It's laced with literate humor, and the directors cite N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for the 1911 Scribner's edition of Treasure Island as the inspiration for their marvelously detailed fantasy world.

'Treasure Plane' starts with the clever idea of transforming the story into an old-fashioned space opera, and the animated visuals are handily up to the studio's best. Yet the film's total appeal may be undercut by a script that rarely feels inspired.

Treasure Planet doesn't have the charm of Disney's last homegrown release, Lilo & Stitch, or the dazzling artistry of Spirited Away. But it's a capable and diverting holiday season adventure for a family audience.

Don't look for gravity-bound logic here. This is cartoon fantasy, not a literal translation, although in its way it stays pretty close to Stevenson's characters and storyline.

If Treasure Planet falls short of Lion King's classic status, it still proves there is plenty of room in animation for movies that aren't geared exclusively to 8-year-olds.

As literary desecrations go, this makes for perfectly acceptable, occasionally very enjoyable children's entertainment. You'll forget about it by Monday, though, and if they're old enough to have developed some taste, so will your kids.
