship. The greatest adventure of all time is now even better on Blu-ray. TREASURE PLANET 10th Anniversary Edition is a new experience for a new generation!
A pet project of Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Hercules codirectors Ron Clements and John Musker, Treasure Planet is an ambitious animation hybrid (traditional animation combined with elaborate CGI backgrounds). It was the subject of numerous in-studio battles, but Disney office politics and a poor public reception distracted from its many admirable qualities, not the least being its overall fidelity to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Treasure Island. Curiously revamped as a sci-fi adventure with spacefaring galleons, flintlock ray guns, and extreme-sports attitude, it caters to an young audience for whom Stevenson's adventure is an unknown quantity, revving up the material with arcade-game excitements. It's entertaining, for what it is, and kids will surely enjoy it. Maybe next time, however, Disney will follow its own legacy and properly adapt Stevenson (as they did with their 1950 live-action classic) for a new, and hopefully receptive, generation. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product Description
