Treasure Planet is one of my all time favourite Disney films with the great plot, great voice acting, great animation....well great everything! So, since it isn't getting a sequel, I thought I'd do my fan cast for a live action remake of the film!
Jim Hawkins - Asa Butterfield
Asa Butterfield is no stranger to the big screen and he is a talented actor starring in films like Ender's Game and Hugo, he can clearly pull of playing the Teenage Jim Hawkins with ease.
Captain Amelia - Hayley Atwell
Hayley Atwell is an extremely good actress and can definitely pull off playing a tough, strong, sophisticated and independent woman such as her role of Peggy Carter in the MCU, Hayley Atwell would be an excellent choice for Captain Amelia.
John Silver - Geoffrey Rush
Geoffrey Rush is a great actor and I really think he could bring the character of John Silver to life on the big screen and he could really show the complex emotions and personality of Silver.
Mr Arrow - Henry Simmons
Henry Simmons is a good actor and I really think he could pull off playing the tough, no nonsense but very polite, Mr Arrow in a live action film. Plus he definitely has the look down.
Sarah Hawkins - Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly is a very good actress and I can definitely see her taking on the loving, caring and worried mother of Jim in a live action remake. I really think Connelly would be wonderful in this role.
B.E.N - Martin Short
Why replace something that doesn't need replacing? Martin Short is B.E.N, they could just CGI him or something.
Doctor Doppler - James D'Arcy
James D'Arcy would be a fantastic Doctor Doppler in my mind because he is a great actor, has good comedic timing plus great chemistry with Hayley Atwell on and off screen. He would be great in the role of this goofy doctor.
So, I know there are many more characters in Treasure Planet but I just wanted to do some of the more main characters.
I also just realised that three of the actors on this list are in the MCU, well at least Disney already has them under their belt if they decide to roll with my idea (How very unlikely) which would be cool.
So, that is my list. If you have any suggestions or any fan casting to add for characters I didn't list, I'd love to hear it!
Or read it... it kind of works that way.
Anyway, thanks for reading!
