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

Treasure Planet arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.68:1 encode. Even lesser Disney animated feature films earn A-class treatments. This video transfer is almost perfect, with slight banding (the Etherium clouds in the opening shot). Colours are rich and radiant. Primaries are subdued but potent. Black levels are as dark and deep as a black hole (quite literally at the 42-minute mark). Contrast is consistent, with great detail. The animators' hand-drawn line art is crisp and refined. (4.5/5)
Treasure Planet sails the deadly Etherium seas with a brisk, spirited DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Fiery supernova debris hurtles past the bow of the RLS Legacy. A black hole roars and hisses as a helpless crew is dragging into its maw. Space whales glide alongside an astonished young man. A giant energy beam slices through the center of a planet and sends a sea of treasure hurtling into an opening abyss. And those are just some of Planet's more notable sonic showcases. Dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly prioritized throughout. (4.5/5)
A futuristic twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Treasure Planet follows restless teen Jim Hawkins on a fantastic journey across the universe as cabin boy aboard a majestic space galleon. Befriended by the ship's charismatic cyborg cook, John Silver, Jim blossoms under his guidance and shows the makings of a fine shipmate as he and the alien crew battle a supernova, a black hole, and a ferocious space storm. But even greater dangers lie ahead when Jim discovers that his trusted friend Silver is actually a scheming pirate with mutiny on his mind.Read more ›
A friend got me to watch this this past year, and surprisiningly, I loved it.
At its surface, Treasure Planet is about a teenaged boy with a dream to find the famed treasure of a thousand worlds from an infamous pirate, Treasure Planet.
At its heart, Treasure Planet is about a boy who wants to become a man, but has no one to guide him. The guide turns out to be Silver, the cook on the ship with plans to mutiny and steal all the treasure for himself.
Treasure Planet appeals to both boys and girls as a lot of young boys can much more easily relate to a male hero, and the plot itself appeals to both. Boys understand the confusion in the transition from a boy to a man, and girls can appreciate the father son relationship that Jim and Silver form.
I won't spoil the ending, but it was very satisfying. :)
The characters were all very satisfying, especially Jimmy, who I felt had more development and depth as a character than most Disney protagonists.
A wonderful and unappreciated family film, this will delight all ages and both sexes, and is definitely NOT a miss in anyone's movie collection.
Now it's not the best movie that Disney has ever made. It won't compete with the Lion King or Beauty and the Beast; but it's a heck of a lot better than what they were producing twenty years ago during their dark period. It's simply a high quality tale based on Treasure Island transposed to the future. In style and substance I'd call it similar to Titan A.E. (another vastly underated and forgotten movie) or Disney's own Atlantis, just not quite as good.
The Bluray is in a 1.66:1 widescreen format with an English 5.1 DTS-HD soundtrack. There are Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks in French, Spanish and Portuguese as well. The dvd is similar with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track.
Overall, I'd rate it between 3-1/2 to 4. Perfect for family viewing.
The legendary loot of a thousand worlds inspires an intergalactic treasure hunt when fifteen year old Jim Hawkins (Joseph Gorden-Levitt) stumbles upon a map to the greatest pirate trove in the universe. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island Classic novel, the film follows Jim's fantastic journey across a parallel universe as a cabin boy aboard a space-galleon. Blossoming under the guidance of the cyborg cook John Silver (Brian Murray), Jim and the alien crew battle supernovas, black holes and ferocious space storms on their quest for the gold, but none of this can compare to deadly dangers that lay ahead.
One can't help but recall the surrealism of Yellow Submarine when watching this film, as the characters and even the concept of wooden Galleons with engines large enough to put the Millennium Falcon to shame fill a universe of oddly proportioned aliens and robots. Indeed, ignoring the insanity of an open decked ship in the vacuum of space, one can't help but think the romance of a feline captain and a scientist with canine origins is a little more than disturbing. Yet this is Disney, and all is pure and good when it comes to cross breeding of two species.
Seriously, Treasure Planet is an enjoyable romp through Stevenson's original classic, and while purists may have palpitations at the liberties that have been taken with the source material, the bottom line is that it is a thoroughly enjoyable family film. Martin Short's portrayal of B.E.N., a robot with a short circuit, is hilarious and recalls memories of Robin Williams turn as the Genie in Aladdin.Read more ›
