If you want to experience success you’ve got to chart your own course.

Story
In this space adventure Jim Hawkins is a troubled teen who never recovered from his father’s abandonment. From the time he was a child he was thrilled with the story of a legendary Treasure Planet where a futuristic space pirate had left a horde of gold and jewels called Flint’s Trove.

After Jim comes into possession of a high-tech map leading to Treasure Planet, his mother’s friend Doctor Doppler arranges for a ship captained by Amelia, and the two set sail, traversing the universe in pursuit of the treasure.

Captain Amelia places Jim under the supervision of John Silver the cook, who eventually becomes both his father figure and adversary.
Doppler has recruited a rag-tag bunch of misfits for a crew and it turns out what they have in common is a desire to recover the Trove under the leadership of john Silver.

Disney relied on stunning animation over clear storyline in this adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s TREASURE ISLAND, and they tried to appeal to teens with a result that will not satisfy young kids or teens.
