Trivia

The film was originally to be made in Egypt, but it was decided to film in Australia instead to lower production costs. Egypt's relations with the West did not really begin to deteriorate until 1955, when the Nasser regime publicly recognized Communist China's claim to Taiwan and began importing arms from the Soviet Union via the Soviet client state of Czechoslovakia.

The original 1950 "Treasure Island" version is pretty well known, but most people aren't aware there's a sequel. I believe Disney did not have any involvement in this. It shows, but then again, Disney sequels aren't known for their quality. As far as I know, this isn't based on any book Robert Louis Stevenson made. Hey, my last name is Stevenson! It's more or less a retread of the original film. This is by no means awful, it's just okay. The best parts about it are easily the acting. Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver are portrayed just as well as in the original movie. While they're not given that much material, it's still entertaining to see these people again.

The film's main faults are that it isn't paced well and doesn't have much of a new story. I still like how they are trying to expand the mythology of the series. The color stands out really well, too. It seems like this movie had a really good length as well. It's just that the story isn't that interesting. My advice is just see the original, but this one is completely harmless. **1/2
