    If you didn't see this one in theaters, it's a very good adaptation of Treasure Island set in space. No word on specs yet, but it looks like Disney is streeting the disc on 4/29. Here's the cover:

    They fucked up the cover! Where's the beautiful theatrical poster art??????? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    There's better be a 2-disc CE (make it a doubleheader with Lilo & Stitch 2-disc CE).

    Disney DVDs generally have the worst covers, unless of course they're 2-disc special editions.

    No 2-disc version listed for the same street date; perhaps far off in the future.

    The cover is godawful. The movie was not nearly as bad as some people have made it out to be.

    There's an interesting article at http://jimhillmedia.com explaining why this flopped at the theaters. Not because it's not very good (it's VERY good), but because everyone knew Disney would be putting it out on DVD within 6 months of its theatrical release.

    I definitely won't buy it unless there's a good 2 disc set with DTS. I'm still holding out on Lilo & Stitch for the same reasons.

    PaulP, tell us how you really feel. [​IMG] The cover's not the greatest but the movie is what really counts and it's a good one.

    I will be buying this sight unseen which I don't usually do for a movie, but I expect to like this one a lot.

    Checked two DVD sites for the specs on Treasure Planet and neither mention the aspect ratio the disc will have. Hope Disney doesn't make this 4:3 because of the poor theatrical run, trying to maximize kiddie profits.

    Doubt it will be Fullscreen. The announced extras sound...okay. Like a poor man's Atlantis CE, actually.

    And the specs do say 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen.

    Well these appear to be the full features for the release:
    ------------------------------
    DVD Features:
    Three Navigational Platforms including:
    * Visual Commentary (In addition to providing audio commentary, join the Producer and Directors as they take viewers behind the scenes)
    * Family Menu
    * Behind-The-Scenes Menu
    Deleted Scenes
    Alternate Ending
    RLS Legacy Game
    Take a virtual 3-D tour of the ship and be challenged to the ultimate treasure hunt
    Disney's Animated Magic
    Go behind the scenes with Walt Disney Feature Animation Chairman Roy Disney
    Disney Pedia: The Life of A Pirate Revealed
    Discover fun and interesting tales of the age of piracy
    Still Art Galleries
    Character Galleries
    Animation Featurette
    Dimensional Staging
    Merging 2D and 3D Worlds
    Music Featurette
    Music Video
    And Much More
    Widescreen anamorphic format
    ------------------------------
    So at least it's widescreen.
    The features listed seem to match the ones certified by the BBFC shown here. I'm disapponted it won't be a two disc set ("Curse You Disney") but I'm happy that the still artwork gallaries are included. Let's hope that they have more substance than the 'scrapbooks' found on most Gold Collection Discs.
    And what's a "Family Menu"? Does Disney have something against Families? Because it sounds like Disney equate families with idiots - A "Family Friendly" Disc featuring a P&S transfer in the Roger Rabbit VISTA release, "Family Friendly" widescreen (where the borders are not as big), and now a "Family Menu" - presumably it only has one option... play!

    I cannot see even Disney making this a 4x3 only release.
