Treasure Planet is so underrated it should be a crime
My friend just got back from Canada and she said that no one she spoke to for a WHOLE YEAR had seen it or even heard of it!


Total childhood classic if you ask me. I mean seriously, literal 'space ships' running on solar with an alien pirate crew? Mutiny, treasure, a planet blowing up, redemption for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and that really cool storybook at the beginning? I will always love Treasure Planet!

Wait, are you talking about Disney's Treasure Planet or the 1982 Treasure Planet? (I've only seen the Disney one, I'm very sorry, my friends, if you are talking about the latter.)

It was a passion project that the evil corporation inexplicably did the creative team so dirty…theatrical release was in December opposite the very first Harry Potter movie. If only Treasure Planet had been a summer release that year, wayyy more people would've watched it.

Then again, I did get to catch it when it was showing on the Disney channel, and…the budget definitely showed, the plot had always been solid adaptation of a classic, and the aesthetics were chef's kiss (the 70/30 rule of which percent would be Victorian and which percent would be Star Trek.)
