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.

Synopsis
In this adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's TREASURE ISLAND, Disney presents a fantastic space adventure. Jim Hawkins (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a teenage boy with a taste for adventure who seems to always be in trouble, much to the chagrin of his hardworking mother (Laurie Metcalf). But when he comes into possession of a high-tech map leading to Treasure Planet where an ancient cache of jewels and gold lies buried, it's like a dream come true. His mother's friend Doctor Doppler (David Hyde Pierce) arranges for a ship, and the two set sail, traversing the universe on course for the treasure. Captain Amelia (Emma Thompson), a domineering feline, is in charge of a rough-and-tumble crew of odd creatures, who may have their own designs on the treasure. Jim is placed under the supervision of John Silver (Brian Murray), the cook, who is both his father figure and his adversary. Slowly but surely the ship makes its way toward its destination, as Jim comes of age, learning to follow his heart, do what's right, and be a leader.

With stunning computer animation that combines both space and sea elements, TREASURE PLANET called upon the skills of 350 artists, animators, and technicians. The result is dazzling, colorful, and fast-moving, with some very realistic-looking creatures including variations on spiders, robots, and whales.

"...Most noteworthy is the artful way it combines the futuristic and the retro..."

Variety
"...TREASURE PLANET starts with the clever idea of transforming the story into an old-fashioned space opera, and the animated visuals are handily up to the studio's best..."
