Walt Disney's Treasure Planet movie sets sail for loot with pirates, robots, aliens and more. Check out Kidzworld's Treasure Planet review here!

Disney remade the classic tale Treasure Island with Treasure Planet. They took all the 'yo-ho-ho' and 'avast ye swabs' attitude of pirate legends and stuffed it full of Star Wars sci-fi and aliens. The movie is all about young Jim Hawkins (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Third Rock From the Sun) finding a map to a legendary pirate treasure horde. The next thing you know, the solar-boarding wiz kid is on a ship to the far reaches of the galaxy to load up on more booty than he can carry!

Disney's Treasure Planet mixes regular hand-drawn animation with computer animation to create a gorgeous movie. Everything from the depths of space to the ships, planets and spaceports looks absolutely wicked. The characters are a little rough around the edges, but have a lot of life to them. Especially when it comes to attitude. Captain Amelia (Emma Thompson,) the cat-like captain of the RLS Legacy, has style and grace. The cyborg, John Silver, is a big brute with more metal parts than a Ford pickup truck. And Jim Hawkins' buddy, Professor Doppler (David Hyde Pierce,) is living proof that there will always be geeks, even in space.

There are also some awesome action scenes as ships battle in deep space. Jim flies around on his solar board and the pirates hit the fan with muskets blazing and cutlasses swinging. There are a few slow spots but most of Disney's Treasure Planet is full of action and fun.

If you're in the mood for a good adventure with pirates, robots, treasure, space geeks and wicked computer graphics - Disney's Treasure Planet is the flick for you. It's not perfect and the whole 'pirates in space' thing is a little hard to swallow (doesn't ANYONE wear a spacesuit?) but it's still a fun ride.

    • Doc Doppler - geeks in space rock.
