Treasure Planet

This kid-friendly disc serves as an advance for the DVD release of Disney's Treasure Planet feature, while emphasizing the story's roots in the written word. The main attraction is the movie's story, which can be read aloud in five different languages while viewers watch successive, still images from the original animated film. Sound strange? Sure, but the process is engrossing for children--a natural audience for storytelling. Also on board is a multilingual vocabulary experience, in which you can hear words associated with Treasure Planet's story (e.g., "chest") in Spanish, Italian, French, etc. Two songs from the film, written and performed by Goo Goo Dolls icon John Rzeznik, also get the image-by-image treatment, though the disc also includes a powerful, ghostly celestial music video for Rzeznik's "I'm Still Here (Jim's Theme)." There's also a game compatible with Playstation 2 (and other gaming consoles with DVD drive). --Tom Keogh

[Jim has been escorted home by two police robots]

Police Robot 1:
[to Sarah Hawkins] We apprehended your son operating a solar vehicle in a restricted area.

Police Robot 2:
Moving Violation 9-0-4, Section 15, Paragraph... um...

Jim Hawkins:
Six?

Police Robot 2:
Thank you.

Jim Hawkins:
Don't mention it.

Sarah Hawkins:
[in exasperation] Jim!

Police Robot 1:
As you are aware, ma'am, this constitutes a violation of his probation.

Sarah Hawkins:
[stuttering for an explanation] Yes, yes- No, I mean, I understand, but, um, co-couldn't we just-?

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[interrupting] Um, pardon me, officers, if I might, uh, interject here? I am the noted astrophysicist Dr. Delbert Doppler. Perhaps you've heard of me? [awkward silence] No? I have a clipping.

Police Robot 1:
Are you the boy's father?

Delbert and Sarah:
Oh! Good heavens, no!

Sarah Hawkins:
Eww! He's just an old friend of the family.

Both Police Robots:
[to Delbert] Back off, sir!

Sarah Hawkins:
Thank you, Delbert. I will take it from here.

Delbert:
Well, Sarah, if you insist. [under his breath] Don't ever let me do that again.

Police Robot 1:
[to Sarah] Due to repeated violations of statute 15-C, we have impounded his vehicle. Any more slip-ups will result in a one-way ticket to Juvenile Hall.

Police Robot 2:
Kiddie hoosegow.

Police Robot 1:
The slammo.

Sarah Hawkins:
Thank you, officers. [towards Jim, firmly] It won't happen again.

Police Robot 1:
We see his type all the time, ma'am.

Police Robot 2:
Wrong choices.

Police Robot 1:
Dead-enders.

Police Robot 2:
Losers.

[Jim glares at them.]

Police Robot 1:
[tips his hat] You take care now.

Police Robot 2:
Let's motor.

[They depart, leaving an awkward silence behind them]

Jim Hawkins:
[after discovering the map to Treasure Planet] Mom, this is it! This is the answer to all our problems!

Sarah Hawkins:
Jim, there is absolutely no way--

Jim Hawkins:
Don't you remember? All those stories?

Sarah Hawkins:
That's all they were; stories.

Jim Hawkins:
[frustrated] With that treasure, we could rebuild the Benbow a hundred times over!

Sarah Hawkins:
Well, this-- it's just-- oh, my. Delbert, would you please explain how ridiculous this is?

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
It's totally preposterous, traversing the entire galaxy alone.

[Jim rolls his eyes]

Sarah Hawkins:
Now at last, we hear some sense.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
That's why I'm going with you! [pulls out a suitcase]

Sarah Hawkins:
Delbert!

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[runs around packing things] She'll use her savings to finance the expedition; I'll commission a ship, hire a captain and a crew...

Sarah Hawkins:
You're not serious?

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[slides down a tower of books] All my life, I've been waiting for an opportunity like this, and here it is screaming! "Go, Delbert! Go, Delbert...!"

Sarah Hawkins:
[frustrated] Okay, okay! You're both grounded! [sighs]

Jim Hawkins:
Mom, look. I know that I keep messing everything up. And I know...that I let you down. But this is my chance to make it up to you. I'm gonna set things right.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
If I may? [quietly speaks to her] You said yourself, you've tried everything. There are much worse remedies than a few character-building months in space.

Sarah Hawkins:
Are you saying this because it's the right thing or because you really wanna go?

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
I really, really, really, really want to go. And it's the right thing.

[Sarah turns to Jim with a worried expression]

Sarah Hawkins:
Jim... I don't wanna lose you.

Jim Hawkins:
[smiles] Mom... You won't. we'll make you proud.

[Sarah smiles back]

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
Well, ahem, there we are, then. We'll begin preparations at once. Jim, my boy, soon we'll be off to the spaceport.

Captain Amelia:
Dear Charlotte. To mule and blabber about a treasure map in front of this particular crew demonstrates a level of ineptitude that borders on the imbecilic. And I mean that is a very caring way.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[taken aback] "Imbecilic," did you say? Foolishness! I've got--

Captain Amelia:
[interrupting] May I see the Map, please?

[Delbert looks at Jim, Jim has a refusing look on his face. Delbert then gestures for him to give it up in a more serious manner. Jim tosses the Map to the Captain.]

Jim Hawkins:
[flatly] Here.

[The Captain catches the Map, then looks at it with an observing smile.]

Captain Amelia:
Hmm! Fascinating. [She then heads over to a cabinet and places the Map in a small chest.] Mr. Hawkins, in the future, you will address me as "Captain" or "Ma'am." Is that clear?

[Jim doesn't reply, but instead, rolls his eyes and looks away.]

Captain Amelia:
[glances back at Jim with a serious look and speaks in a more serious tone.] Mr. Hawkins?

Jim Hawkins:
[flatly and somewhat annoyed, but still respectful] Yes, ma'am.

Captain Amelia:
That'll do. [closes the cabinet and locks it. Puts the key in her pocket.] Gentlemen, this must be kept under lock and key when not in use. And, Doctor, again - with the greatest possible respect - zip your howling screamer.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
Captain, I assure you that--

Captain Amelia:
[interrupting] Let me make this as... monosyllabic as possible. I... don't much care for this crew you hired. They're-- How did I describe them, Arrow? I said something rather good this morning before coffee.

Mr. Arrow:
"A ludicrous parcel of driveling galoots", ma'am.

Captain Amelia:
[smiles smugly] There you go, poetry.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[indignant] Now, see here--!

Captain Amelia:
Doctor, I'd love to chat - tea, cake, the whole shebang - but I have a ship to launch, and you've got your outfit to buff up. Mr. Arrow, please escort these two neophytes down to the galley straightaway. Young Hawkins will be working for our cook, Mr. Silver.

Jim Hawkins:
[stops poking at a navigation tool and looks up, surprised] W-uh, what? The cook?

[Down at the galley]

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
That woman! That... feline! Whom does she think is working for whom?!

Jim Hawkins:
It's my map, and she's got me bussin' tables--

Mr. Arrow:
[sternly interrupting] I'll not tolerate a cross word about our captain! There's no finer officer in this or any galaxy.

[They see a figure standing in a dark corner with a knife, whistling]

Mr. Arrow:
Mr. Silver!

[Silver turns around to greet the trio, revealing his mechanical arm, leg, ear, and eye]

John Silver:
Why, Mr. Arrow, sir! Bringin' such fine-lookin' distinguished gents to brace me humble galley? Had I known, I'd have tucked in me shirt! [tucks in his apron and chuckles while Jim observes his mechanical body parts.]

Jim Hawkins:
[whispering to himself, remembering Billy Bones's dying warning] A cyborg!

Mr. Arrow:
May I introduce Dr. Doppler, the financier of our voyage.

John Silver:
[uses his cyborg eye to observe Doppler's suit] Love the outfit, doc!

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[Uncomfortably] Uh... thank you. Love the eye! [Trying to divert Silver's attention] This young lad is Jim Hawkins.

John Silver:
Jimbo! [Holds out his arm for Jim to shake it, but there are five sharp tools instead of five fingers. Silver notices and switches it to a hand. Jim glares at the arm and Silver untrusting. Silver simply smiles and prepares a dish.] Ah, now, don't be too put off by this hunk o' hardware. [Switches from hand to small knife-like scissors. Slices up some shellfish into a bowl. Switches from scissors to cleaver to cut up some vegetables, but he does this without looking and almost cuts off his left hand. Has a shocked look and then just smiles again.] Whoa! Heh-heh. [Switches the cyborg arm from cleaver to three clawed mini-arms. Throws three eggs and cracks them into the bowl.] These gears have been tough gettin' used to, but they do come in mighty handy from time to time. [Switches his arm as he throws the bowl on top and fire comes shooting out for a couple seconds. Pours the stew into a pot set on top of an open stove and adds some salt. Takes out a spoon and tries it to see if it's just right. Has an approving smile on his face. Pours some stew into two bowls, one for Delbert and one for Jim.] Here, now. Have a taste of me famous Bonzabeast Stew.

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[sniffing, and then tasting the stew] Mmm! Delightfully tangy, yet robust.

John Silver:
Old family recipe. [Doppler sees an eyeball float to the top of the stew and yelps.] In fact, that was part of the old family! [laughs heartily] Ah, I'm just kiddin', doc. [Takes out the eye and swallows it.] I'm nuttin' if I ain't a kidder. [Sees Jim hesitating.] Go on, Jimbo, have a swig.

[Jim looks at the spoon again. Suddenly the top turns into a little pink face stuffed with the stew. The rest of the spoon does the same, revealing the form of smiling, pink blob. Turns into a straw and devours the rest of the stew in a flash.]

John Silver:
Morph! You jiggle-headed blob o' mischief! So that's where you was hidin'!

[Morph peeks over the top of the bowl, chatters, then belches. He floats up and rubs against Jim's cheek.]

Jim Hawkins:
Heh. What is that thing?

Morph:
[imitating Jim] "What is that thing?"

[Jim touches Morph, who then shapeshifts into a miniature version of Jim.]

John Silver:
He's... a Morph. I rescued the little shapeshifter on Proteus One.

[Morph transforms back and floats over the Silver; they cuddle each other.]

John Silver:
Aw, he took a shine to me. We've been together ever since.

[Bell rings up on deck.]

Mr. Arrow:
We're about to get underway. Would you like to observe the launch, Doctor?

Dr. Delbert Doppler:
[thrilled] Would I?! Does an active galactic nucleus have superluminal jets?! [awkward silence] I'll follow you.

[Jim starts to follow them out, but is stopped by Arrow.]

Mr. Arrow:
Mr. Hawkins will stay here, in your charge, Mr. Silver.

John Silver:
[spits out the stew, surprised] Beggin' your pardon, sir, but, uh--

Mr. Arrow:
Captain's orders! See to it the new cabin boy's kept busy.

[Both Jim and Silver attempt to protest, giving up simultaneously as Arrow departs.]

John Silver:
So... Cap'n's put you with me, eh? [walks around Jim]

Jim Hawkins:
[flatly] Whatever.

John Silver:
[smiles and starts to prepare another dish.] Ah, who be a humble cyborg to argue with a Cap'n?

Jim Hawkins:
Yeah... [Grabs a purp from a barrel and starts to walk around.] Ya know... These purps, they're kinda like the ones back home... On Montressor. Ya ever been there?

John Silver:
Ah... Can't says I have, Jimbo.

Jim Hawkins:
[taking a bite out of the purp] Come to think of it, just before I left, I met this old guy who was, uh... He was kind of looking for a cyborg buddy of his.

John Silver:
Is that so?

Jim Hawkins:
Yeah. What was that old salamander's name? Oh, yeah. Bones. Billy Bones?

John Silver:
Bones? BONES? ...Eh, 'tain't ringin' any bells. Must've been a different cyborg. There's a slew of cyborgs roamin' this port.

Scroop:
Cabin boys should learn to mind their own business.

Jim Hawkins:
Why? You got something to hide, bright-eyes?

[Angered, Scroop snatches Jim up.]

Scroop:
Maybe your ears don't work so well.

Jim Hawkins:
Yeah. [grunts] Too bad my nose works just fine.

Scroop:
Why, you impudent little...!

[Scroop slams Jim against the mast. Members of the crew gather to egg him on.]

Krailoni:
Go ahead! Slice him, dice him!

Scroop:
[holding a claw to Jim's throat] Any last words, cabin boy?

John Silver:
[grabs Scroop's claw] Mr. Scroop... you ever see what happens to a fresh purp when you squeeze real hard? [he squeezes Scroop's claw, making him gasp in pain and drop Jim]

Mr. Arrow:
[approaching] What's all this, then? You know the rules. There'll be no brawling on this ship. Any further offenders will be confined to the brig for the remainder of the voyage. [glares at Scroop] Am I clear, Mr. Scroop?

Scroop:
[glares at Mr. Arrow, but is given a warning scowl by Silver] Transparently. [gives one last glare at Arrow as he and the other ship members leave]

John Silver:
Well, done, Mr. Arrow, sir! A tight ship's a happy ship, sir! [angrily grabs the mop and turns towards Jim] Jimbo, I gave you a job!

Jim Hawkins:
Hey, I was doing it, until that bug thing...

John Silver:
BELAY THAT!!! [hands Jim the mop] Now, I want this deck swabbed spotless, and heaven help ye if I come back and it's not done! Morph? [Morph appears] Keep an eye on this pup, let me know if there be anymore distractions.

Morph:
OK. Aye-yie! [Morph's eyes become big as he stares at Jim while he mops]
