Treasure Planet -- The Official Homepage

Work has been tough, but I'm liking the challenge. It is very familiar and seems like I wasn't really gone for one and a half years. There are definitely benefits to having worked in the trenches first. I think I'm gonna like it here, to quote Little Orphan Annie.

I was checking out what Disney has online for their new summer movie "Lilo & Stitch" and came across the above site containing an online trailer for this movie due out this fall. The concept is simple and follows the formula of last year's summer movie, "Atlantis," which was simply Jules Vern's "Journey to the Center of the Earth" redux. In other words, Treasure Planet is R.L. Stevenson's Treasure Island updated for 21st century audiences with sky surfing and air ships equipped with solar sails. The artwork looks like it will be very much worth seeing, perhaps a mix of "Atlantis" and "Tarzan". The new crop of animators at Disney are really honing their craft. I'd like to see something more original. Dreamworks, Don Bluth and others are doing more original stuff.
