5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Planet: 10th Anniversary Edition (blu ray)...good audio/video transfer...a great addition to my blu ray library!
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not dreadful, but not underrated
Certainly a much better film than I had anticipated, I thought it was gonna be awful from the look of the trailer. But I was very surprised. I actually didn't mind it in the end, but unlike the previous release, Lilo and Stitch, Treasure Planet lacked the urge to make me want to buy it or watch it again. I love to watch any Disney film that's designed to make people...

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Planet: 10th Anniversary Edition (blu ray)...good audio/video transfer...a great addition to my blu ray library!,
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.
Treasure Planet was nominated for Best Animated Feature Oscar in 2002, but lost to Spirited Away from Japan.
It has an estimated budget of $140 million and $40 million for advertisement, but only grossed $101 million worldwide.
The name of the ship, "R.L.S. Legacy" is a reference to the book's ("Treasure Island") author, Robert Louis Stevenson.
Did you notice a Mickey Mouse figurine on one of young Jim's bedroom shelves as Sarah talks to him while he reads?
I bought Treasure Planet as part of the purchase, including The Lorax 3D blu ray which has dropped to a ridiculously low $24.97, in order to qualify for free shipping. I did not regret. It was an enjoyable 95 minutes. With a great audio/video transfer and plenty of actions, this 10th Anniversary Edition is highly recommended.
I hope the above review is helpful to you.
5.0 out of 5 stars New to me, loved it!,

4.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking Disney Tale that nobody knows exists!,
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Steampunk for Kids,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)This movie is almost too alternative to be Disney. This is a total steampunk offering, which is true to the spirit of RL Stevenson, if not the literal details of the original book. I also think that attempting to turn the novel now into a children's movie would be a failure - in a culture now immersed in the Pirate's franchise, the classic tale would come off as a poor cousin, with no ghosts or magic to its name.
This is one of the few Disney movies with strong males, in various moral shades from the youthful, rebellious hero to the very grey almost-villain. My kids love this movie - all four of them, two girls and two boys. The adventure is far more exciting than most North American animation, and unlike the truly atrocious Atlantis movie, the plot and dialogue are clearly comprehensible, and the characters are engaging.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Forgotten Disney Movie,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)Cool characters and setting. Enjoyable for the whole family. its a shame no one remembers it
5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure of Treasure Planet,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)Looking for exciting adventure with humour, then Treasure Planet is it. The unique idea of travelling in space in such a way pulls you into the story. The characters capture your heart, even the ones you don't expect to. Treasure Planet is worth adding to your library. It is an adventure for old and young alike.
5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Delightful,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)I'm a fan of most Disney movies, but when previews for Treasure Planet first came out, I raised my eyebrows and decided that this one was a miss.
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good family movie,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)I watched this movie with my three daughters and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has some good adult humour (though not to the same extent of Disney films like The Incredibles or Chicken Little). The story is good; it is a remake/re-visioning of a somewhat classic novel after all. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with small kids, but I don't recommend paying more than $10 or $15 for it; try to buy it used.
4.0 out of 5 stars I do like it,
This review is from: Treasure Planet (Bilingual) (DVD)Really. The soundtrack...characterizations (especially Captain Amelia and Doppler.) I don't mind things like breathing in space...or the solar sails, or even Martin Short's screaming. I dunno what it is...I like the movie. It has a few great moments, like Amelia telling Doppler "again Doctor, with the greatest respect--shut your howling screamer".
Pretty pricey though, for a money-loser!
