4.0 out of 5 stars Great Surprise! 22 Sep 2002
By stephen smelley - Published on
Great book! It has plenty of background info and production and prepoduction work. The Glenn Keane animation drawings alone are worth getting the book. I enjoy the behind the seens work in animation productions as well as the films themselves. I believe this book satisfies interest on both accounts. This book is a welcome addition to anyone's library. I look forward to seeing the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful piece for any fan or collector 22 Dec 2002
By Emily J. Morris - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thorougly enjoyed the movie "Treasure Planet" for the art as much as the story. It really was one of Disney's most beautiful films.
That's why I enjoyed this book so much. It gives an in-depth look at the art, the style, the making, etc. Each character is discussed with their background. Best of all, there are amazing pictures--sketch, rough-draft, final--that are absolutely georgous.
This book is a great look into the movie. If you loved "Treasure Planet", you will appreciate this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done book 10 Dec 2002
By Oshram - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While not as extensive as the old Hyperion editions, this 'art of' Treasure Planet is a good, solid book, a must for fans of the film. The work goes into detail on all the major designs and characters and gives us pictures of even the minorest walk on. I would have liked a bit more art from the film, but given the shoddy way Disney seems to be abandoning this film, I'm pleased we got this book at all. A nice piece of work and a must for any fan of the film or Disney collector.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not only a great coffe table, also a "before slumber" book 13 Mar 2003
By Rodolfo Vidal - Published on
This sort of new type of "Behind the Scenes" and "The Art of" books created lately by disney is great. The price is more than just right. The quality of the form is awesome: great pictures, quality of the paper... and the content is very good also: a real close up look at the process of making the film. Also, a very interesting analysis of the virtual world created by Disney for this film. When I saw the movie I simply enjoyed it. Now that the video-dvd is comming out, I can't wait to own it and watch the film again, thanks to this book. The analysis of all the parafernalia, the planets that were created, the imagery, the psychological study of the characters and the animation itself, both 2D and 3D is really good. I truly recommend this book to any Disney aficionado. It helps you understand the film better. Also, the process of its creation. It's a treasure in itself. You don't need to go to any planet to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN UNDERRATED MOVIE, AN UNSUNG CLASSIC 8 April 2005
By Gotham Girl18 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I wanted to see some of the artwork that was part of a movie that my teacher from Art Center worked on. Yes, I must confess, I have never seen the movie, but bought it because I love collecting books on art and animation.

I have to agree with a previous review that pointed out that this book should have come out in hardcover format. It is too bad that Disney ignored it, and cut out on advertising, because the artwork is truly a treat. Nonetheless, I'm glad to include this book in my collection; it's more than worth its retail price!
