Treasure Planet

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)

Continuity mistake: Sometimes the "warped" patterns of glass in Amelia's cabin change, and after being replaced from the Surpernova (in which we see glass being shattered and that is the only glass in the ship that we see) every pane is warped.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the movie where Baby Jim is talking about Treasure Planet, he crawls under the top sheet of his bed that has been folded half way up the bottom of the bed, and peeks out the bottom. That's fine and all but then his mother straightens out the sheet and covers him up. You then see that the part he just peeked out of was the folded part so he shouldn't have been able to peek out.

Trivia: There is a little reference to the novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Ben, the robot, upon meeting Jimmy says something like "Solitude is great, but 100 years of it..."

Doctor Doppler: Just wait until we tell your mother about this! Of course, we may downplay the life-threatning parts.

Captain Amelia: Let me make this as mono-syllabic as possible. I don't care for this crew you hired. They're...How did I describe them Arrow? I said something rather good about them before coffee.

Question: Were John Silver, and the mutineers led by him, the same guys who burned Jim's mother's inn?

Answer: It's heavily implied that it is. But I believe it's meant to be a bit ambiguous.

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.
