A futuristic twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Treasure Planet follows restless teen Jim Hawkins on a fantastic journey across the universe as cabin boy aboard a majestic space galleon. Befriended by the ship's charismatic cyborg cook, John Silver, Jim blossoms under his guidance and shows the makings of a fine shipmate as he and the alien crew battle a supernova, a black hole, and a ferocious space storm.

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.
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.
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.
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
