Technical Specs


Did You Know?

This film was pitched to Disney by John Musker and Ron Clements several times: (1) In 1985, during production on The Black Cauldron, but they ended up assigned to direct The Great Mouse Detective. (2) After directing The Little Mermaid, but they ended up assigned to direct Aladdin. (3) After directing Aladdin, but the studio wanted them to direct Hercules. Musker and Clements agreed to direct that film only if they were allowed to make Treasure Planet right after it.

Continuity: Jim sits on top of the inn, eavesdropping on Dr. Doppler and his mother. He slides off the roof to meet the turtle-like alien who crashed out on a ledge. When Jim carries the alien back to the inn from its ship, they are on a dirt road much further away.

[first lines]
Narrator: On the clearest of nights, when the winds of the Etherium were calm and peaceful, the great merchant ships, with their cargos of Arcturian solar crystals, felt safe and secure. Little did they suspect that they were persued by... pirates. And the most feared of all these pirates was the notorious Captain Nathaniel Flint.

User Review


Rating: 9/10

I loved T.P from the first time I saw the preview. I went to see it with my friends and we were just dazzled by the brilliance of the story. (sorry about my cruddy spelling)I instantly took a liking to young Jim Hawkins and the charming John Silver, and fell in love with the wonderful animation. It's been three years since the movie came out, and I'm still crazy about it. I've watched it over 300 times. It is truly wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes real honest to god animated movies.

About the Disney's biggest flop thing, chill out people. That's no reason not to watch the movie. It's simply a mater of opinion. If you don't like the outer space theme, or whatever, then don't watch it. Just don't go around discrediting it....There are fans of the movie out there, lots of them, so just CHILL!

Hope I was at least a little helpful! -Blackbird
