  1. Disney's updated, animated version respects its source material while aiming at kids who grew up with extreme sports and edgy music.
  2. Boasts the purest of Disney raptures: It unites the generations, rather than driving them apart.

    If Treasure Planet falls short of "Lion King's" classic status, it still proves there is plenty of room in animation for movies that aren't geared exclusively to 8-year-olds.
  4. There's no mistaking the fact that this hybrid misses the impact of the Disney classic, and even that of the excellent 1934 MGM version. Both of these films are surprisingly hard-edged and every bit as thrilling -- and scary -- as Stevenson's 1883 novel.

    An innovative -- if only moderately entertaining -- spin on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island.

    The film's total appeal may be undercut by a script that rarely feels inspired.
  7. The delicate magic of, for instance, Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away," which Disney released earlier this fall, is absent from this brainless, mechanical picture.

This is by far one of the best I know that a 10 out of 10 rating might seem a little overzealous, but I honestly believe it deserves it. This is by far one of the best Disney films ever made. It spans both the "classics" era and the "new animation" era beautifully. It manages to have a level of depth that entices older viewers, while it stays kid friendly by having a basic plot that's easy to follow and humor that they can understand. It has a phenomenal cast and an outstanding soundtrack. I don't understand the reasoning behind the bad reviews this movie gets, but it definitely doesn't deserve it. It's a shame that it managed to slip through the cracks between the other kid movies that came out around the same time, and it deserves much more recognition than it has gotten. This movie is absolutely wonderful and I recommend it to anyone who likes Disney, old or new, enjoys good music, has ever been underestimated, and has dared to follow their dreams and prove themselves.

Even if something is on the screen for less than a couple of seconds, whether it be the whirring of John Silver's cyborg arm or the huge bird things on the moon base thingy, It looks absolutely AMAZING! I liked it, mainly for the visuals, and the idea of Treasure Island In Space. Expand

    i think this film has ben severely underrated i really like how the film handles the relationship between John Silver and Jim Hawkins asi think this film has ben severely underrated i really like how the film handles the relationship between John Silver and Jim Hawkins as similar to a father and son and the other characters are pretty decent too with the exception of B.E.N.

    it has it's issues with the design choices but i loved the animation and the voice acting is great, it doesn't change too much from what made treasure island great (apart from the obvious) and i would love to see the movie get more respect

This film isIt may not be Disney's greatest masterpiece, but I strongly urge every Disney fan to see this movie at least once to support it. This film is beautifully made, it has great visuals for a 2-dimensional animated film and I like the whole concept of it being a space themed version of the classic novel Treasure Island. Unfortunately this film was a flop in the box-office and it's such a shame that not a lot of people gave this movie a chance; so I insist that you to see this film if you haven't already. This is a misunderstood film that you should see. Expand

    Ehhh...Kinda out of the point, but still "Treasure Planet" is a well made decent animation you'll survive.

    Instead of opting for a movie called "Treasure Island," Disney made the ridiculous mistake of making this pile of gimmicky garbage calledInstead of opting for a movie called "Treasure Island," Disney made the ridiculous mistake of making this pile of gimmicky garbage called "Treasure Planet." Personally, I blame this movie for destroying 2-d animated movies in the early 2000s, and I was really disappointed by Ron Clements and John Musker here, considering they've created the masterpieces "Aladdin" and "The Little Mermaid." Thankfully, they and Disney were able to redeem themselves by creating "The Princess and the Frog." Expand
