Manufacturer Description

Disney's animated sci-fi version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure tale 'Treasure Island'. When he is given a star map with directions to a remote planet where space pirates store their treasure, Jim Hawkins realises this is his chance to embark on a life of adventure and signs himself up as a crew member on the spaceship R.L.S. Legacy. The Legacy soon blasts off in search of the Treasure Planet, but it is not long before rumours of mutiny begin to spread, with the part-cyborg Long John Silver leading the way.Based on: The novel 'Treasure Island' by Robert Louis Stevenson Technical Specs: Anamorphic (16:9)Languages(s): English, German, FrenchHard of Hearing Subtitles: EnglishSubtitles: Dutch, German, Castilian Spanish, FrenchInteractive MenuScene AccessScreen ratio 1:1.665.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, High Definition Extras included: Bonus Footage'Disney's Animation Magic' hosted by Roy Disney

Treasure Planet, a pet project of Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Hercules codirectors Ron Clements and John Musker, 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 shouldn't distract one 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 space-faring galleons, flintlock ray guns and extreme-sports attitude, it caters to a young audience for whom Stevenson's adventure is an undiscovered treasure, 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 Shannon
