The legendary "loot of a thousand worlds" inspires an intergalactic treasure hunt when fifteen-year-old Jim Hawkins (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) stumbles upon a map to the greatest pirate trove in the universe in Walt Disney Pictures' thrilling new 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 cabin boy aboard a glittering space galleon.

Befriended by the ship's charismatic cyborg (part man, part machine) cook John Silver (Brian Murray), Jim blossoms under his guidance, and shows the makings of a fine spacer as he and the alien crew battle supernovas, black holes and ferocious space storms. But even greater dangers lie ahead when Jim discovers that his trusted friend Silver is actually a scheming pirate with mutiny in mind. Confronted with a betrayal that cuts deep to his soul, Jim is transformed from boy to man as he finds the strength to face down the mutineers and discovers a "treasure" greater than he had ever imagined.

Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the acclaimed writing/directing team responsible for THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN and HERCULES, this exciting new adaptation takes animation to the furthest reaches of the imagination.
