Treasure Planet was a sci-fi twist on Treasure Island.
Disney’s Treasure Planet came out 20 years ago today. On November 27th, 2002, the animated science fiction adventure film hit theaters and unfortunately became a flop. The film grossed $110 million globally on a $140 million budget. It was based on Robert Louis’ 1883 novel Treasure Island and featured the voices of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emma Thompson, and Martin Short.
The legendary “loot of a thousand worlds” inspires an intergalactic treasure hunt when 15-year-old Jim Hawkins stumbles upon a map to the greatest pirate trove in the universe in Walt Disney Pictures’ thrilling animated space adventure, “Treasure Planet.” Based on one of the greatest adventure stories ever told – Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island” – this film follows Jim’s fantastic journey across a parallel universe as a cabin boy aboard a glittering space galleon.
