Continuity mistake: When Dr. Doppler and Jim first observe their ship, Dr. Doppler is right next to Jim when he points it out. When the shot changes to a long shot, they're much farther apart. (00:16:55)

More quotes from Treasure Planet

Question: They mention his dad leaving with no follow-up or importance to the film (apart from him finding his new father figure). What do we know about his father leaving, and why? Or was it a set-up for the Treasure Planet 2 film which was unfortunately cancelled?

Answer: The father abandoned the family because he apparently did not want the responsibility of providing for them. It's an old story of wayward irresponsible men leaving their wife and children for their own selfish reasons. Whether or not it would have figured in a sequel is unknown.
