    I wasn't sure how this movie would turn out; I love classics and don't like when people mess with them (example, The Tale of Despereu and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, in which Disney destroyed the original) but I loved this movie so much!

    It had great relationships between the characters, and was different enough from the book Treasure Island (but still followed the plot really closely, details aside) that anytime the film changed something, it worked well. Once people learn to just deal with the idea of ships being used for space travel (it is not meant to be scientifically accurate) and enjoy their beauty, it just seems to work so nicely. There is one immature scene with a character called a flatula (if you've seen the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about) that reflects badly on the rest of the movie, but overall, this is one of my favorite animated movies ever, right alongside Tangled, Flushed Away and the Aristocats. I've watched it over and over. I enjoy that it is a little different from most disney films, and it seems such a shame it failed as a money-maker for disney, because this is a really fun movie.

    A hidden gem

    As a teenager, I can totally connect to Jim, because he's a normal guy who has issues with his mom and self-confidence, but he's still really likeable because he's a good guy and smart and brave. My favorite character was Captain Amelia, though. It was great to see a sassy, strong female character in a leadership role in a disney movie, especially since in animated movies, kids learn that girls should be pretty, thin and weak and need to be saved by the guys. I also thought silver was pretty cool, too. You should watch this movie. It's cool and funny.

    Fun view and intro of a classic story.

    This has been on of our family favorites for years, and when one of the older kids moved they "borrowed" it. When the youngest on came back from college and wanted to show some his theater kids this we had to go and find it again.
    The story is close to the orginal, but has some great turns and a few twists, but stays true to the classic. This version is set in the future in a time when there the pirates are space travelers going from planet to planet, instead of from island to island.
    I have been told that the movie is in the "steamtramp" style, which is one of the reasons the college/teen kids are so interested in watching it.
    The costumes, setting, and style is fun, and a nice blend of orginal and traditional. The sound track is enjoyable, but a little light.

    So underrated, better than it's been treated.

    One of Disney's attempts to trump up interest for the raft of the 2D cartoon, Treasure Planet boasts awesome production values, great characters and plot. In hindsight, it should have had more of the delightful wickedness Jerry Bruckheimer imbued the Pirates of the Caribeean movies, but this is a great movie notwithstanding. Also noteworthy that they experimteed mixing 3D effects on some of the high impact action scenes, which some people will say they copied from Princess Mononoke, but Disney actually started the trend itself way back in Aladdin. Anyway, not brilliant but great coming-of-age story.

    Great Movie!

    This is a heart-warming movie in the spirit of Rober Louis Stevenson's immortal classic treasure island. It retains many of hte themes in book and even magnifies a few that Stevenson touched only lightly upon. However, it is a childrens movie, in that the bad guys aren't really that bad (i.e. Silver is a much gentler pirate than in the book) and it introduces the interesting element of a troubled Jim Hawkins. Overall this is a terrific movie with great animation.
