An entertaining adaption
15 June 2017 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

I sat down and watched this out of pure curiosity. I mean, DiC never let me down before so why would this be any different? It wasn't. This one was actually more faithful to the actual novel than the 1954 Disney adaption, although not entirely accurate. It also threw in something that really was not necessary. Whoever was writing the script must have had Titanic on the mind because the character of Bernadette was almost identical to that of Rose.

Starting in the modern day, 3 young kids go skin diving off the coast of New York and find a treasure chest containing a journal. The journal, is essentially 20,000 leagues under the sea, as told by a young Bernadette, who smuggles herself aboard the Abraham Lincoln after Professor Arronax, his faithful assistant Conseil, and the Canadian Harpoonist Ned Land, who is actually African-Canadian in this adaption. Just a side note, According to the Jules Verne novel, Ned Land is Canadian. It's true, look it up.

Unlike most TV movie animated films, this one isn't all that bad but if it didn't include the romantic subplot between Professor Arronax and his future wife it would've probably been a whole lot better. I'm not against romance but here I had no idea it was a romance until Arronax and his future wife kissed.

Overall, it's definitely worth a view but I still like Disney's adaption better even if it's not even half-accurate to the novel.
