Ahoy, Matey! Welcome back to another exciting episode of Not a Bomb podcast. On this episode, the gang is once again discussing a sci-fi/animated film, this time in the form of space pirates - Treasure Planet. The film would mark the third time Disney adapted the Robert Louis Stevenson novel, Treasure Island ,and is known as one of the biggest bombs in the mouse’s history. With a colossal budget of $140,000,000, Treasure Planet is the most expensive hand-drawn animated film of all time.
Treasure Planet was created by the powerhouse team of Musker and Clements, who created such films as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Hercules. Of course, all of those films were major successes for Disney. However, when Treasure Planet was released, there was stiff competition from a boy wizard, a British spy, and Tim Allen in a fat suit.
Treasure Planet is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Brian Murray, Emma Thompson, David Hype Pierce, Michael Wincott, Laurie Metcalf, Martin Short, Roscoe Lee Browne, and Patrick McGoohan.
