Best Disney Movie I’ve Seen: Treasure Planet (2002)

I didn’t see this Disney cartoon as a kid because I figured it was lame. It was the biggest flop in Disney history (I think it cost $140 million and domestic box office was $38 million). Anyway, now that I’ve seen it, all I can I conclude is that the box office gods are inscrutably whimsical & beyond understanding.

It’s the best Disney movie I’ve seen. It’s even better than the good stuff like Mulan or Tangled (or the older stuff like Jungle Book, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, etc.).

It’s still a kid’s movie, but one that touches on real stuff in a real way that makes it funny and moving, because life is like that. OK, I’m doing a bad job explaining it. Just go watch it–its only 90 minutes and it’s free on Netflix.

So this clip won’t mean much to you if you haven’t seen the movie already. And it’s kind of a spoiler. So go watch the film first if you haven’t yet.

  1. Its one of my favorite Disney movies also. Admittedly I didn’t know it did so bad at the box office. yikes. But I feel it is brilliant and that song… be still my heart! I had the biggest crush on Jim as a young girl (younger girl, rather).
