Overview

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of adventure Treasure Island gets a science fiction update in this animated feature from Walt Disney Pictures. Jim voice of Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a young man who grew up reading tales of pirates and adventures on the high seas, and longs for similar excitement in his own life. One day, Jim happens upon a dying man who hands him a map and warns him to "Beware the cyborg" shortly before he passes on. Upon careful examination, Jim realizes the map charts the course to Treasure Planet, a distant world where hundreds of space pirates have stashed their loot. Jim is certain this is the adventure he's been dreaming of, and joins the crew of the spaceship R.L.S. Legacy and Captain Amelia Emma Thompson as they set out to find the fabled Treasure Planet. While Jim signs on along with his friend Dr. Doppler voice of David Hyde Pierce, he soon becomes close friends with John Silver voice of Brian Murray, who works in the galley but has big plans. Jim discovers just how big his plans are when Silver reveals he's part cyborg and all pirate, instigating a mutiny and attempting to take control of the ship. Despite his friendship with Silver, Jim refuses to take part in the mutiny, and soon finds himself attempting to defend law and order against a spacecraft full of reckless men. Treasure Planet's voice cast also includes Michael Wincott and Martin Short; Johnny Rzeznik from the rock group The Goo Goo Dolls contributed new music for the soundtrack.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of Disney's most ambitious animated undertakings (reportedly 17 years in development), this Oscar-nominated adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure was buried at the box office but is definitely worth discovering on home video. The basic story has captivated generations, fueling live-action versions by Victor Fleming in 1934 and Walt Disney in 1950, and even a puppet-action version in 1996 (Muppet Treasure Island), among others. In an attempt to avoid the box-office poison inherent in the words "pirate movie," Disney gave Stevenson's tale a futuristic spin, setting an alienated young man, Jim Hawkins, on a space-age collision course with aliens. It begins when Jim comes into possession of a virtual treasure map to the fabled Treasure Planet, said to hold "the loot of a thousand worlds." The film's Long John Silver is a cyborg (voiced by stage veteran Brian Murray), and he's at once nemesis and mentor to Jim -- with an artificial Cuisinart arm, to boot (he's also cook aboard the spaceship Legacy). David Hyde Pierce gives voice to family friend Dr. Doppler, a fussy, doglike creature, and Emma Thompson voices Legacy's formidable feline commander, Captain Amelia. Martin Short's marooned robot, B.E.N., is no match for Robin Williams's Genie, but he still generates most of the film's laughs. The animation, which seamlessly combines traditional hand-drawn characters and computer-generated backgrounds, is out-of-this-world. An opening solar board sequence is a universe beyond the tree-surfing shots in Tarzan. The DVD edition contains considerable plunder for animation buffs, including illuminating "visual commentary" by directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin), and several segments that chart the film's evolution.

    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.

    Its been my favorite for 3 years now!

    Ever since I saw the previews of this movie in the 6th grade, I have loved it. When I watched it in the theatres I loved every second! And when I got the movie I watched it every single day until I graduated Elementary school. And now that it has been 3 years since it came to theatres it has been my all time favorite movie. This movie really is underappreciated. It's a beautiful piece of artwork and should be terrished. I know that it takes a futuristic twist to the classic Treasure Island but I beleive that it makes it more interresting. I mean when you see that scene when Jim is on his solar surfer you just feel for jim or the part where silver encourages Jim, you believe every word for yourself! You can take my word for it or not but this movie has beautiful animation, beautiful music and is just a beautiful work of art! It's up their with all of the disney classics.

    Best Disney Movie Ever!!!!

    I rented ''Treasure Planet'' only a couple days ago but I already think that it is the best animated Disney movie ever made.It's got just about everything in it:adventure,action, comedy,and even an unusual romance between feline Capt. Amelia and canine Dr. Doppler.My favorite character was Jim Hawkins because he was different from most Disney heroes.He's not nerdy,perfect,or shy.Jim's troubled, risky,and rebellious(but with a heart).I found that interesting and cool.Jim' solar surfing is pretty cool,too!The movie itself was very emotional.For example,at parts like when Jim thought he killed Mr. Arrow and when he found out Silver betrayed him,I almost cryed.Some other things that I liked about ''Treasure Planet'' was the animation and music.All together ''Treasure Planet'' is an exciting,funny,scary,and moving Disney movie. It's the best!

    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.

    bravo disney

    almost every aspect of this great animated film is amazing. the music, the cast, the way the plot is presented, everything. as a lover of the original treasure island and all of robert louis stevenson's book, disney did a great job of portraying the plot in a new and interesting way without ruining the story. without a doubt, it is my favorite disney movie. i wish more people knew about this masterpiece. it is really worth seeing, again and again.
    congrats to disney for this stellar piece of work!

    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.

    too hoolywood, boring plot

    The story lacked the magic of many of the past disney films and seemed to try to integrate too much popular music that did not seem to go with the film. In many of the segments I felt as though I was watching a poorly planned out music video. Where is the ''magic'' disney?

    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.
