Why It's Great Edit
- As gimmicky as the idea is, it's still a very creative take on the story that has never been done before
- The relationships between the characters are genuine, whether it be Jim and Silver or the former and his mother, which are sweet, or Dr. Doppler and Captain Amelia, who play off of each other wonderfully
- There are some really creative ideas, such as having an entire moon as a docking bay, the mechanics on Long John Silver, or the shapeshifting Morph
- The song "I'm Still Here" is really moving and helps to sympathize with Jim's plight
- Jim Hawkins is a very relatable character
- Exciting action scenes
- Like Dinosaur and Atlantis, it does not shy away in killing off supporting characters.
- Unique for a Disney film is the fact that Jim's father actually left his family, as opposed to killing him as is traditional of an animated Disney film.
