As a war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, a young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village.
The enduring friendship between the Walling and Ostroff families is tested when Nina, the prodigal Ostroff daughter, returns home for the holidays after a five-year absence and enters into an affair with David, head of the Walling family.
Robert Louis Steven's adventure tale has been told many times, but never before in such a wonderfully animated manner. The characters -- all cute animals, reminiscent of Disney's best -- are adorable and enchanting. The plot execution is kept brisk and humorous, so as to not frighten small kids. Our kids have watched their TREASURE ISLAND dozens of times, preferring it over THE LION KING, POCHAHONTAS, HERCULES and TARZAN. If you long for the feel-good animated adventures that Disney used to make, you'll love TREASURE ISLAND.
