Corrected entry: How can Scroop grab the ropes to tie down sails if he has claws for hands? We know they are sharp when he cut Arrow's rope and sawed Jim's, and you can see his shadow grabbing the rope that remained intact.
Corrected entry: Silver goes to the galley to get his spyglass right before the mutiny. Why does Silver need that spyglass? Silver's cyborg eye has a built in spyglass, which we learn later when he sees Jim about to fall and zooms in to see that he is loosing grasp on his handhold. We also see another time that Silver uses the built in spyglass when Jim tells them to turn the ship around right before the planet blows up. Silver zooms in to see the portal, then zooms in even closer to see the 3D map. So since Silver can obviously see things from great distances very well, why would he need to go to galley?
Corrected entry: Once on Treasure-Planet, the pirates wish to find the treasure. The main character activates the Magic Ball and a vibrating laserbeam appears from this Ball which will lead them to the treasure. The pirates then tell him he can't come with them and as a consequence he de-activates the Ball and the beam disappears again. Then the pirates give in, he can come with them, and he re-activates the Ball and the beam reappears. They follow this beam in a small space ship hovering close to the planet's surface towards where the treasure should be. If you carefully look you can see the main character standing on deck (the space ship is a hovering small sailing-boat) with a de-activated Magic Ball in his hands. Where does the laserbeam come from?
Corrected entry: When Amelia is introducing herself to Doctor Doppler, she says "Late of a few run-ins with the Procyon Armada..." but the subtitle says "Protean Armada."
Corrected entry: This isn't for the movie, but on the newly-released DVD cover, Long John's cyborg hand is on his right shoulder in the front, and on his left shoulder on the picture in the back.
Corrected entry: You must float when you are flying because they needed a gravitational pull on the ship. Then how come when some of the pirates fall off the ship when the Captain, Jim and Delbert first escape, the pirates just keep falling. To top it off, later in the movie, one of the pirates floats away when the gravitational pull was shut off.sdgirl98
Corrected entry: At the time the original book, Treasure Island, was written there were still places that were uncharted, so an island that only pirates knew about was a reasonable idea, In the film, Doppler was naming places until he got to Treasure Planet...isn't it odd that the big thing was missed, with all that technology, and when it wasn't that far away from a known place?
Corrected entry: In the beginning, the main character is arrested by the police after trespassing in a power plant. The arrest follows after he smashes a fence with two warning lights on it. The funny thing here is that he is on a hovering space surfboard, so could have easily flown over and around the plant or even through it, without trespassing in the strict sense, yet he chose to fly straight through this meaningless fence, which is nothing more than a small piece of wood with red and white stripes, and has no function in a society where everybody flies on little hovering machines.
Corrected entry: The big boat/ship/spaceship with sails leaves the spaceport and artificial gravity is engaged to keep everybody (standing) on it. There are several fights taking place later in the film where characters fall overboard, as if they would fall into the sea, and then climb back into it. But as this 'ship' is in space there is no sea hence the moment the characters fall overboard they should hover away rather than being pulled down, because the artificial gravity is on the ship only, which is emphasised later when the main character is fighting the 'spider' on the ship's mast, when the artificial gravity is disabled. The moment the artificial gravity is engaged the spider's rope snaps off the mast and he hovers away into space, where as the main character hangs on to the mast and survives.
Corrected entry: When Silver is showing Jim how to tie knots, he ties a noose-shaped one. He then looks for Jim and he has made the knot and climbed down and is already walking along the edge of the boat. The was NO way he could have done it that quickly without knowing how to do it in the first place, but it looks looked like Silver was showing him for the first time. (00:33:40)
Corrected entry: I hope everyone notices this, and I know the movie just CAN'T work without it, but... everyone on the ship is living in an airless vacuum.
Corrected entry: Why is it that at the end of the movie, (just after they land...not when they are re-building the inn) Captain Amelia can walk and stand perfectly upright when no less then 30 min. ago she could barely stand?
Corrected entry: When Jim first meets B.E.N. the shock makes him drop his gun and we see it on the sand. However, in the next shot it has now appeared stuffed down the back of Jim's pants.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film The Robot indicates to the remaining characters on the big boat (read: spaceship) how much time they have left before the planet explodes. The big boat is headed for the time-portal, so time is critical. If you count the amount of seconds from the first announcement by the robot and all subsequent announcements in real time until the planet explodes, the robot has got it wrong every time. In all announcements he is approx. 10-15 seconds ahead of real time, so they have in fact a little bit longer to reach the portal.
