Treasure Planet : 4 of 5
Disney has been releasing their new animated features on DVD quite quickly lately, and even though it takes away from the fun anticipation, it's great to see these movies at home so soon. I really enjoyed Treasure Planet in the theater (and I don't care if I'm in the minority), and it's just as good on DVD! All of the cool scenes (such as the crescent spaceport) look fantastically detailed. I've already reviewed the movie itself, so I'll just focus on the DVD and it's bonus materials, which are pretty nice, but lack substance. There's a little behind the scenes stuff, but not much, though the info on the combination of 2D and 3D elements is good. The "walk-throughs" of the CGI sets are interesting, but a little long and boring, and the deleted scenes are mostly fluff, except for one good one that would have been some great character development for Jim. I still love the DVD, though, since the movie is what I'm after!
