Title: Spelljammer inspiration from a movie made in 2002
Post by: angelicdoctor on July 03, 2017, 09:50:22 AM
Last evening, the family and I sat down to watch a movie I haven't seen in a very long time but one in which I thought the community here might find inspirational especially if you like the Spelljammer supplement.  Check out the Disney-animated Treasure Island science-fiction 'remake', Treasure Planet (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133240/).

Anyone here remember watching this show?  If so, what'd you think?

I saw it a while back. I thought the movie was just okay but I loved he concept.

All of the kids loved the movie including the 19 year-old.  I thought the father-son themes explored with Hawkins/Silver was very well done.  This was something that has been lacking in much of Disney's catalog catering as it has so often does to the more effeminate at least since the 1990s.

The ship design concepts and the approach to interstellar space travel are what motivated me to post here, however.

It's been a while since I have seen it but I will have your see it again. My kids haven't seen it but they have been on a Disney kick lately.

I kind of prefer the pseudo technology of this movie to the more magic based tech of Spelljammer. You can however bring in Spelljammer concepts like air in space.
